About this resource

An emotive case study and a great photo can catch people's attention and engage your audience. Whether it's for social media, your website or publications, case studies and photography are vital to help you tell people's stories.

It's important that you make sure the people in your case studies and photos understand where and how the resource will be used by collecting their written permission.
