Where: Citi Field, Flushing NY
When: New York Mets home games: April 5th – October 3rd, 2010
Salary: $10.00/hr with bonus opportunities
Amazin’ Fan Photo staff photographers take photos of fans during games and events, which are then made available via mets.com for purchase.
Games-There are 12-15 photographers working every Mets home game. You are not required to work every game but we do request that you are available to work 75% of games during each homestand (to clarify, a homestand is the number of games played at home, back to back, and can range between 6 and 10 games). Each photographer has a specific section of the park during pre-game and in-game. We require our photographers to be here 2 hours prior to game time to shoot the pre-game crowds. We usually shoot until the 7th inning, after which you are free to watch the rest of the game in the standing room only sections. Shifts are approximately 3.5-5 hours long and you are on your feet moving around the stadium and interacting with fans the entire time.
General-We provide shirts and all digital SLR camera equipment. All you need is to bring is yourself and an outgoing, positive attitude. Although we do not require previous photography experience, it is preferred along with an interest in the field of photography. We are looking for enthusiastic, reliable, social people who have basic camera knowledge.
If this seems like a good fit for you please apply online. Interviews will be held early March (exact dates to be determined). This is NOT a full-time position.
