Can you share some insight on how to find the right contact when you want to cold call a large relief organization? This week I reached out to two large relief organization, and I coudn’t find on their websites who would be the right person to contact. So, I Called one and was told to put my query in writing to info@xxx.org I’ve gotten no response and juset sent a second email. The other I found a director of media relations, so I wrote her and I also wrote the general Info@xxx.org email address. Again, no responses and I’ve sent a second email and am hoping for a response. Is there a better way? Thanks.

Hi Michele. There is no easy button for this situation but it sounds like you are doing the best sleuth out the right person to talk to. Beyond that we’re told by communications directors that their inboxes are flooded photographers. They also tell us that they are looking for multiskilled professionals who can photograph, write, and shoot video. So be sure to pitch all your skills, research the organization’s specific needs, and be respectful of their busy schedules. My return on cold emailing or calls is maybe 5%. You can hear a bit more about how Laura and I find work here: http://www.ngostorytelling.com/2017/01/12/podcast-1-how-we-get-work-as-humanitarian-photographers/. Hope this helps!
