UPDATE: NGO Seeks Photographer to Document Work in India, Senegal, Mali, & Guatemala
Thank you, Lightstalkers, for your tremendous response to our search for the right photographer. What an active—and clearly quite talented—community. I have locked this post prior to the aforementioned deadline of April 15 so that we can carefully review your statements of interest, experience, and portfolios. Thanks again to all. Hope to be in touch individually with some of you in the next few business days. -Lindsey Graham
Request for Bids: Photographer
Background: IntraHealth International is a not-for-profit health care development organization based in Chapel Hill with field offices worldwide. Its mission is to mobilize local talent to create sustainable and accessible health care in developing countries. Founded in 1979 as Intrah, a program of the University of North Carolinaâ€™s School of Medicine specializing in training health providers, IntraHealth became an independent nonprofit in July 2003 and has since grown exponentially to include over 600 staff working in 36 countries. However, the organization experiences an ongoing deficit of visual mediaâ€”photographic and video footageâ€”to illustrate its work and impact in Latin America, West Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia. Thus, IntraHealth is seeking a photographer to capture the organizationâ€™s mission and geographic diversity of work through a series of trips to Asia, West Africa, and Latin America.
Services to be Rendered: Three photo shootsâ€”in India, Mali and Senegal, and Guatemalaâ€”targeting key programs and countries not adequately represented in our current archive. The photographer will be accompanied by staff from IntraHealthâ€™s communications team and respective country office. Each trip will last approximately 7 days. All travel must be completed, and expense reports submitted, by June 15, 2009.
Deliverables: Raw images from each location must be delivered to IntraHealth by June 15, 2009. Thereafter, the photographer may negotiate adequate time for post-production editing/retouching of an agreed upon number of images per country.
If interested, please reply to this post with your daily rate; availability during the period April 15-June 15; links to or samples of relevant work from the past; and any further considerations that might affect your work. A decision will be made by April 30, 2009.
