UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word (and to all who expressed interest). We’re no longer looking to fill these positions.
Hi, again, everyone. Rebecca and I are once more on the lookout for some help, and since you all have been very helpful so far with referrals for our as yet unannounced project, I thought I would try asking around here and via social media before we go the old fashioned route in terms of filling the positions mentioned in the title of this post.
Details below. Any questions, please feel free to ask. If you’re interested or know someone who might be interested, please contact me via Twitter, FB, or via this site.
Finally, in the interests of transparency, these are (basically) low-no pay positions. I wish they weren’t, but we’ll do what we can to repay the favor of any friends of friends who have the skills to help out for a day or two and wouldn’t mind giving us a hand.
Event Photographer Needed for Evening of 7/18 (NYC)
We’re looking for someone to take candid shots during a programmed presentation and while mingling in the crowd before and after the presentation. The hours would be from about 6:45PM to 9:00PM on 7/18.
Ideally, candidates will have some experience with this type of photography, and their own equipment.
As per usual, unfortunately, we have very little available in terms of budget. We’re definitely asking for a favor, which would be returned in the form of future paid work (if/when we have other gigs and more of a budget), referrals and public praise.
That being said, if you’re a pro and are perhaps interested, feel free to contact us with a proposed modest fee in mind for the use of your equipment and for processing. You’d also be free to enjoy the event as you are able, in between snapping shots.
Graphic Artist Needed for Quick Photoshop Job (NYC, Remote Possible)
We’re also looking for a decently experienced graphic artist. I can’t yet release the full details of what we need done in terms of the gig, but the ideal candidate will have experience with layering and basic visual effects work in addition to general photo editing skills.
The artist would need to be available to complete this work by 7/19 or 7/20, after delivery of assets on 7/18. I can provide more specific details to interested applicants.
As with the photographer role, we’re unfortunately very limited in terms of budget. We would return the favor with future paid work (if/when we have other gigs and more of a budget), referrals and public praise. This project may also provide you with some interesting work samples for your portfolio.
Again, if you’re interested and could be persuaded to perform this work for a modest, flat fee, please don’t hesitate to apply.
This job would probably go more smoothly if the eventual artist were based in NYC, but remote work could be possible.
