CMC students organize free portraits for families in need

The faculty, staff and students of the professional photography program at Colorado Mountain College will be at the First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, to provide free portraits as part of the international Help-Portrait movement.

Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers using their time, tools and expertise to give back to those in need. Multiple portrait studios will be set up at the church, and portraits will be printed and delivered that night. Digital files of your portraits will also be available if you bring a portable USB flash drive to the event. This is a charity event, and there is absolutely no cost for the portraits.

This is the sixth year the college’s professional photography program has participated in Help-Portrait, bringing hundreds of free portraits to the communities of the Roaring Fork Valley. Translators will be on site to assist Spanish speakers with portrait sessions. For more information on Help-Portrait go to: http://help-portrait.com.



For more information on this event contact Derek Johnston, program director and professor of professional photography, Isaacson School for New Media at Colorado Mountain College, at djohnston@coloradomtn.edu or 970-947-8151. The First United Methodist Church is located at 824 Cooper Ave. in Glenwood Springs.
