An exciting opportunity...
We are looking for a freelance assistant photographer to work with William Collinson on an exciting new book The Gardens of Arne Maynard. William will need you to be able to catalogue and optimise digital files using Aperture, and to assist with image manipulation and enhancement in Photoshop. A knowledge of photography library systems would be a great advantage.
You will need to liaise with gardeners and garden owners to confirm shoots and check that all preparation has been done, check weather conditions and equipment before shoots, and assist on location to ensure the smooth running of the day and to check that lists of requested shots are completed.
The major amount of the work will be based in Monmouthshire, South Wales, 45 minutes from Bristol and Cardiff, but the work will also involve travelling to locations around the UK. The work will be paid at a rate based on experience.
Although this is a freelance position, and the initial assistance on shoots will be one-off days, there is a potential for regular work over the next year during the preparation of this book, and possibly beyond.
An interest in garden and landscape photography and the work of Arne Maynard would be a great advantage.
If you are interested in finding our more or coming to meet us for an interview, please email Kristy on firstname.lastname@example.org.
