Are you a talented photographer? Can you shoot and edit videos? Do you love telling stories about wildlife, Indigenous culture, and nature through your camera lens? Then come work with us!
We are working on a special brand assets project that will help you take your career to the next level. You will work closely with the program lead and Executive Director to deliver outstanding still images and videos for our ongoing work and future projects. All photographs and videos you produce will be hosted on an online stock photo repository and included in our campaigns to defend nature, facilitate Indigenous resurgence and motivate people to take action. You will be required to travel to and spend time in remote communities and wild spaces to capture compelling photos and videos.
The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society – British Columbia (CPAWS-BC) is part of one of Canada’s oldest non-profit conservation groups. We have been defending lands and waters in BC since 1978 and are dedicated to keeping BC’s natural environment thriving forever. Nature is BC’s best hope.
CPAWS-BC works on the unceded territories of Indigenous Peoples. We recognize that all people have the right to a healthy environment. Identity, culture, and survival are often deeply rooted in people’s connection to the land and ocean. However, not all people have equal access to and decision-making powers over the use of land and ocean. As a conservation organization, we have the responsibility to uphold the values of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion of marginalized voices and perspectives. CPAWS-BC’s hiring practices give priority to Indigenous people and people who face systemic barriers to employment.
