Do you know of any photography charities that have sprung up to help the victims of hurricane Sandy? We know of at least one +Help-Portrait happening in Queens to help the affected families in The Rockaways. 

If you know of any other events, please share with us. We've had several photographers reach out to us this week asking how they can help Sandy victims! Thanks!

PS. Here is more information about the Help-Portrait event in Queens, organized by Will Salomon Orellana.

A few photos from one of five +Help-Portrait events that were held in the Bay Area on Dec. 10, 2011. These images are from the event at the St. Vincent de Paul Society — the largest homeless shelter in Northern California.

Because some of the participants were from the Riley Center (a center for battered women and children), we were asked (understandably) not to publish any of the client's portraits. Instead, we have posted some 'behind the scenes' photos to give you an idea of what the Help-Portrait volunteers were doing on that day. CC: +Jeremy Cowart
