How we work

Remote Content Production made easy

Fairpicture is your gateway to a global network of local visual creatives. We produce striking, culturally sensitive storytelling that fosters equal relationships among visual creators, portrayed individuals, clients, and the public. From corporate photography to ethical fundraising content to complex video production services, local photographers and videographers bring unique knowledge and context into your visual communication.

We understand that expectations are high and time is short. With a strong focus on efficiency, context, and consent, we provide a production process that saves you time, yet delivers visual content that transcends expectations.

Time saving and transparent workflow

The Fairpicture online platform provides transparency, accessebility and accountability. Contracts, briefing, guidelines and all communication is in one place and visible in an instant for everyone. As a client, a typical photo or video production follows these steps:

Submit a request including the basic parameters of the deliverables and receive a financial offer.


Review portfolios and choose a creator to co-create with.


Collaborate on the project brief together with the creator and Fairpicture. Invite your team and local staff if needed.


Regular check-ins between the visual creator and Fairpicture ensure that everything goes smoothly and that changes to plans can be addressed.


Photos, videos and texts are submitted via Fairpicture’s platform, checked for quality and consent by Fairpicture and made available for download.


Fairpicture handles all expenses payment processes. You only get one invoice.


Communication happens on the platform in our built-in chat whenever possible to ensure everyone is up to date.

Although I love to visit our fantastic water projects around the world, it makes much more sense to employ local creatives to support our storytelling while we make a contribution to the local economy and avoid unnecessary CO2 emissions.

Ethical storytelling remains the core

Videos and photos are more than just illustrations. 

They bring to our attention people, places, and realities that we would otherwise be unaware of. Our goal is that ethical pictures contribute to equal relationships between visual creators, portrayed people, clients, and the general public. 

Fairpicture visual creators narrate stories in the native tongue that are influenced by the culture and understanding of the community. In a complex world, we co-create new and innovative ways of ethical storytelling – toward a decolonised and fair picture.

Context and Consent are key

When you request photos or videos from Fairpicture you can be certain that you always receive your visual material with IPTC conform Metadata – giving you all details about origin and context of every single image of your project.  

For the consent of the people depicted, we developed the Fairpicture Consent App – the ultimate solution for our visual creators to seamlessly obtain informed consent from individuals captured in their photographs and videos, while adhering to the strict requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Curiosity and an openness to particular conditions and projects, together with a visual language that is likewise outstanding and consistent in our media presentation - this is what characterises our cooperation with Fairpicture and the local visual creators.
