Who We Are and What We Do
Photo Start is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation whose mission is focused on teaching life skills through photography to young children in distressed areas.
Students learn soft and hard skills through photography to foster positive change, and to improve economic opportunity in the increasingly global community.
By imbuing the most distressed children with marketable skills, and creating a self-perpetuating cycle of instruction, we help improve the long term prospects of all members of the Photo Start family.
Photo Start is Childhood Education. We focus on helping children in impoverished areas, particularly those most at risk to be left behind. Four out of five children from these areas will spend part of, or all of, any given month on the streets instead of in a classroom. It is our goal to fight this alarming trend, and keep these children safe from street gangs and terrorists by providing education and mentorship.
Photo Start is a platform connecting the most at risk children with modern opportunity. Children develop technical and creative skills, and learn creative ways to use those skills. We facilitate access to industry professionals, mentors, field trips to heritage sites and other unique experiences otherwise unavailable.
One of our goals is to ensure that the most vulnerable and at-risk children are safe and are obtaining skills needed to succeed in the world. With your generous cash and in-kind donations, you have the capacity to help us in our endeavor of serving our children.

One of the main reasons Photo Start was founded was to compensate for the struggles of children without access to practical educational and economic opportunities. We’ve dedicated countless man-hours, and invested innumerable resources, to pursue this charitable cause.
We hope you’ll help us continue this work.
