Ms. Hiring Manager
Full Time seeks a fulltime freelance photo editor. Primary duties include researching proprietary and stock film for the site's slideshows, blogs, and special projects; preparing web-optimized (sized, color-corrected, retouched) images for the site; scouting/assigning new talent for original shoots; and shooting digitally, as needed.

The ideal candidate will possess strong communication skills and be able to collaborate with editors to conceptualize new and interesting ways to illustrate content through photography in order to deliver the best imagery for the site. He or she will be able to work within tight time and budget constraints (and be able to prepare budgets, too). He or she will be proficient with Photoshop, Bridge, and other relevant software, and have solid knowledge about rights and permissions. Above all, the ideal candidate must be able to hone in on the publication's visual style, and quickly and efficiently source photos that are on-brand and of the highest caliber.

Please note that this is not an entry-level position: the ideal candidate must have at least 5 years of experience working in the photo department of a fast-paced web environment, with daily deadlines.

Please send a cover letter outlining your experience and skills along with your resume.
