Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community. This month every shirt purchased aids Help-Portrait in their mission to provide hope and healing to people in need using the art of photography.
Every December, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered.
This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale.
You have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together.
The mission at Help-Portrait is simply to equip and mobilize the photography community. They want to make sure all photographers have what they need to participate in the global movement on 07 December 2013.

On a small Indonesian Island, a man stumbled upon a small boy standing in the middle of thousands of starfish that had recently been left on shore by a violent storm. He noticed that the boy was frantically trying to get the starfish back into the ocean and asked the boy, "What are you doing - there's too many starfish here, you'll never make a difference." With tears in his eyes the little boy looked at the man, picked up one starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean and said, "I just did."
At FORSIX our name defines our purpose. In today’s global society, we face a list of challenges: civil injustice, disease, poverty, birth defects, educational disparities and unsafe drinking water. We believe that together we can unite 4 these 6 areas of need. Our aim is to take a basic necessity, like clothing, and use it to show friends, family members and people around the world that their needs have not been forgotten.
Graham, John and Hal wanted to build a classic brand that would give them the opportunity to help people. For Six is an apparel company that designs, manufactures and markets its own line of clothing to raise money and awareness for causes that impact our global community. By selling a high quality version of a most basic necessity—clothing—46 provides a fashionable way to be involved with causes that matter.
Born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, Graham's charisma and genuine nature are the result of a strong family background and his true southern upbringing. Graham now resides in New York City, where he concentrates on humanitarian outreach, events and marketing.
A native of Western North Carolina, Hal spends most of his time directing operations and new product development.
John was raised in Greenville, Texas, but has spent most of his life in the western Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina. Now married with three children, John lives in Charleston, South Carolina where he designs and maintains the website, media, and the visuals you see elsewhere.
The FOR SIX Partnership Program is an initiative to expand the 46 brand to organizations interested in creating high-quality, fashionable products that represent their mission. Retail opportunities are also available. Connect with us below for more information.
