Become an Event Photographer

Take photographs of Dementia UK participants on the course and at the post race reception with their medal!

    Join Dementia UK staff and volunteers at our cheer point or post-race locations to get photos of our amazing runners and cyclists. You will support our runners and cyclists by providing wonderful images that commemorate the day. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet some of our amazing participants and hear why they are supporting us.

    We need volunteers work on weekends between 2.5 – 5 hours, with locations in London, Brighton, Newcastle, Birmingham and Cardiff.

    Dementia UK have a dedicated events team that manage our third-party events. We recruit and support those who have chosen to take on a physical challenge to support Dementia UK.

    Being a part of #TeamDementiaUK gives me a real buzz, It is such fun!


    As a volunteer, you’ll be asked to take photographs of Dementia UK participants on the course and at the post race reception with their medal. You may be asked to travel from our cheer point to our post-event location. We will provide a list of shots we would ideally like of our participants, but would love you to also take any other shots that you think will look great.

    We’re looking for people with experience in photography – sports ideally. Access to a car or good transport links is useful and you must have your own professional camera and be able to stand for long periods of time.
