Giving Thanks, Giving Back

I am not an overly sentimental guy, but I give thanks for what I’ve been given every day. My family, my friends, my career and, for more than 20 years, my passion for storytelling through visuals.

My friend Sean Elliot posted a link to the Help Portrait site yesterday and it has me thinking – and wanting to give back a little. Help Portrait is an effort to have photographers – pros and hobbyists, anyone with a camera – shoot a portrait of someone in need – any need – and make them a print. It’s not about you, your portfolio or your career – it’s about using your gift, your talent, your vision, to make someone else’s day a little better.

I’m in, are you? Because I know I have a lot to give thanks for.
