P.A.K. is an association that embodies photography professionals, hobbyists, amateurs and those in the business relating to photography. In recognition of a growing photography industry in Kenya, the association is an open collective bargaining platform that envisions being the leading photographic society that voices the needs and interests of Kenyan photographers.

Collective Bargaining

We aspire to collectively negotiate avenues for our members on insurance, equipment deals and supplies, exhibition and workshop venues. Also, more importantly we are looking to seek partnerships with international photography bodies (Nikon, Canon and Sony) as well as strike deals with our government to facilitate shooting in various parts of the town with ease.

Capacity Building

We plan on holding monthly training forums and masterclasses for members. In addition we will hold monthly competitions with prizes to be won. For upcoming photographers, mentorship programmes will be established to grow the photography community.

Community Impact & CSR

We want to impact the society with photography related projects such as holding free photography training for the disadvantaged young people in slums or low income areas; hold portrait projects around the country and raise auctions where proceeds will go towards a created foundation by the organisation.

Industry Linkages & Partnerships

We prospect to coordinate and participate in major exhibitions and organise themed exhibitions as an association. We will establish a calender of creative events and have P.A.K represented in the events at all times.

Fundraising

To be able to raise funds for P.A.K, we plan to make merchandise such as t-shirts, hats or sweatshirts for sale, pursue potential advertisers on the website and community pages and monitor other sources of income.
