CMC students organize free professional portraits for the holidays

 The faculty, staff and students of the professional photography program at Colorado Mountain College will be at the First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs on Wednesday, Nov. 29, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. to provide free portraits as part of the international Help-Portrait movement.

Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers using their time, tools and expertise to give back to their communities. Multiple portrait studios will be set up at the church, and portraits will be printed and delivered that night. This is a charity event and there is absolutely no cost for the portraits.
