Started as a blog, it eventually grew up to the dimension of a magazine and international no profit Organisation with more than 1200 registered photographers Worldwide.  Shoot 4 Change is a nonprofit organization made out of  (both pros and amateurs) photographers, designers, artists and other visual communication dreamers who share part of their time  for shooting  humanitarian reportages for NGOs and other social organizations.

S4C isn’t intended just to be  a charitable organisation but rather as a hub of experienses and best practices.  S4C’s mission is to raise awareness and bring people’s attention to social issues and it’s an international network of volunteers working in the defense of human rights by reporting and telling forgotten, under-estimated or ignored stories: stories worth being told and shared to inspire others to do the same, with the aim of igniting a positive loop that could eventually achieve social change.

S4C pursues its mission remaining independent of political pressures.  “Crowdphotography” is one of the main concept behind S4C whether the visual collective storytelling is pursued as a true means of social control.  Among the extensive Media coverage Worldwide, S4C has been featured on New York Time’s LENS, National Geographic, Rolling Stones, La Repubblica, The Guardian, the Herald Tribune, CNN, NBC, RAI, etc. As a photographer I’ve carried out social documentary photography reportages in Afghanistan (as embedded with ISAF forces), Cairo, Lebanon, etc.  I’ve given many key note speechs about photography in internationl conferences and events, among which two TEDx talks.
