On Dec 2, 2018 the Dundas Photography Initiative which meets monthly at the Dundas Museum held a Help Portrait session at the Museum. It involves many volunteers who raise funds from local businesses, provide baked goods and drinks to the less fortunate. The idea behind this world wide event is to take a portrait of an individual, or family and have the image printed and delivered to them free of charge.

Two large studios were constructed with lighting, backgrounds, props, including make-up artists and hair stylists. Each person arriving gets a drink and baked goods, their make-up is done if needed and then sent to the hair stylists before arriving in the studio. This event also allows other members of DPI to use equipment and learn about studio portraiture. Individuals and families are extremely appreciative of the efforts made.

The photographs are sent to a local lab to be printed and then our volunteers deliver the prints directly to their homes in a frame again donated by one of our DPI members. It takes a considerable effort to hold this event and my thanks go out to all the volunteers that help. We also appreciate the Dundas Museum for opening up on a Sunday free of charge for the event and are planning to continue this event in Dec 2019.

Hamilton Portrait and Wedding Photographer | Oz Photography

Starting in 2008  a photographers group out of the U.S. started a world wide phenomenon of taking portrait photographs of people who would not normally be able to afford them during the Christmas season. Mark runs a photography group called the Dundas Photography Initiative out of the Dundas Museum in Dundas, Ontario and this agenda item was up for discussion. We all agreed it was a great way to give back to people and families of the area all for free .

With the help of donations and services from various individuals and businesses we were able to provide make-up and hair styling, take the shots and provide them with free prints. We also had Christmas music, cider and cookies for all. This photo shoot also gave members experience with posing, lighting equipment etc.

The photos were sent out for printing and then delivered to all. It was a great event and we are looking forward to Dec 2017!

     Oz Photography would like to introduce the Williams family. This very friendly family was great to work with we all enjoyed our time together. The forest canopy at the Rock Chapel Sanctuary provided lots of shade for the walk into the area and the photo session.
