Want to Write For Us? Why Not Apply?

by Chris Gampat on 08/28/2012

Once again, I believe it’s time for me to grow The Phoblographer. With that said, I’m announcing that I’m looking to bring on:

- two to four new reviewers (all writers)

- three new educational/feature content writers (One editor, two writer)

- two new news writers (all writers)

- two new videography inclined creatives (inquire about this)

You MUST be located in the United States, however, I can make exceptions though they are extremely rare.

The ideal candidates will:

– Have great photography knowledge and be able to write well. While all articles go through my eyes and the Copy Editor’s, it makes it a lot easier on us to have polished writing and know what you’re talking about.

– Be able to contribute 2 times a week (or work on one video a week)

– Be able to review gear, write features, and write posting that teach new things to our readers.

– Be super friendly: which is something that we’ve prided ourselves on here since Day 1.

– Know how to use WordPress

– Meet deadlines well

– Communicate with myself and the rest of the staff quickly

– Be well versed in social media like Twitter, Facebook and Flickr

– Being able to answer, “Who, what, when, where, how, and why?” in every single paragraph written in the story.

BUT FIRST: YOU’RE GOING TO GO THROUGH A TRIAL OF ONE POST A WEEK!

Now here are the pluses that give you an edge:

– If you’re a current B&H and/or Amazon affiliate, we will allow you to use your links in your posting here on The Phoblographer. In fact, we let anyone use any affiliate link program.

– If you’re located in NYC (or around it) you’ll be able to accompany me to meetings with vendors and you’ll get to bond closer with some of the staff members.

– If you’re familiar with The Phoblographer’s style of doing things (have been a long time reader and can figure out what makes us different than other places like DPReview) then you’ll have an even larger edge because you’ll meld in very easily.

– Familiarity with Photo editing products is required, video editing is a plus

If you think you’ve got what it takes: shoot me an email at chrisgampat[at]thephoblographer[dot]com with a resume, a cover letter, and a portfolio link, and then we’ll take it from there. In the subject line, please put: Application for The Phoblographer (Your name here: position applying for)

In the email, also please list the gear that you use. Nikon, Canon, Sony, and Micro Four Thirds users are a plus, but not at all required.

As for how many people we’re bringing onto the team: it depends on how many great candidates we get. I’m looking forward to reviewing your application.
