About Help Portrait

A global movement to give back to those in need

Each December, photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists all around the world will find people in need, take their picture, print their picture and then deliver it—free of charge.

Help-Portrait is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits aren’t for a portfolio, website, or sale. It’s about giving people who otherwise couldn’t afford photography, a chance to capture a moment, a memory…and a whole lot more.

Venue location

Help Portrait Edmonton will take place at Boyle Street Community League.

9538 – 103A Street. Edmonton, AB

How does it work?

Help Portrait is a completely free event.

We'll help you look your best. There will be makeup artists, hair stylists and a wardrobe section to make you look like a rockstar.

Our profesional photographers will direct you on how to pose in one of our studios. Feel like a celebrity and enjoy the ride!

Give us a few minutes after we took your photo, and we'll give you an 8x10 print. We'll even have some frames (quantities limited)

Do you want to help? Volunteer now!

Everyone here is a volunteer, and we can always use a hand. If you are interested in making this event happen, please sign up here.


Have questions? Here are some answers

We would love to see you there. Here are some of the main questions we get.

No. Everyone is welcome to come at any time during 10 am and 5 pm. No need to register.

Yes, you can bring friends and family.The number of prints is limited, but we can give you a few extra photos online.

Absolutely not. Everything at Help Portrait is free. Photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists and a lot of other volunteers are donating their time and talent for you.

The time it takes depends on several factors: the amount of people ahead of you when you arrive, if you are having hair and makeup done, the actual photo session and the print of your portrait. Overall, it can take anywhere from 40 to 90 minutes.
