Public Service Announcement. I meant to get this up last week, but was buried. Great idea pulled together by fellow photog, Jeremy Cowart, that he ran with first over at Scott Kelby’s blog and then followed at Help-Portrait.com.
We don’t need to know the details here, but if you are planning to help, say so here. It will inspire others to do the same. I plan to help. Will you?

Just wanna tell that this is very helpful , Thanks for taking your time to enter this.
So I say “HELP-Video”! That’s right . I said it. I’m going to start my own movement with my own puppydog eyed ultra-uber laid back half shaven God-rock youth preacher stating the rockin’ way to help the poor ones with video! HD BluRay 1090 magnum pi video with full DOLBY thx thc! The indigents won’t know what hit em! My crew of 6 will follow them around for a full day (or 12 hours whichever is less) and rock the boom mic (out of the shot of course)! then 12 weeks later they’ll be shipped this amazing digital experience complete with 60 fps slow mo in just the right spots and a triplescoop music (thanks ron) score to boot! They’ll feel loved and they will love my crew and they will have to sign a waiver stating that if they try and show it to anyone, they’ll incur a privacy viewing fee of $250 per contract. thanks J Christ!
Making a difference takes bold, unconventional ideas, even at the risk of sounding sappy and cheesy. Changing lives and helping people is the bottom line. That does not always equate to something momentary. Inspiration and caring is a far more powerful thing than money could ever provide, “a catalyst to get people in action”. It is a sad to read such blatant disparagement of such positive ideas.

Man. I have read a lot of the comments on here. And I must say that when I first watched Jeremy's video, I didn't take it as helping the homeless.
I took it as going out and taking a photo of people who would love and appreciate a good photo but just can't afford it.
My first thought was "who could really benefit from this in my area?" Maybe I get a hold of the local police and set something up since they risk their lives for me. Or for fire men & women. Or for EMTs. Maybe families that are dealing with a loved one going off to war. Instead of a dull military photo, were everyone has the same look and same uniform on, it's a family photo truly expressing themselves. Laughing, having fun.
I'm a family man. And I used to take my first kid to JC Penny's for photos before I was a photographer. I didn't like the back drops, or the stupid poses. But I loved getting a good quality image of my son! I couldn't afford a photographer. I wish I could have. But bills just got in the way.
I think this is something that will help people in a certain way.
Still not sure what I'll do yet. But I'm in.
