Typography Portraits

This project could work in Illustrator or Photoshop.
In Illustrator---making type brushes (Art brushes)to paint over a photo:
File>Place the reference photo (check link and template in Place)
Make a line of type and go to Type>Create Outlines and then select the Type. Open Brushes panel from Window and click on the pop-out menu at the top right of the panel and choose "New Brush"
Make the type an Art Brush. Choose the brush tool and paint over the photo (you should have an empty layer above the template layer.
The big challenge is keeping the reference photo in the same location or go to Window>Links and embed it so it is there when the file is opened/closed.
