2019 Help-Portrait Preview/Thank You


We received feedback from our volunteers that:

1) Some volunteers get to see some of the pictures being taken

2) Some volunteers get to see the final prints while we put the packets together

But, not many volunteers get to see the final results of all their time and effort.

So……… we are going to do a presentation for all volunteers highlighting this past year's event :

  • Sunday, March 29th
  • 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
  • Beems Auditorium A
  • Downtown Cedar Rapids Library

Join us!   See the smiles your contributions helped produce as we celebrate another great and successful Greater Cedar Rapids Help-Portrait event.

If you have friends/family who might be thinking of helping at the 2020 event, bring them along.   Let's show them what they have missed.

We will also be announcing a big change to the 2020 event date!

  1. Great Idea. I think too it would be helpful for those of us who don’t normally do portraits to have a work session several weeks or months prior to the event to give beginners a chance to try it out. See what it takes and if they want to volunteer. I had one session some time ago that was pre set up with models and someone else speed-flash (not sure I got the term correct) system hooked to my camera just so I could experience what it was like for a few clicks to do a shoot. I have since purchased a basic system but have not pulled it out or played with it yet. ___Lew
