UPDATE: The position has now been filled. Thanks!
The time has come to grow the team here at CliQQ. We need a creative, talented and extremely hard-working photographer to join the studio.
CliQQ Photography is a professional studio creating images for a diverse and exciting range of companies. We work in most areas of commercial photography from fitness, to products, to celebrities and everything in between. Our work can be seen in advertising campaigns, brochures and on websites across the UK and Worldwide.
We also shoot for more than 15 magazines every month covering a huge range of lifestyle and food titles.
This is an incredible opportunity for the right candidate to join the studio. We are offering the chance to work along side a team of highly experienced creative professionals operating in a very successful and dynamic studio.
The right candidate will have experience of commercial photography, working with clients to develop creative briefs, be familiar with working in a studio and on location, be used to pricing and winning new work and have a good knowledge of photographic lighting. Video experience is not essential but would be of benefit.
While some training will be provided, the successful applicant will already be working with their own clients and have a good understanding of how this business operates. It is critical that you are a self-starter with the ability to pick up the ropes and fly right from Day One, as the workload can get intense.
The work will be mainly based at the studio in Colchester, but you will also be required to go out on location shoots throughout the UK. You will begin by assisting the senior photographer on shoots but will very soon be required to be running shoots yourself. You will also be expected to attend client meetings, help to win new work and develop existing clients. There may be times where you are required to help with retouching in the post-production studio as well.
The successful candidate will be familiar with Photoshop and have a good knowledge of RAW software (CaptureOne). Experience with Profoto lighting would be helpful. A passion and talent for photography is also obviously essential, as is a friendly, personable manor. They will also be confident meeting new people and working under pressure.
Start date: Approx. March 5th
All potential candidates will be expected to supply a strong commercial photography portfolio and have a valid UK driving license. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
