About the Job

Do you love people, headshot/portrait photography, being on-the-go, and most of all having fun? Are you interested in the power & joy of transforming how someone feels about themselves? The work requires commitment but you get all the fun of shooting without the hassle of having to handle sales, pre/post production, or retouching. We provide the style guides and our photographers hit the bullseyes. The majority of a photographer’s work will be on our Mobile Studio Trucks. Where you will drive the mobile studio to and from shoot locations around the Los Angeles area, you’ll also occasionally work inside businesses, conventions, using our pop-up studio. You will be responsible for working collaboratively with our team to deliver exceptional images with a commitment to quality and brand consistency. You will prepare for and execute shoots with punctuality, charm, and positivity -- but the sales, pre-production, and post-production/retouching will be handled by your team. This is the perfect job if you’re energetic, a great listener, adaptable, good under pressure, are a natural problem solver, and a confident driver. Please apply if you have a desire to help people achieve their goals, have a strong work ethic, and an eagerness to learn. Your studio HQ will provide coffee, snacks, and a plethora of Lacroix.
