Contract Photographer

Thousand Words Photography (www.ThousandWords.Photo) will go live on April 1, 2015, and is seeking resumes/portfolios of contract photographers in Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland and D.C.
Let's be honest; $20 to $50 per hour for a talented photographer is neither fair nor sustainable.
We offer our contractors 60% of shoot net profits!
What does that mean to you?
1) An 8 hour -- 1 shooter -- wedding billed at $3000.00 would pay you approx $1200.00, after expenses;
2) A 1 hour family shoot billed at $180.00 would pay you approx $90.00, after expenses;
3) A three hour real estate survey billed at $600.00 would pay you approx $280.00, after expenses; and,
4) A 1 hour food/entertainment shoot billed at $150.00 would pay approx $75.00, after expenses.
These are some minimum requirements:
1) Statutory ability to enter into a contract;
2) A squeaky-clean/non-existent criminal record (save minor traffic violations);
3) Appropriate education, training and experience;
4) A neat and clean appearance;
5) Neat and clean transportation;
6) Appropriate equipment. NO, we will not tell you what that is. If you have appropriate education, training and experience, then you know exactly what you need. But, here's a hint, the typical competent photographer has an average of $11,645.00 in their base-kit; $14,247.00 in a wedding kit; $15,293.00 in a products kit; and $23,367.00 in a fashion kit.
7) You must shoot in RAW;
8) Insurance! We will contract you, as a business or by 1099, but you are not an employee and so must have your own insurance; and,
9) The ability to commit to a schedule! Our customers are our priority and your scheduling must reflect that!
Our website will go live April 1, and at such point you may learn more about our value proposition and service offering. In the mean-time, go to our maintenance site, view our email address and send us an email expressing your interest.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
