Moderators - if this is off-base in here, just remove it. I think it might be a fun opportunity for the right person. The group I work with needs a couple of photographers to shoot the California coast from LA north, and hopefully as spring comes, farther up the coast and into Alaska. Right now, the goal is California for a release we're planning. You don't have to be from California. You'd most likely have a "test flight" and interview in Florida before being bought on. A few requirements: 1. You can't be afraid of heights, obviously. You will most often be working (read - hanging) out of an R22 helicopter with a Nikon D2X camera and gymballed georeferencing equipment. 2. Weight restriction of ~175 pounds due to the helicopter equipment. 3. Good computer knowledge (PC knowledge required), VERY detail oriented and an ability to plan, execute and capture very high quality images per our clients specs. Photoshop knowledge a definite plus, boating experience a major plus. 4. Good basic knowledge of photography, hopefully with SLR-type equipment. You don't have to be a pro-grade shooter (and the pay is consistent with that), but you should have a good base knowledge of photography and some samples to show. 5. You will be working and rotating with one other photographer and a pilot, basing either out of an RV, or shared hotel facilities. You will be on the road and on the move a good deal of the time, and should be able to deal with some of the rigors of the road. That said, the pay is $15.00 per hour worked. It is an excellent opportunity for a person just getting started in the field looking to add to their photographic work experience. There are other covered expenses, but I will leave that to my partner to discuss if you are interested. This is a major project for a huge international company. The pay is what it is, but the compensation is travel. There are also European, other foreign shoots we will be doing in the future. If this may tickle your fancy, PM me.
