Our center in South African provides children and unemployed men and women with opportunities to transform their lives through programs in literacy, health, the arts, and economic development.

About

Art Aids Art seeks an experienced photographer interested in having a meaningful impact on a small, fast growing nonprofit organization. Art Aids Art promotes education, wellbeing and sustainable economic development, working primarily with South African women and children impacted by poverty and/or HIV/AIDS. We are the FIRST American organization to open an art and education center in South Africa's second largest township, Khayelitsha. To create income for formerly-unemployed women living in shanty towns, we sell their handcrafted art online, and are poised to begin a wholesale project to increase the project's impact. This requires photographing and editing photos of their work to post on our online store and in our wholesale catalog. We are looking for someone to shoot photos, preferably in a studio space. If this is not possible, the alternative would be to have the capacity to set up a white space with lighting in order to achieve a uniform, professional look. Experience and keen attention to detail are preferred. The ability to batch-edit is a plus (saves time). This can be a one-time opportunity or ongoing. However, we would very much like to work with someone on a long term basis, if possible. This is an unpaid voluntary position, but the reward of changing lives is South Africa is powerful...and the handmade items you will be shooting are very cool!
