Help Portrait 2011 - Getting Started

Friends and Followers,

I am supremely excited to announce that planning for this year's Help-Portrait event in Flagstaff has officially begun!

If you are unfamiliar with Help-Portrait, please take 2:26 to watch last year's "intro to H-P" commercial:

I've updated the official Help-Portrait Community page for Flagstaff and will continue to do so up to the day of the event. Each major update that goes there will also be published here on my blog. Please not that although the video says Dec. 4 - this year our day to give back is December 10th. I don't know why they haven't released a new video...

The tentative list of volunteers and donations to make the day a success is shown below. Our goal this year is at least 200 people photographed, walking out the door with 8x10 prints.

8 Photographers
4 workflow people
1 print slicer/dicer
4 runners
2 front desk greeters
2 makeup artists
1 outreach/advertising pro

Munchies and juice for guests
Munchies and lunch for volunteers
Banners and signs to hang around campus and direct traffic

NAU is graciously donating the use of the studios, lighting equipment, backdrops, printers and inks. We have well over 200 feet of paper leftover from last year's generous donation from Mike and Maureen Beaty. 

If you're interested in volunteering, donating, or you have mad hookups to help us out, please drop me an email at Please include your contact information and what you'd like to do to help out. Please include "Help-Portrait" in the subject line of your email!
