From Charity Guide: “As a volunteer photojournalist, it’s best to make arrangements with one or more charities before you leave on your vacation so you will have an idea of the types of photographs they may need, where their projects or events are taking place, and if the charity provides any type of accommodations or supplies.
- One World Photography, which assists about two dozen international nonprofit organizations, offers opportunities for volunteer photojournalists to document social and environmental issues that are often ignored around the world. If you’re taking pictures in a foreign country, you might want to learn how to say “smile” in the native language!
- Both the National Parks Service and the US Fish and Wildlife Service need volunteer photojournalists to help them monitor and record natural and cultural treasures across the United States.
- Idealist.org provides a directory of volunteer opportunities for photographers, ranging from local projects to international volunteer vacations.”
