Hi, I'm an amateur photographer and have been participating (volunteering) in a non-profit for a few years without any specific role other than to help improve the visibility of the non-profit through my pictures. I attend their events and chronicle, or build a story through my pictures, and post them to the group's social media pages. Although there are plenty of people taking pictures of these events with their cellphones, I believe I'm responsible for much of the visibility of the group, and believe it's resulted in more people joining the group and existing members to feel like they have a connection with the event even though they may not have been able to attend. I never really wanted to do it for the money, but increasingly feel like I'm not being recognized for the hard work I put into this in the same way the social media person is, for example, or even one of the board members. What role does a photographer typically play within a non-profit? Are they typically part of the marketing team? Perhaps they're just hired on a per-event basis for a fixed rate only? I don't want to make it sound like I'm indispensable, but I volunteered from the beginning, at a time before the group had no members and no money. It's now more than two years later, and I don't feel like I'm getting the recognition for the work I've done. Of course they all still love my work, but I deserve some kind of role within the organization, particularly if I'm doing it for free, like everyone else. Of course I could quit or request to be paid instead, but I'm hoping someone has some ideas on how they've worked with non-profits in the past.
