Finding at least one local non-profit partner is essential to pulling off a good medium to large event. The main reason is simply because these organizations have established relationships with the people you seek to take portraits of and they’re in regular communication with them. This is a huge benefit when it comes to promoting your event and ensuring that people show up for it.
Here’s a list of where we’ve been most “successful” in serving large groups of people:
- Rescue mission
- Womens health
- Halfway houses
- Recovery programs < this is very unique experience because so many of them deal with poor self-image issues
- Food kitchens
- Homeless organizations/ministries
