The Phoblographer is Hiring. Join the Most Progressive Photo Site Around

We’ve got a few positions open still! Join our team!

Hey folks,

We’ve done an internal revamp to refocus what we want right now. To make us stand out even more from other sites, we’re adding a few other positions to the staff. Women make up half our staff, lots of our staff are internationally based, and we’re still growing. To that end, Women, POCs, and anyone else are very encouraged to apply. Want a steady gig? Take a look. Want an internship? Take a look!

Editor’s Note: If you’d like to apply for a college internship, please do let us know! We’ll figure out a way to work with you. Just fill out any of the applications and make a note that you’re looking for college credit. You’ll still be paid of course.

Photography Science Editor (Hiring Outside the US)

The Phoblographer requires a brand new position: the Science Editor. This person will work closely with the rest of the tech team as we work to expand the site’s coverage. You will be crucial to helping steer the site into a brand new space.

This person will be responsible for working on popular tech and science-based articles in the photo world. Some of it revolves around AI, lighting, lenses, camera sensors, etc. Brainy pieces are often a whole lot of fun to produce!

Requirements

– Must be proficient with WordPress. This is absolutely mandatory. Other apps that we use are Trello, Gmail for work, and Grammarly. It’s a big plus if you’ve worked with the Gutenberg editor.

– Strong command of the English language; the American dialect and spelling are mandatory. Being able to create enticing leads and headlines will really convince us.

– Previous Imaging tech writing experience. Ideally, we’d like to see articles that you’ve written.

– The Phoblographer champions its ethics and has since day one. We refuse to work with Unsplash and believe that creators should be compensated ethically. And we’re also looking for someone with high moral standards.

– Must have industry technical knowledge. We’re talking about more than just apertures and shutter speeds. Demonstrate what you know about sensors, processors, etc. There’s going to be research and interviewing involved with this job.

– One or two articles a week. Longer articles are at least 1200 words. You’ll have to do interviews and format them into cohesive pieces. Otherwise, you can also just write from your own knowledge; but you’ll have to demonstrate this to us. This is a freelance job. No one on staff (except for me) needs to work more than 8 to 12 hours a week. Mental health is vital to us. If you’re working longer than that, then you’re doing something very wrong. We’ve had people waste a lot of time before unnecessarily, and we’re not looking for that. The site treats its workers very well, and we expect the same in return.

– Must be able to meet deadlines and have open communication. We’re usually pretty okay with lateness as long as there’s open communication about that happening beforehand. We’re incredibly flexible.

– Must work well with a team and be able to take the guidance (sometimes constructive criticism) well

– You’ll have a trial period of three months.

– Monetary payments are made through PayPal, Zelle, Venmo, or check. Everyone is paid on average, no more than 24 hours after submitting an invoice. The Phoblographer is well known for fair and honest compensation amongst the photography blogging world.

– We have a very strict non-compete policy.

How to Apply

Skip the resume and send an impressive cover letter to chrisgampat@thephoblographer.com, citing all the best stuff you’ve done, along with three writing samples demonstrating that you can do the type of work we’re looking for. Links to your website, portfolio, and writing samples should be included.

Be sure to make the subject line say your name and the position you’re going for. For example, Chris Gampat: Science Editor.

After your application is received, it will be reviewed by me. Good luck to all applicants!

– Must work well with a team and be able to take guidance (sometimes constructive criticism) well

Declassified Researcher (Based Around the World)

original

This researcher will take over for me on the DeClassified series. Arguably, this is probably one of the most fun jobs on the site. I used to spend lots of time on Friday digging into the CIA’s Declassified archives about photography. Then I’d find a way to create a coherent story. I used to enjoy it. But my role is moving more into actually being a true Editor in Chief and Publisher of the site. So you’ll be taking the reins from me.

Requirements

– Must be proficient with WordPress. This is absolutely mandatory. Other apps that we use are Trello, Gmail for work, and Grammarly. This specific position will also be working with another platform that we use.

– Strong command of the English language; the American dialect and spelling is a plus.

– Previous imaging news writing experience or columnist experience.

– Will be able to demonstrate knowledge of copyright laws as they pertain to using images, etc.

– Must have industry technical knowledge; artistic photography knowledge is a nice plus!
