Giving back

While I have led a very fortunate life, I have had my ups and downs.  Most of us have them.  I believe strongly that we should give back when we can, whatever our gift or talent.

 So I was excited when the opportunity came up to help with http://help-portrait.com/

Help portrait is a simple idea started by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart.  Once a year, the First Saturday in December, photographers get their gear, find people in need, take their portraits and deliver the prints to them a few days later.  It was an incredible experience.  I met some great people and some great photographers who were also using their time and talents to give back to the community.
