Hiring Wedding Photographers Cincinnati Ohio

Career Opportunities

We are always looking for quality talent to add to our team of photographers and assistants. If you are a passionate, driven person with an eye for photography, or if you would just like to assist the bride and help make her day more enjoyable, please fill out our online application. No experience or schooling is required since we have our own training program. All we require is a passion for photography, people, weddings, and a creative eye.

If you cannot make a one year commitment to work part time through the wedding season (primarily April through November) do not apply.  Replacing people weeks before a couple's wedding is not fair to that couple.

No Experience Required! We will train you!

We are actively recruiting Wedding Photographers and Wedding Day Assistants. We want to begin training during the off season so you can start shooting sometime in 2020. The job is part time and seasonal.

We expect a 1 year commitment (and hopefully longer) to work exclusively for our studio.

 

TRAINING:
We provide free training for both the photographers and assistants, so no experience is required.

Wedding day assistants require very minimal training. If you love weddings, helping people and you have an outgoing energetic personality, you are a perfect fit! You will support the photographers but your primary focus is to help the bride and her bridesmaids eliminate small stresses throughout the day.

All photographers regardless of experience are taught the fundamentals of photography, lighting, technique etc according to our standards. We will have free photography workshops. You then have the opportunity to shadow one of our photographers followed by one on one critiques with Daniel Michael. This continues till you and Daniel are both comfortable photographing a wedding (generally 6-12 weddings).

There are opportunities for promotion and raises to be a lead photographer if desired.

As the second photographer your primary goal is candid photography. You are not expected to do posing, extra lighting, timeline management or post production work.

 

SALARY:
The starting salary for assistants is $100 for typically a 7-9 hour day. You are not required to stay at the reception so there are no late nights

The starting salary for photographers is $175 if you have your own professional camera, lens and flash. We offer rentals if needed while you get started. You are not required to do any post production work. You just leave your card with the lead photographer and we take it from there. You are not required to stay at the reception so there are no late nights.

Raises are given as your skill level increases.

REQUIREMENTS:
Male and Female photographers are wanted
The assistant job is geared toward women.
Must be at least 18 to apply.
