Photographers Wanted

We are looking for new photographers for new areas.

This opportunity is suitable for a competent photographer who is preferably currently working within the industry and wants to further their career and increase their weekly income. This is for someone who loves working with children. You must show attention to detail and be able to meet deadlines and manage competing priorities and be self disciplined. You must hold a current driver's licence, your own vehicle, photographic equipment and an ABN. This is more about joint effort rather than working for a boss in a job.

We will discuss a geographical area that suits you to work within and together we go about canvasing preschools using the package and system we've put together over years of experience.

Looking for weekday work?

You will spend two to three hours at a preschool in the morning usually from 8:45 and gone by 11.30. Then it's back home/studio to edit and upload photos of an afternoon. You are paid on a per individual child basis. Some preschools may have 30 children and some may have 160 children. Small preschools may only be one day and the larger preschools may be five days. Once you become streamlined and efficient you can work four hours a week of thirty depending on the size of the Preschool.

Preschools like good photographers.

We will send flyers and sample packages to preschools in your area usually at the beginning of each year. It will be up to you to call in and canvas new preschools and chase leads for preschools in your area.Depending upon how you perform and how well your photos look you will get recommend to other Preschools through word of mouth. Only this is how you build your portfolio. You may start with two Preschools and work your way up. Twenty preschools per photographer per year is not unusual. The good thing with this work is it is repeat business. As a wedding or portrait photographer repeat business can be few and far between. If you do a great job chances are you'll be called back next year.

Advertise your own business.

If you are conducting family portraits through your own business why not advertise in the best place possible. We are happy to cross promote your business with ours and recommend you to individual families within preschools. You can advertise your business when it comes to portrait work and anything not preschool photo related.

Communication is key.

We need you to keep in contact with us let us know what is happening through email phone and text. Your work needs to be sent with efficiency. So you must be able to meet deadlines and keep up to date in getting your work sent off.
