Great North Run 2017 Photographer
Volunteer Photographer required with Shelter at the Great North Run 2017
7 September 2017
Event: Great North Run
Date: Sunday 10th September 2017
Times: 10am – 2pm
Locations: Newcastle City Centre mile 8 of route OR Great North Run charity village, South Shields
We are looking for a volunteer photographer to take some snaps of our fantastic runners as they speed through Newcastle City Centre at the Great North Run.
We have 100 people taking part in the Great North Run this year and we want to make sure we capture the spirit of the day in photographs for them. As well as creating some photographic memories for the runners, we'll also use photos from the day to market the event for next year, and will be publishing photos on our website and Facebook page as well as on posters and flyers, so it is a great opportunity for a budding photographer to develop their portfolio.
We'll have a cheer point set up at mile 8 of the route for the morning, so we'll need you to take photos of runners as they go past and we'll also have a marquee in the race village at the end in South Shields, where we'll take the all- important finisher photos. You will be positioned at one or the other. (if you have a preference, please let me know)
You'll need to have your own camera and preferably some experience of professional photography, but we welcome enquiries from everyone.
If interested, please contact email@example.com
