NYC: Product Photography for Under-Resourced Small Businesses

Save to Favorites


Photography Volunteer Flyer

Under-resourced small business owners are in need of high-resolution images of their products including food and retail products. The images are crucial for the businesses to have on their websites and social media pages.

Start Small Think Big is seeking enthusiastic and reliable photographers who are interested in volunteering their skills to help underserved small business entrepreneurs build and sustain their thriving businesses. You must have a passion for all aspects of photography, but an individual with a specific interest in food and product photography would be ideal.

There are two ways to volunteer within Start Small Think Big:

  1. One Day Engagement (known as Clinics): Coordinate a "Volunteer Day" where we book a group of clients according to a schedule that you select in advance for one-hour product photos, or 30-minute headshots.
  2. Project-based Engagement: Connect one-on-one with an entrepreneur to capture high-resolution photographs for their business. Our one-on-one engagements are project-based and limited in scope (meaning that after the project is completed, volunteers can choose another client or project to work on), though some volunteers develop an ongoing relationship with the client.

Interested in hearing more or if you are a good fit? Fill out our volunteer application: bit.ly/startsmallthinkbig, by selecting the "Market Access/ Marketing" program. Someone will get in touch with you to schedule an orientation call. Within the volunteer application, provide us with a link to your portfolio or examples of your work so that we can get a sense of your work. Please only apply if you have at least 3 years of professional experience.

We look forward to working with you!
