Looking for help with Help-Portrait

Since 2009, Record Photographer Clifford Oto has organized an annual help-portrait event in Stockton to take portraits of those in need.

People who cannot afford to have this done themselves, including some who have never had a formal portrait taken. This year, he is looking for volunteers to help for a few hours on Sat. Dec.2. He needs photogs, helpers, hair and makeup people and so on.
