Volunteer photographer

Why we need you?

SRUK was established just over two years ago after the merging of two previous charities, therefore we are at the very beginning of our journey and we need help building our photo library of our current activities, as a photo really is worth a thousand words.

We're looking for a volunteer photographer to support the charity at events, working to a brief and providing images for a range of media and library use. Volunteers need to have access to their own photography equipment, to be able to produce high resolution images. It would be helpful to have previous experience as a photographer with a portfolio.

What will I be doing?

Your role will be to use the skills you have gained to capture activities and participants at SRUK attended events, so that we can share their experience on social media and our website to inspire others. These events may include but are not limited to sports events, conferences or community events.

You will be working to a brief (supplied by SRUK) photographing people (sports, candid and posed), objects, display stands and presentations, as needed.

You will also need to process and catalogue all images and then use Photoshop to edit photographs e.g. resizing and image retouching as requested.

What skills and attributes do I need?

  • Have experience as a photographer, either professionally or as a hobby.
  • Be able to follow a brief provided to you by SRUK
  • Be able to work independently at events, as it's usually a fast-moving atmosphere with lots going on
  • Have good people skills and be creative and able to take initiative to get the bests shots possible on the day


  • How much time do I need to commit?

    Most of our events take place during the weekend, however there may be circumstances when you will be required to attend events during the week but this will be subject to your availability.

    We would require a commitment of around 4 hours a month.

    What support will I be given?

    You will be given a full brief prior to the event.

    You will have a contact at SRUK who will be there on the day.

    You will receive an induction plus additional training as required.

    Where will I be based?

    You will be attending a variety of events along with a member of the SRUK team.

    Additional information

    Lunch and refreshments will be provided if appropriate.

    Travel expenses will be covered, in line with SRUK's expenses policy.

    Volunteers must be able to demonstrate their work as part of the application process.

    Please be aware that if you are successful you must be able to provide two references and may require a DBS check.
