Photography

Human Services

This project will save us $5,048 , allowing us to use those funds to purchase other materials to increase awareness.

What We Need

  • A photographer who will work with the Organization over 1-2 days to capture an important event or shoot a series of photographs to tell the Organization's story
  • A set of professionally edited, high-resolution images delivered in JPEG or TIFF format suitable for web or print use
  • Note: The photographer needs to be available in the same geographical location as the Organization or be willing to travel at own expense

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on reaching our target demographic. Without your help, we cannot reach our targeted demographic/target audience. Your skills will empower us to showcase our programs and give the community a visual.

We currently have 14 employees which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have 5 or more volunteers and the ability to provide any other information you need.
