What We Do

Pictographers seeks to connect the world’s most vulnerable populations to those who can help them, using the combined power of words and photographs. We believe that simple, powerful communication - person to person - can change the world.

Pictographers works with a variety of nonprofit, humanitarian and non-governmental organizations to help them bring about this change through deeply compelling, action-oriented writing, photography and storytelling. Our services include training and consulting.


We conduct workshops, seminars and training sessions that help participants create more compelling, action-oriented communications. These learning opportunities usually combine classroom lectures, student interaction and documentary field work, promoting a collaborative hands-on approach.

We maintain a regular schedule of both international and domestic workshops, and can also tailor individualized workshops to your company’s or organization’s needs and specifications. You can find out about upcoming workshops by visiting our Workshops page, or contact us to inquire about creating a customized workshop.


We offer consulting services on a project or ongoing basis, which include:

  • Photography
  • Writing and editing
  • Identification of key messages and stories
  • Blog creation
  • Content and social media strategy

To set up a meeting, or simply request our rates, price quotes or a proposal, please contact us.

Pictography transcends words and pictures; it combines the two into something immediately and globally understood. Our approach creates connections and engages audiences. We craft stories and photographs into powerful new communications that help organizations inform their audiences, inspire action and achieve social change.
