About

Teens For Food Justice is an afterschool program that engages middle school and high school students in hands-on farming, nutrition education and community-based food justice advocacy. We’re seeking an experienced photographer to help us capture high-quality photos of our program at work and the community we serve. Photographing our program is a fun opportunity to check out some cutting edge indoor farming technology and interact with a bright, enthusiastic group of students!

We have a great new cohort of students, and we are in need of more high quality photos of students harvesting food and engaging in various activities on the farm. We are also interested in a micro-project that includes a Humans of New York-esque approach to highlighting the amazing youth and adults in our community.

To learn more about us, visit Teensforfoodjustice.org.

Dates/Times: We’re looking for someone who is available to come in a couple of times per month to capture different aspects of our program. We are flexible and able to work around your schedule.

Our program, which is ongoing throughout the school year, runs from 4 - 5:30pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, and from 2:30 - 4pm on Fridays. Our community events will take place on weeknight early evenings.

Requirements :

  • Prior photography experience and your own, high quality camera

  • A linkable portfolio with up-to-date examples of your work

  • Comfort working around and interacting with children (6th - 8th graders)

If you’re interested in joining us or would like to learn more, please email Joshua Serrano at jserrano@teensforfoodjustice.org with a brief description of your availability and a link to your portfolio. We look forward to hearing from you!
