Freelance Photographer job – Candid Campus Photography – Gretna, LA
We are a regional photography company based out of New Orleans. We primarily do school photography, and are currently looking for more freelance photographers for shoots this fall. This is a great opportunity to earn some extra money, learn more about event photography, and network with other photographers in the area.
Most of our business is with colleges and universities in the area. Our busiest times are the December and May graduation seasons, but we have many other shoots throughout the year. During the fall semester, we’ll be shooting senior portraits at various on-campus senior fairs in the area. We’ll also need a few good people for the December graduations we shoot at the end of the semester.
Working for us on a freelance basis means that some times in the year are busier than others. That said, if you do prove yourself as a valuable photographer, more jobs will come your way.
Graduations are paid by the shoot (about $100 for 3-4 hours of work), and senior fairs are paid hourly (rates range from $10-20 per hour based on experience).
Ideally, I’d like to find 2-3 people who are looking for long-term part-time work. People who would want to work a few senior fairs this fall as well as next year, and are also open to working graduations in December and May. Senior fairs are usually on weekdays and span the whole day, so someone with a 9-5 Monday-Friday job wouldn’t be ideal. Anyone who works a variety of freelance jobs with a fair amount of flexibility would be the best fit.
I’m looking for people who would be available for both types of events, so if you are interested and available for both weekdays and weekends, please title your application e-mail “Senior Fair AND Graduation Photographer”.
We are looking for people who are detail oriented, good communicators, and have experience or a basic knowledge of photography. Extensive experience is not required, but you should at least have used an SLR camera in the past.
Applicants MUST be team players! Willingness to jump in and seek out ways to help the team and serve the customer is key! We look for people who can “float” to where they’re needed at a shoot, not someone who won’t jump in because it “isn’t in their job description.” So if you’re a proactive hard worker with an interest in working in photography, please reply to this ad.
