Pay: -Competitive hourly wage of $20/hour at weddings with room for financial growth if candidate brings hard work and talent to the table -$10/hour at portrait sessions as these are less physically and creatively demanding. -$10/hour for training sessions not involving a formal shoot. -Paid drive-time to shoots at .50/mile.
Requirements/Qualifications: -Must live in Wilmington, NC area (where we're based). -Eager to learn and deliver excellent customer service skills (aka, be bubbly as heck). -High School diploma or GED strongly preferred but not required. -1-2 years of background in people photography. -Ability to work long hours on your feet and get in weird positions for the artistic shot. -Must be go-getter and able to go through motions without having to be told. -Must be flexible and able to work weekends occasionally. -Must be okay with going out of town for weddings occasionally. (YAY for traveling to new places!) -Reliable, insured vehicle and valid U.S. driver's license (so you can come to office or leave early from weddings and get back home).
