Contract Job Photographer – National Dance Competition
StarQuest International is a performing arts competition UNLIKE ALL OTHERS. We tour 60+ cities each year and deliver a truly unique experience to young performers. Collectively, we are a team of creative leaders with different skills and personalities who work non-stop together to deliver the best experience possible to anyone we encounter. We are looking for motivated leaders to join our touring Road Warrior team.
What POSITIONS are we looking for?
This position is most aligned with sports photography, responsible for capturing the physical peaks and emotional moments throughout each and every performance. As our Photographers are located directly in the pit and often are shooting up to 250 entries per day, confidence in artistic consistency and longevity are important. These photos immediately get sent to the lobby for on-site viewing, so retouching is not an option! A strong eye for composition and the skill of accurate anticipation to perfectly align timing are a MUST!
What QUALITIES do our Road Warriors possess?
• Innate leadership with prior experience in their field
• Impeccable logistical and problem-solving skills
• Strong communication
• Mastery of time management & multitasking
• Prior experience working in a fast-paced environment
• Skill in moving quickly through time and space
• Ability to work well on little to no sleep (And thrive while doing it!)
• Sense of humor
What’s in it for YOU?
This is a truly unique experience that will allow you to grow personally & professionally. You’ll work side by side with people who love what they do and strive to find the best way to overcome obstacles and accomplish a common goal. It is challenging, yet extremely rewarding. With this type of work and schedule, you will have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to evaluate your own skills and grow to your fullest potential.
We are hiring in 3 locations across the country by appointment only in November and December. We will not be conducting Skype interviews at this time, so please do not apply unless you are available to attend interviews in person and able to travel from New York, NY, Chicago, Illinois, or Raleigh, North Carolina throughout the season.
