Photographers: We found some work-from-home jobs that could help you make some extra money on the side.
The photography blogging platform Photoblog.com is rebooting its website and adding to its small team of creative professionals to grow its audience.
These flexible positions are part-time and remote — you can work from anywhere with an internet connection.
Photography Writers: $15/hr
As part of the reboot, the site is launching a photography blog this month, so it’s hiring a team of writers.
The “official blog will be the home to a library of educational articles, tutorials, guides, interviews, features and more,” according to the job listing.
You’ll join an existing small team of remote writers to produce educational and inspirational content for photographers.
Because you’ll be writing as an authority on the subject, the listing stresses, “Ideal candidates should have a strong command of photography and possess the ability to clearly and effectively share their knowledge with others.”
In addition to your writing skills, you should have a strong photography portfolio.
Your workload is flexible, but you should ideally be able to produce an average of two to three 750-1,500-word articles per month — plus sourced images.
Pay is $15 an hour.
To apply: Send your writing samples, a link to your photography portfolio and a brief intro to the email listed here.
Community/Social Media Manager: $10-$15/hr
Photoblog is also hiring a community and social media manager to help grow its online community and social media channels.
You should be a strong communicator, skilled at encouraging conversation and building communities, as well as be familiar with and good at crafting content for social media platforms.
You don’t have to be an experienced photographer, but you should know enough about the basics (like composition) to make conversation with community members.
You would be the “face” of the platform, and your responsibilities would include:
- Monitoring user content to make sure it meets Photoblog.com guidelines.
- Commenting on user posts to encourage conversation.
- Communicating with users for feedback and welcoming new users.
- Choosing user content to feature on various platforms.
- Contributing to FAQs, tutorials and other resources.
- Answering customer support requests.
- Engaging with users and growing social media channels.
Pay is $10-$15 an hour, depending on experience. The listing doesn’t specify the number of hours per week.
To apply: Send your resume to the email listed here. Note the subject line, and be sure to answer these questions in your email:
- Do you have basic photography knowledge?
- Do you have prior community management or social media management experience?
