Our Mission

Anyone can take a picture, but not everyone can capture one that matters.

The photos that matter stick with us. They transport us. They make us think. They shift our perspective. These photos—the ones people risk their lives to take—have the potential to change the world.

As a company of photographers, we believe in the power of photojournalism. This vital medium gives us a conscience—and we’re committed to doing what we can to keep it alive. For us, that starts with supporting the fearless artists and visual storytellers behind it.

The Depth Collective offers financial help to photojournalists around the world who wish to use the Light L16 in their storytelling. In partnership with these visual changemakers, we hope to illuminate some the most complex issues facing humanity today.


Everything you need to capture fearlessly.

  • $500 off the Light L16 camera
  • Free Peak Design wrist strap and pouch
  • Early look at new Light L16 features and updates
  • Opportunity to win a bi-annual reporting grant of $5,000

Think you're a fit for the program?

The Depth Collective is a community of photographers and visual artists who are committed to telling stories that matter. We are an inclusive group, intent on supporting and empowering all visual voices who seek to be agents of change. Our only prerequisite: an itch to create.
