Volunteer Role
Become a Habitat Chicago Photographer

    Are you a skilled photographer with a desire to give back to the local Chicago community? Have you always wanted a reason to wear a hard hat and capture people hard at work? If so, put your talent to good work photographing Habitat Chicago events, families, and volunteers. We are looking for talented photographers to volunteer at our build sites in West Pullman and Greater Grand Crossing, at the ReStore in North Park, and to photograph some of our events that happen all throughout Chicago. 

    1100 W Cermak Rd, Chicago IL 60608
    • HFHC photographers can help our team in a variety of ways and with a variety of schedules. Photograph our events! These can range from spending a day (10am-3pm) on our build site taking candid and group shots of our volunteers to attending our Annual Benefit and again, capturing both candid and group shots.
    • Photograph our ReStore volunteers! The ReStore is on the lookout for a few skilled photographers to capture some of the amazing work our volunteers are doing. 
    • Photograph our build site! Our construction team is on the lookout for volunteer photographers to capture the work happening on our build sites. These photographs may be used in future instructional material.
    • Photograph our build site volunteers! We’d love to have a skilled photographer on site to capture the amazing work of our volunteers as they help build Habitat Chicago homes.
    • Photograph our Habitat Chicago homes to show the ongoing process of construction and demonstrate the details that go into building a home from start to finish. All photos may be used in future marketing materials.
