VIDA (Volunteers in Defense of Animals)

We are looking to add more photographers to our team! Ideally, we'd like to find 1-3 photographers who are able to come in on a fairly regular basis because we often get new dogs and cats every week. The best days to come are Sunday, Monday, or Thursday, but any day of the week will work! If you can come once a week, that would be absolutely perfect.

The best times will depend on the lighting / season, but we are almost always available from 10 AM - 4 PM.

What you need: All photographers who'd like to apply need to own a DSLR camera or any professional camera, have some previous experience in photography, and have some type of photo editing software (doesn't have to be super expensive, but something like Photoshop would be very helpful!).

All accessories (bandanas, collars, leashes) will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own props. When you come to the shelter, we will have people help you get the dogs who need photos, but once you develop more experience & feel comfortable, we welcome you to come in and take pictures and take the dogs out on your own. The pictures are always shot either within the shelter's vicinity or on the sidewalks nearby. Pictures for the cats are always taken in the cat room!

Creative Shoots: If you are a freelance photographer or would like to build a portfolio or just create some creative content, we welcome photographers who are looking for a creative outlet! If you have any ideas for photoshoots, we can make it happen! Unfortunately, we don't always have a budget to set aside for purchasing props, but if you'd like to do this, we can maybe work something out. Shoots are not limited to simple backgrounds - you can experiment based on holidays, themes, etc. !

Posting on Social Media: All photography will belong to you, but we may use it for many different uses such as adding the photos to our brochures & website! We will always cite who the photographer is, especially if we post on social media. You can find our Instagram @vidarescue and Facebook is
