Career Opportunities

We are offering both photography and non-photography positions.  So if you love weddings, we have a job for you!

You will be expected to familiar with all of this prior to an interview so read it carefully.  If not, you will not get hired.  If you don't take the time to spend 5-10 minutes reading this, there's no reason for us to move further in the process.

We are always looking for quality people to add to our team of photographers and assistants. 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.

There is a 1 year contract to commit to only working weddings for our studio and to be available for the full year. ‚ÄčIf you cannot make that commitment do not apply.  

We are actively recruiting Wedding Photographers and Wedding Day Assistants. The job is primarily Saturdays part time and seasonal.  But we also have some Sunday and Friday weddings for those able to work them.

TRAINING:

No experience is required as we provide free training.  Wedding day training includes a $50 salary to cover any expenses for the day.  Workshops are free but there is no salary.

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 or another of our master photographers.  It is up to you to schedule your reviews between each session. This continues till we are comfortable you meet our standards (generally 8-14 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.

Wedding day assistants require very minimal training.  There is no photography required. If you are proactive, enjoy helping people and have a positive energy, 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.  Due to the intimate nature of helping laidies in the dressing room, this is a female only position.

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.  We are working toward increasing all salaries both starting salaries and the ceiling throughout the year.  Our first priority is those who have already put in the time and will work backwards.

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

Must be available on weekends all day,

Equipment: Pro Line SLR camera, Cannon Rebel and Nikon 3000, 5000 series do not meet specs.  Generally speaking, if your camera has two memory card slots and allows manual color temperature adjustments, it will fit our requirements.  Feel free to ask us about exceptions.  Zoom 70 or 80-200 mm 2.8 lens. We only use Sony, Nikon, Cannon Cameras and Lenses. We use Flashpoint Flashes and can recommend the best one to purchase (this can happen after training). We can provide some rental equipment initially to get you through training.  But you will be expected to get your own camera body early in the process.
