Volunteer Photographer Program

LAFD Launches Volunteer Photographer Program
The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) is pleased to announce the establishment of a Volunteer Photographer Program (VPP) that will provide Angelenos an opportunity to interact with the LAFD in new and exciting ways.
Recently approved by the Board of Fire Commissioners, the VPP will allow a cadre of up to 50 local photographers to assist the LAFD in photographing non-emergency Department events such as graduations, promotional ceremonies and other unique occasions. Photographers who successfully complete four events qualify for a ride along with the LAFD.
“The Volunteer Photographer Program is a wonderful way for members of the Greater Los Angeles Community to get acquainted with the LAFD and bring their photography skills to showcase the Department,” said LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas.
The LAFD is looking for people throughout Los Angeles who have a passion for photography and a commitment to the city. Photographers selected for this program will have their photos featured on LAFD social media, in Department manuals and more, with exposure to tens of thousands.
The enrollment period for this round of the Volunteer Photographer Program has closed. Thank you for your interest.
