This position is now filled.
CliQQ Studios is a busy commercial photography and video studio with a passionate team devoted to creating the best possible work for our clients.
We are looking for a brilliant Studio Assistant or Junior Photographer to join us. This a full time, permanent contract. The role will cover a wide range of areas with the main focus on assisting senior photographers/videographers, both in the studio and on location.
This role will mainly cover:
- General studio maintenance
- Setting up lighting for shoots
- Helping pack, transport kit and setup on location
- Assisting during still and video shoots
- Helping the team with research
- Creating, painting and maintaining studio backgrounds
- Posting to the studio social media channels
- Shooting behind the scenes imagery and video of key shoots
- Driving the company car/van to and from location shoots
- Assisting in the retouching studio when required
The ideal candidate will be confident, good with people, calm under pressure and happy to apply themselves to the many and varied tasks that the role will offer. A passion and talent for photography is also obviously essential, as is a friendly, personable manor. There will often be early starts and late finishes. Whilst you will begin by assisting the senior photographers on shoots the hope is that as you improve you will graduate to running shoots yourself.
In your application please mention any experience you have assisting other photographers and also with software such as Capture One, Premier or DaVinci Resolve. Video experience would be a good advantage but not essential. You will be given training in all areas of photography and video within a busy commercial studio.
The job will be based in our studio in Colchester but you will also be required to go on location, sometimes for multiple days, potentially even abroad from some shoots.
You’ll help CliQQ Studios grow, by delivering an extremely high level of service for us and for our clients, and through this you’ll have the chance to grow too. There is plenty of scope to develop this role and seek out new opportunities within an exciting and varied studio environment. You will be around live shoots on a daily basis and be working closely with everyone in our fun, friendly team.
This opportunity is offered on full time permanent contract, salary is dependant on experience. All candidates must have a full UK driving license.
