The Portraits of Love Project—a joint effort put on by the PhotoImaging Manufacturers and Distributors Association and Soldiers’ Angels, a non-profit group—has put out a call for photographers nationwide who are willing to volunteer their time to shoot family-portraits for deployed military personnel. The portraits will be delivered in time for the holidays to those in active duty. PMDA’s goal is to deliver at least 10,000 portraits.

The holidays can often be difficult for the deployed and their families back home—this project offers a chance for photographers to help make this holiday season a little easier for both.

Last year, more than 400 photographers shared their time and talents to make the project a resounding success and this year PDMA would like to get even more people involved.

PDMA is specifically looking for studio photographers who have experience taking family portraits. Anyone interested can sign up HERE. Also, individuals with family members in active duty can sign up on the same site for a time slot to have their portrait taken.

Bonnier Corporation, the parent company of Popular Photography Magazine and PopPhoto.com, is a sponsor of the Portraits of Love Project.
