Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers, coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.
On December 4th, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered.
Yep. It really is that easy.
And by the way, we don’t want to see your photos. This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This holiday season, you have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together.
Our mission? Our mission at Help-Portrait is simply to equip and mobilize you, the photography community. We want to make sure you have all the information that you need to successful participate in Help-Portrait on 04 December 2010. We want to help you find other people in your area that are wanting to be part of Help-Portrait or have already begun to plan the event. We want you to have the opportunity to give.
Saturday Dec. 4th

TEXAS BALLET THEATER/ THE NUTCRACKER
Bring in the Holiday season with Ben Stevenson’s critically acclaimed production of The Nutcracker. This beloved ballet tells the story of Clara and her magical Nutcracker Prince as they embark on a thrilling adventure. Along the way, they encounter a Christmas tree that grows to 40 feet, toy soldiers battling mischievous mice, waltzing flowers, dancing candy, and sparkling, swirling snowflakes that fall on dancers and the audience alike. Stunning costumes, dazzling sets and remarkable dancing to holiday music by Tchaikovsky make The Nutcracker a favorite family tradition.
There are performances in both Dallas and Fort Worth. Dallas dates at the Winspear Opera House include Dec. 3-5. Fort Worth dates at Bass Performance Hall include Dec. 10-12, 16-19, 22-24.
BRAD MELTZER/ “DECODED”
Best-selling author Brad Meltzer loves a good mystery and is a history enthusiast known for his immaculate research; he has studied and written about some of America’s most revered institutions and documents. But sometimes, he uncovers unverifiable stories that keep him awake at night. Is there another hidden message buried in the Statue of Liberty? What happened to the White House cornerstone that’s been missing for two centuries? Could it be true that John Wilkes Booth lived for 40 years after his presumed death under an assumed identity? In the new 10-part History® series BRAD MELTZER’S DECODED, the acclaimed author scours secret clues, symbols and conspiracy theories to unravel some of society’s most provocative enigmas. And the deeper he digs into the past, the more we learn about our future. Meltzer is joined by a crack team of investigators to hunt for answers to questions that have perplexed us for centuries yet have never been fully uncovered.
Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Fate and six other novels. His first non-fiction work Heroes For My Son, a collection of historical heroes, recently hit the New York Times bestseller list. Meltzer is also author of the critically acclaimed comic books Identity Crisis and Justice League of America and is the first author to ever reach the #1 spot on both the New York Times and the Diamond comic book bestseller lists simultaneously.
