Sometimes we take things in this world for granted; photographs are no exception. Most of us have a camera and we utilize it regularly without much thought. However, there are still people in this world that can not afford to have their portraits done or get a printed keepsake of their loved ones. This is a really cool worldwide photography project that I’m joining this year; its called Help Portrait. On December 5, 2015
Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists using their time, tools and expertise to give back to those in need.

I found this video pretty informative and very useful when creating your own photography project and where to start so that you are successful in its completion. Alan and Morrigan will take you from brainstorm through edit, and discuss expanding and polishing individual project ideas through final production and marketing. Become empowered to utilize innovative technologies and social media to get your project seen. This workshop will also touch on crowd-funding, grants, and corporate sponsorship. Please feel free to bring your project ideas as a portion of the time will be used for collaborative brainstorming.
Alan and Morrigan have spent the past five years designing and executing two long-term photographic projects that they have shown and lectured about internationally.
