Founded in 2009 by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a growing group of photographers across the world who join forces once a year to give back to less fortunate members of their local communities . In a recent article on CNN, they described  it as “Photographers to ‘give,’ not ‘take’ portraits
