We at Global Humanitarian Photojournalistslisten carefully to photographers and multimedia producer and who are providing photos and visual elements in order to ensure they will be happy with the results and be able to make practical use of the photos you take.

Why Photojournalists Volunteer?

Millions of people in this world lack basic necessities of life; homes, foods, education but the world is unaware of their hardships. With your skills, you can help them by telling their stories through your photographs as many homeless people may not care to have their picture taken. Unfortunately, there are needy and helpless people present almost everywhere, and bringing their situations into public attention through some dramatic shots is a great way for photographers. As a volunteer photojournalist, you can document poverty without humiliating the poor.

Many charitable organizations and NGOs in the world need impactful and visual elements to tell stories of those in needy for fundraising, and increase public awareness. Some NGOs cannot afford to do this due to financial limitations and lack of talented professional photojournalists and storytellers. You can help them as a volunteer photojournalist by clicking for them some impactful shots. Contact our office and tell us about an important organization in your area then, we will assign you to bring their story to light.

The famous Chinese proverb, "one picture is worth thousand words" certainly holds true as a single click helps to brings a massive change in a meaningful manner. Your time as a volunteer photojournalist can benefit many unfortunate and in return giving you a worthy experience of a great visual journalist.
