The photographer would be charged with collecting still photography of the 8th Annual TAPS National Military Suicide Survivor Seminar. Photos that are hi-res, magazine and brochure quality would be ideal, as these photos will be used in TAPS marketing material for future events and publication. Additionally, if you're a videographer, we'd request that you're able to record enough coverate for 8 (eight) separate 1-3 minute videos that can be shown during the conclusion of the event.
Specific Dates/Times will be provided upon inquiry and interest. The event is from September 30th through October 2nd, and each day has very specific requirements that will be shared with the photographer and/or videographer upon approval of that photographer assisting.

These photos would also be provided to the families who were participating, in addition to social media (Twitter and Facebook).
We would of course provide the appropriate photo credit, and work with the photographer to meet their needs and expectations.
Video recorded would need to be edited and created for presentation by 4PM on October 2nd for the closing ceremony. Capturing video would take place between September 30th and October 1st. So this portion is a bit more time sensitive in nature.
