Purpose: Visual Story Tellers assist the Red Cross in delivering its mission by taking and sharing photos and/or video to showcase the Red Cross at work, both in disaster and non-disaster time

Key Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with Communications Leadership to identify and carry out ways to tell the Red Cross story visually
  • Take photos and/or video at events, trainings, and disasters in accordance with Red Cross brand standards
  • Capture portraits, candids and/or studio shots to tell the Red Cross story of service delivery
  • Cull, edit, caption and upload your photos/video to online sharing accounts; share select photos in a timely manner (typically same day or within 24 hours) with chapter/regional communications leadership and the social media team
  • Share photos/video on social media, when appropriate
  • Coordinate with chapter social media leads to share your team's videos and photos on social media or Red Cross sites.
  • Treat all clients, volunteers, and partners with dignity and respect - always obtaining required photo releases.
  • Organize and deliver photo/video documentation, captions, quotes and photo releases.

During Disasters:

  • Work with communications team to identify daily priorities to share a visual story.
  • Deploy to the scene to seek out opportunities for photos/videos

NOTE: Photographers and Videographers must have their own equipment and editing software. Portfolios will be requested during the interview. Links to digital portfolios are acceptable.

We would love to discuss we can work together to better serve our communities before, during and after disasters!

The American Red Cross wants to get better acquainted during blue skies so that when blue skies turn grey, we are no longer strangers but colleagues working to serve our communities together.

Thank you for your support during this unprecedented time.

In Mission,
