Volunteer Photographer

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) have an exciting opportunity for volunteer photographers.

We are currently seeking enthusiastic volunteers with photographic experience to attend various events and stations within the county, to capture images that can be used for our website, in-house publications and intranet, as well as social media accounts and shared with media organisations where appropriate. 

As a busy fire service we have lots of events taking place across the county and we are looking for volunteers to support us by creating interesting images that reflect the scope of the organisation.

Volunteers will need to have access to their own photography equipment, to be able to produce high resolution digital images and be able to show evidence of their photographic skills. It would be advantageous to have a full driving licence and access to a car.

As an RBFRS Volunteer Photographer you may be asked to attend events such as:

  • Firefighter training days
  • Fire station open days
  • Celebration events and ceremonies
  • Community events
  • Station visits

These will be subject to your availability and preferences that will be discussed at an informal interview.

You will receive a uniform, RBFRS ID and training relevant to your role. RBFRS will reimburse reasonable out of pocket expenses. 

RBFRS volunteers are required to take a DBS check.

Please note that any photography undertaken as part of this role will require copyright to remain with RBFRS.

Please note, if invited to an interview, we would like to see a portfolio with examples of your photography.
