As a member of the Amnesty International Australia (AIA) National Photography Network, you’ll use your photography skills to help capture content at AIA activist or staff led events. You’ll work collaboratively with the AIA Multimedia Producer and activists and staff on the ground to capture high quality and professional content that proudly champions the work of our amazing activists and staff in fighting for human rights.
Opportunities in which we’d need your support in content gathering will be ad-hoc and dependent on what activists and staff in your region have planned, so this will be a low-commitment volunteer role in which we’ll be in touch at varied times of the year with content gathering opportunities, while also aiming to give you as much notice as possible.
This is an ideal volunteer role for someone who is either studying photography at a tertiary level or who has had some amateur / semi-professional / professional level photography experience and is looking to volunteer on an ad-hoc basis to help meaningfully capture and communicate the important work that we do in fighting for human rights. We're looking for volunteers based in Western Australia, the Northern Territory, South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania.
As a member of the National Photography Network, some of your main responsibilities will include
Attending some initial training sessions to develop a deeper understanding of Amnesty International Australia’s work and our messaging and branding
Being available to help photograph and capture multi-media content at activist and / or staff led events in your region as identified by the AIA Multimedia Producer
Being available for pre-event briefings with the AIA Multimedia Producer
Delivering captured multimedia content to AIA Multimedia Producer in timely fashion
Have you had experience using professional level photography equipment (for e.g. DSLR/Mirrorless cameras or similar level equipment) and do you currently have access to your own professional level equipment?
