Recently, RISE Life Services partnered with Dispatch Press Images, a photojournalism website. Mr. Lander, photojournalist, has been donating his incredible photography work to RISE in order to help us share our latest, The Advocacy Initiative.

Dispatch Press Images is a division of American Photojournalism, Inc., established in 1981. They are a press photo agency, carrying a working relationship with professional photographers around the world. They are dedicated to reportage, following in the traditions of the great photo agencies of the 20th century, and with respect to the magazines that carried their work, including Life and many others. The selection of photography is made up of photo essays, spot news, and stock photography. Their mission is to make these photographs available to the mass media such as newspapers, magazines, book publishers, direct mail and the web. Through photo assignments and on-site breaking news events, they are able to bring these photos to the web 24/7. They also offer assignment work for editorial or advertorial clients.

We invite you to explore more about Dispatch Press Images on their website, blog and social media platforms. The photos convey powerful and important messages. Special thanks to Dispatch Press Images for dedicating time and incredible effort to photo shoots throughout Suffolk County for RISE!
