We will be looking for the following types of help in 2012. The positions will be part-time, and the work will likely fluctuate with the ebb and flow of our shooting season. Please note: the positions listed are not photography positions.
1- Office assistant & general studio help: organizing files, keeping the studio clean, errands, handling file backups, greeting walk-ins and clients, answering phone and returning messages. May assist with management of workflow software and client database, and with loading and renaming files in Lightroom, and other duties as needed.
2- Production and Design Coordinator: processing photo sessions and weddings in Lightroom and/or Photoshop, loading them to the appropriate hard drives and discs, making slideshows from weddings and photo sessions, loading proofing images to ProSelect, loading online galleries, initiating album designs (possibly completing designs, DOQ,) photo retouching. This person will be responsible for managing the studio workflow, and ensuring that deadlines are being met, supplies are stocked, and client needs are being promptly addressed.
Candidates with experience with the following software are preferred: Lightroom, Photoshop and Bridge, ShowIt, ProSelect, ShootQ, DigiLabs uploader, PageGallery, Photojunction. PC familiarity is also preferred.
3- Sales: some meeting with potential clients if the photographers are out shooting, mostly handling portrait proofing sessions and selling prints, albums, canvases, etc from the sessions. Some evening and weekend hours are likely.
4- Intern: We may have a spot for one summer intern (typically a photography/design student) who would like to gain experience working in the business, helping with our production, assisting or shadowing our photo shoots and/or weddings, and learning about the business side of photography. Internships are unpaid. We offer experience, knowledge, portfolio building and mentorship, and you offer an extra hand at the studio (~15 hrs per week.)
NO PHONE CALLS, PLEASE. Qualified and interested candidates, please apply at email@example.com. A resume would be nice. A personal paragraph or two from you would be helpful–not the usual, canned, stuffy cover letter. This is a small boutique studio with a positive atmosphere, and we are looking for people who will “click” with the team…no pun intended.
