Hire Her

HIRE HER launched in October of 2017, as a social enterprise of Las Fotos Project. Through our team of photography students, we provide photography services to a range of organizations while providing teenage girls from underserved communities with on-the-job training. 

OUR CLIENTS vary from nonprofits to businesses. Organizations hire us to capture images for documentation, marketing, and websites. Some of our past clients include Ciclavia, The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, AARP California, Red Bull, The Food Policy Council, College Track and Inner City Struggle. 

OUR STUDENTS are ambitious teenage girls, ages 15-18, predominantly from South and East Los Angeles who desire a creative outlet, and are passionate about telling stories through photography. We pair our students with professional photographers who serve as mentors and supervisors during paid photo assignments, ensuring they capture professional images while strengthening their photography skills and building confidence.

OUR SERVICES:

  • Events (e.g. fundraisers, galas, awards)
  • Headshots 
  • Photo Booths

THE IMPACT  Although a male-dominated industry, our social enterprise positions itself as a female-driven photography business. Hire Her disrupts the landscape by teaching teenage girls how to leverage their technical photography skills while empowering them to pursue opportunities within the digital media industry. Through weekly classroom instruction and on-the-job training, we equip our students with the tools, skills, and knowledge necessary to think critically, explore creative careers, and become self-sufficient.
