A youth-led photography initiative to support important community needs
Raised for the community
At The Community Photobooth, we believe in the power of youth and photography to enact positive change. Our nationally recognized collective of young photographers leverages their talents to support vital causes and improve their communities. Each year, our month-long Photoshoot-Fundraiser generates funds that directly benefit diverse needs, from wildfire prevention to youth mental health. We're also committed to empowering young people through our Photobooths program, which provides training and opportunities for emerging photographers to build sustainable careers. By booking a photoshoot with one of our talented youth photographers, you're not just capturing special moments; you're investing in a future where photography is a force for good. Join us today in using photography for philanthropy.
