Hey guys. Â I haven’t managed to post in a while, but I have a LOT of content to put up eventually. Â My photo editing machine died, and I haven’t been able to get my HDD replaced quickly enough – but I will get back here to keep putting work up.
I just wanted to take the opportunity to let you guys in on something that I am proud to be a part of this year. Â I love portraits. Â People love portraits – they mean something. Â They aren’t just a click of a shutter and a flash of light, they are a moment. Â They are a moment between the photographer and the subject. Â A moment within the subject. Â A Â moment that the subject has shared with the photographer. Â This year, I’m proud to be involved with Help Portrait.
I first heard about HP when news of it spread through the interwebs. Â Some of my favourite photographers and bloggers were involved. Â The idea – take some selfless, non-portfolio-building images of someone who willÂ appreciateÂ it. Â Let them have a moment they otherwise might miss out on. Â Make them feel beautiful; special; interesting; desirable; sexy; funny; admirable; worthy. Â This year, Brisbane HP is collaborating with Lifeline, Red Cross and the Wesley Mission, to make a few hundred portraits of some special people. Â After giving them the chance to get dolled up with hair and makeup – we will be taking some images, retouching them on site, and providing them with a gorgeous image as they leave. Â Everyone involved is donating their time, experiences, resources, space, skills and energy – to make someone else feel special.
If you are at all interested in helping us out, we are taking donations to cover printing/cleaning/paper/random expenses. Â Follow this links here, to help us help others. Â It would be greatly appreciated.
