As part of The Pixel Project’s collaboration with photographers for “Portraits for Pixels”, we encourage photographers to not only donate a minimum of US$10 per portrait session to our campaign but – if they can afford to do so – to also donate some of the remaining proceeds from the portrait sessions to the local VAW nonprofit/charity of their choice such as their area’s battered women’s shelter, or rape crisis centre.
Here is the 2012 list of local VAW nonprofits that participating photographers have chosen to benefit alongside The Pixel Project’s Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal campaign through their “Portraits for Pixels” sessions.
Please check back often for an updated list… and if you live in any of these areas, be sure to book your portrait appointment with the “Portraits for Pixels” photographer there.
