The Light the Shadows Projects mission is simple: bless those with photos who are going through a terminal health circumstance. It is because of amazing photographer volunteers that we can offer this, as well as the contributions of generous people and vendor collaborations.  We are forever grateful to those of you that would like to open your hearts and give to these deserving families and children.  

There are no fees required of photographers to volunteer, all applicants who meet the below requirements will be accepted as a volunteer photographer. Does this sound like you? If so we’re so thankful for your interest in us what we do, and how you can be a part of it. All of our photographers volunteer their time to LTS, in order to serve the families in need of our talents. We do categorize some of our volunteers into specific areas. If you’d like to hear more about this please give us a call at 204-232-7831 with any questions you have. You can also head to the FAQ page below for more information.

If you are interested in being an area coordinator in a place not listed below let us know!
