This project will save us $5,048 , allowing us to to spend more money on creating great trainings for educators and educational content for teens!

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

Answer is a leader in the field of sexual and reproductive health, and how we present ourselves to the public--through our website and social media--is of the utmost importance. This requires great headshots of our dedicated staff and a few group shots that give donors and educators a feel for the people behind the great work we do. If you can provide professional headshots and a few group shots of the staff that reflect our staff's professionalism and passion, that would help us promote our work and reach even more educators and young people with our services.

What We Have In Place

We have a couple of options for shoot locations: either in our offices or outside.

Fun Fact

We have an amazing staff of teenagers who write content for our sexual health magazine, Sex, Etc. Check it out at Sexetc org! We have photos of them. You would be photographing the adults who work on our staff.
