Photographs are important when you’re putting together employer marketing brochures, success stories, social media posts or other types of communication.
Keep that in mind when you visit employers and clients at their workplaces. It’s much easier to collect photos in the moment than scrambling at the last minute. For digital images, a smart phone delivers great quality and can also work for print media if you have a steady hand.
Remember to ask permission (in advance, if possible). Be sensitive to cultural norms around photography. Follow any photo release policy your agency might have.
Higher has found a couple of great free resources for generating images for all kinds of communication purposes and wanted to share them with you.
- Beth Kantor is a well-known blogger about how nonprofits can use social media. Here is a link to her great list of sources for free or low cost stock images.
- https://www,picmonkey.com/# is another free resource that allows you to generate photo collages in a number of pre-designed layouts using your own uploaded photographs.
You have definitely seen examples of the results of using both of these sites – and our own photographs – in Higher social media communications. The image that accompanies this post is a picmonkey.com collage of free images we’ve created or found on the sites listed in the link.
