Waynesboro photographer Kevin Blackburn is launching a local Help-Portrait effort aimed at helping low-income families get holiday portraits taken free of charge.

“Help-Portrait is a collection of photographers around the world using their time, equipment, and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate. What does that look like? It looks like photographers taking pictures. And then giving those pictures back to the families,” Blackburn said.

None of the photographers or volunteers involved are being paid or making money off these photographs. None of the pictures taken will be used on personal websites or portfolios. The goal is simply to find people in need and take their picture in order to give the picture back, Blackburn said.
