Help Portrait Medellin 2011


This video captures a photo-charity project lead by my buddy Troy Floyd.

Help Portrait Medellín 2011 from Katie Hudson.

The concept is simple: it’s comprised of photographers and volunteers who want to come together and give free professional photographs back to the wonderful Paisa people of Medellín. We hit the streets armed with our camera gear to the barrios around Medellin. We photographed individuals willing to pose, then printed them a copy of the photo that day. We returned to the same location to handed them their very own portrait! A lot of people here have never had a professional photograph taken of themselves and this is a way for photographers, travelers and locals to give back to the community and share the love. The smiles given back in return was our reward… priceless!
