Local Photographers Taking Part In "National Day Of Photography"


Four local photographers are using their gifts to give back to the Colorado Springs community on December 3.

The photographers will take pictures of clients of various Catholic charities and Ecumenical Social Ministries in the community, allowing people who normally would be unable to afford professional photography the chance to have a family or individual portrait taken. The photography sessions will be free to the client.

The photographers are taking part in a worldwide program called Help-Portrait, which invites photographers to use their skills for altruistic purposes. December 4 has been declared “National Day of Photography,” in which photographers will try to help people in need with the gift of photography. For scheduling purposes, Colorado Springs is participating on December 3.

Portraits will be taken from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the First Presbyterian Weber Street Center on 105 N. Weber St. Individuals can come between 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for walk-in sessions, while families need to schedule ahead. Family appointments are from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sign-up sheets are available at the Marian House, in both the family dining room and in Life Support Services.
