Bone Mountain Bristlecone is seeking part time help with product photography, and other aspects of our e-commerce startup.
Currently we are looking for someone to help us prepare for our online sale in March / April, but this would become a long term job for the right candidate. Initially, we are looking for 3-8 hours per week, on a very flexible schedule.
The job is located in Monte Vista, Colorado, with some possibility of doing part of the work remotely. This is a great mentor-ship and learning opportunity, particularly for someone who would like to own a business one day.
Successful candidate will be photographing individual pieces of our unique wood in our studio. Responsibilities will also include post-processing the photographs and preparing both the photographs and the wood for sale and (in some cases) subsequent shipment. Applicants will have a great opportunity to learn about product photography and in the inner workings of starting up and running a busy small art-related business. The right candidate could also have the opportunity to contribute to the branding, graphics, and many other aspects of our rapidly growing business.
THIS IS A PAID POSITION. IT IS ALSO AN EXCELLENT WAY TO BUILD YOUR RESUME & GAIN EXPERIENCE.
Our ideal candidate will have the following qualifications:
(however, all of these things are not totally necessary):
--DLSR photography skills. It is important that the candidate understand the relationship between aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, and ISO, and know how to use a DSLR. (You will be able to use your camera or ours.)
--Lightroom, Photoshop, Digital Photo Professional (the Canon software similar to Lightroom). You must have the ability to process a large number of photographs quickly & accurately. Having strong computer skills & the ability to pick up skills quickly is more important than knowing any particular piece of software.
-- It is critical that the candidate have a "good eye"-- this is: attention to detail, and a good sense of composition.
— Ability to work on your own and efficiently complete tasks on your own.
—Experience with selling things online is a bonus (Ebay, Amazon, Etsy, Shopify, etc), but not necessary.
— Interest in learning about product photography and e-commerce.
— Familiarity & interest in woodworking is a bonus though not strictly necessary.
— Flexibility & willingness to help out wherever you are needed.
If you are interested, please send me the following things:
--A resume and/or letter that outlines your relevant experience, and interest in working on this project with us.
--Samples of photos you’ve taken. They do not need to be product photos. (You can send a link or use Dropbox if you want.)
— References from a prior job or a professor are a bonus.
— An idea of your schedule / availability over the next 2 months. There is potential for this to become a long-term internship. There is also potential to do some of the work remotely.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
