Project Details

What We Need

  • 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
Additional Details

We would like a photographer to capture editorial style photos of our classrooms in action. Photos will be used for general marketing purposes on social media, brochures, ads, and our website as well as displayed in our schools.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have signed media releases, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have sample photos from past projects, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

This project is important because it will help celebrate the magic that happens in the classroom with our amazing teachers and students and tell the story of KIPP NJ.
