How to Find Local Organizations to Collaborate with for Photography
Play • 26 min

#104: Collaborations can be incredibly fulfilling experiences.

When you find an organization, a nonprofit, a community group, or a foundation that can use the images you create to expand their impact and create positive change — whether that is fundraising, awareness campaigns, or creating action around initiatives — you know your work is having a direct effect on causes you care about. 

Collaborations are also amazing opportunities to learn and grow when you're just getting started in conservation photography, and moving from stand-alone shots to visual storytelling.

They can open up access to interesting stories, build your portfolio, lead to connections for networking, and even provide paid creative work… all while building friendships that last. 

But you may be thinking, “Sounds great, Jaymi, but how do I actually connect with an organization to get started?” 

So that's what this episode is all about. I walk you through:

  • the straightforward steps for searching out organizations local to you
  • how to figure out which orgs you actually want to reach out to
  • and how to have the best first meeting possible so you start off with a foundation of trust
