    Hey everyone, Jeremy Cowart here. A little over 2 years ago, I launched an idea here on Scott’s blog called Help-Portrait. I had no idea if it would fly or not. But it was worth a shot. 3 years later, photographers around the world have embraced the idea and have reached out to their communities and made a massive impact in helping and serving others.

    And with the growth and success of this idea, I’ve had to grow the Help-Portrait team to continue making it all happen. People seem to think that it’s just me running this organization, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There is a truly remarkable, selfless, all-star team of people around me that are helping make Help-Portrait happen. They are working year-round on making Help-Portrait a success and I’m constantly inspired by them. So I wanted to take this opportunity for you to get to know them a little bit and see why they’re so awesome.

    So without further ado and in no particular order, let me introduce you to my Help-Portrait team!


    Name and your job title/role for Help-Portrait:
    Kyle Chowning – Executive Director + Board member – Oversee the overall planning, development and execution of the Help-Portrait operations

    What’s your favorite moment from your Help-Portrait experiences so far?
    My favorite moment was the first year, when we worked tirelessly to pull off the very first Help-Portrait. I remember stepping back and watching hundreds of people come through our event getting their picture taken—often for the first time in a very long time, or ever, and seeing the smiles on their faces. They were so appreciative. Truth is, they were doing more for me that I was doing for them. Easily one of the most memorable days in my life to-date.

    Why do you believe so much in Help-Portrait?
    Not being a photographer myself, I believe in Help-Portrait not because of what it does for the photography industry, but for the subjects: women who never felt beautiful, knew they were beautiful; homeless people who were typically avoided, engaged and became rock stars, even if just for a moment; lack of confidence turned into confidence; shame turned into pride; rejection turned into acceptance; sadness turned into excitement; hopelessness turned into the promise of something new; unemployed and homeless now had a professional portrait to share with prospect employers; the list could go on and on. All of this happened with a simple click and a print. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that story?

    Why should others get involved with Help-Portrait?
    If you’re a photographer…

    Hi Gang: I got invited to shoot the Atlanta Falcons game on Sunday so I shot up to the Georgia Dome for the 1:00 pm game on Sunday and was back the same night, so it was kind of a whirlwind trip, but I really had a ball! (no pun intended). [NOTE: Click on the photos for a larger view----they look much better bigger. Well, except the iPhone photos. Kidding]. (Above: Here's my remote rig in an iPhone photo. It's not fully aimed yet, because they roll this rig out onto the corner of the field about 10 minutes before the players are announced).  The very cool Mike Benford from the Falcons organization arranged it so I would be able set up a remote camera rig and attach it to the truss archway that the players run through when they enter the field, and…

    It's our biggest sale day of the year at Kelby Training, and I looked at some of the deals offered TODAY ONLY, and even I was like, "What???!!!!!"

    This has been one of the most frustrating things for us ever. We launch "Light It," this kick-butt new magazine. We get over-the-top incredible feedback from it, and people can't wait to get issue #2, which is really exciting for us. Issue #2 was already complete when we launched issue #1, so we wanted to launch it pretty soon after the first issue. However, there was something we didn't count on.... ...Apple's App Store has turned down our App FOUR TIMES IN A ROW now. When they turn down your App, they send you an email why, then you have to go try and fix the problems (ours were related to IOS 5.0, and then our in-app purchasing, and then a memory issue, and then a testing issue, and so on). Then you have to (wait for it....wait for it....) resubmit the App all…

    Here's an iPhone pic of my buddy Corey Barker, who is currently vying for the title of "happiest guy in the world" because he got his first copy, of his first book, "Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers." Corey had been such a big help to me when I did my own"Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks" book a couple of years back, that I talked him into doing his own version of the book, and as much as I hate to admit it, his came out even better than mine. I think Corey is, hands down, one of the most gifted Photoshop artists/trainers out there, and he teaches stuff in this new book that you just don't see anywhere else. I don't know how he comes up with this stuff, but man does he ever! I'll run a video clip he did about…
