About the Position
Position: 2904 - Volunteer City Photographer > ACTIVE during COVID-19
Organization: Heart Comonos
Position Address: Cooksville, Mississauga, ON, Canada and from the volunteer's residence
Location: Mississauga, Virtual

Goal

Heart Comonos (from the Latin 'Together as one') is well on the way to become a community cultural hub near the downtown core of Mississauga, located in the Cooksville neighbourhood [ SEE our Facebook 'link' in Social Media, and the Map, below ]. Currently, we continue to initiate numerous community engagement projects with the aim of creating connections among citizens, organizations, and associations. Our approach is generally known as ‘Asset-Based Community Development’ with an emphasis on people who may not be as engaged with their community as they ought to be (eg. isolated seniors, residents facing the hardships of COVID-19, the less fortunate, disadvantaged, and vulnerable).

Our Volunteer City Photographer ideally is a local resident who will take photos locally in Cooksville (Mississauga). We are in immediate need of images principally for our website and we are looking for someone who can capture the essence of the neighbourhood by taking photos that feature the area, plus visually establish it as a landmark.


Description

Our Volunteer City Photographer is responsible for taking a gallery of interesting, visually informative photos of the neighbourhood, on an ongoing basis. The images ideally will be of professional quality, and they should be captivating within the Heart Comonos website, so as to immediately attract and 'keep' the public in terms of access to the website (and other 'social media' platforms).

Bonus if you know how to use a drone camera, as that would be fantastic but not required. We really would like to capture the grassroots nature of our work by authentically capturing the neighbourhood. It's important to us that we showcase the diversity and beauty of Cooksville and its inhabitants, residential, commercial, and cultural.
