"We meet so many good people and it’s our favorite way to gain exposure," says PhotoSesh Co-Founder Christopher Seshadri

Although still in a startup growth stage, PhotoSesh finds ways to use some time and resources to give back. Not only is the company a part of the Pledge 1% club donating time to their communities, PhotoSesh has also found a way to contribute their tech services through "philanthropic photography." PhotoSesh, the startup known by many as the Uber or Airbnb of Photographers, has a stellar lineup of charity event coverage coming up in 2017.

"Giving back to the community will always be a top priority of ours," says PhotoSesh President Shari Seshadri, "Instead of pumping dollars solely into corporate ad agencies, we instead prioritize paying for the photography coverage at charitable events."

Founders Shari and Chris had their own pain points in the process of hiring photographers when they themselves were in need of photographic services years ago. It was the need of photographers for their "CarePacks4Homeless" initiative, that planted the seed for the PhotoSesh concept. Three years later, the PhotoSesh App has become America's leading On-Demand photography platform and now claims the title of the easiest, fastest, and most efficient way to book a photographer in the United States..

PhotoSesh has no plans to slow down their involvement with charity and volunteering. "We meet so many good people and it’s our favorite way to gain exposure," says PhotoSesh Co-Founder Christopher Seshadri. "It’s really wonderful because we can help out some of these charitable missions that are doing something meaningful within the communities. Since these events are usually quite family friendly, we get to be with our children and invite loved ones to come join in on the fun. Our weekends are packed with charity fundraisers and it’s great for our kids to be around some really good people in our community."

PhotoSesh tries to help out anywhere on the map as best as they can. Their brand gets introduced to a lot of people through these events and are able to contribute to the communities along the way. "It’s something we will never stop doing as a company, as a community, and as a family. We believe good people like to work with companies that do good things. We want to work with photographers that do good and we want our customers to enjoy being a part of this harmonious PhotoSesh community, which is what our company stands for."
