Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Big Mark Crew!

2016 has been an eventful year.  Big Mark Photography covered just over 92 individual events, ranging from Corporate Events to Graduations, Birthday Parties to Circus’s, from Dragonboat Races to Gala Dinners.

And 2017 is looking to be even busier.

So we are looking for freelance event photographers to join our awesome and professional crew.

At Big Event Photography we commit to a diverse, multi-cultural environment that is inclusive of all people of all races, cultures, sexual orientation, national origin and genders.   If you’ve ever thought about doing something like this but you’ve “second guessed” yourself: then please by all means contact us, we want to hear from you.

You will need access to a pro-grade DSLR and a back-up DSLR.  You will need to have lenses that can cover the range between at least 24 mm and 200 mm with constant aperture, and a couple of hot-shoe flashes.

You will need to know your stuff: the basic principals of photography, how your camera and your lenses work, and how best to use your camera flash in less than optimal conditions.  And we will test you on this  🙂

You need to be able to demonstrate you can work well with other people, not only our customers, but with other members of the team.

This work is freelance: so you are self-employed, there is no guarantee of work, and we will engage you via “mutual agreement” assignment by assignment.  For the first few assignments you will work in tandem with one of our senior photographers, will be given comprehensive critique on your images by Big Mark after every event, and you will be given additional training as required (not just in event photography) to help with your photography and your personal skills.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in: then send an email to Big Mark at mark@bigmark.co.nz

Put “Event Photographer for 2017” in the subject line.  Tell us a bit about yourself in the email, tell us what your future goals are in photography, and include a link to any images/portfolio you may have online.  If you have any questions please let me know.  We are going to be talking to people all through January.

Thanks all!  Happy New Year again, and I hope this year is a successful one for all.
