Hey! Thanks for visiting our blog and wanting to know a little bit more about what we get up to here at Robyn Davie Photography.

We created this online space to showcase our team's photographic work; but also to share tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your photo shoot with us.

We're also building up some fun content, in the form of chats and interviews with moms, and a few posts showcasing the best of Joburg - this city that we love so much!

Calling All Photographers!

April 2, 2019

 

 Hello! Thanks for showing an interest in joining my photographic team :)

 

{Please read this post all the way through - the submission guidelines are down towards the bottom of the post, and must be followed in order for your submission to be accepted!}

 

Our associate photographer program has been running since early 2015, and is designed as a way to empower and educate young photographers, as well as keep up with our high levels of client demand in terms of photo shoot bookings.

 

I really am looking for the cream of the crop - I hold myself to a very high standard, and have spent years honing my craft, and I expect the same level of commitment and excellence from my team members.

 

My style is all about capturing the natural, raw moments in life - no babies dressed as sunflowers or wrapped up in itchy tutus! What I love most about what I do is the timeless, non-cheesy aspect to it - photos that can be truly treasured for a lifetime because they capture life just the way it is.

 

When I do a photo shoot I aim to make it as stress-free, fun and easy as possible - it's just me, my camera, and potentially a reflector. I'm looking for photographers who have a similar understanding of how to use natural light, and don't need to rely on a large amount of equipment to take great photographs. Read more about the way that I use light in this post here.

 

Please note that we capture a large variety of photo sessions, from our family work to our corporate work. If you aren't a family photographer, we are also looking for people who can document head shots, personal branding, corporate events etc etc. You can have a look at more of our corporate work on this website.

 

 

ROLES I'M LOOKING TO FILL:

 

Associate Photographers

- Photographers who are experienced, with a high level of quality and creativity in their work.

- These photographers will be sent out on assignments and shoots on their own, and must have the confidence to capture a photo session at the same high standard that I do.

- Sessions would include family shoots, kids birthday parties, head shots, corporate shoots and evening functions such as 60th birthdays (confidence with flash photography is a bonus, but not a necessity!).

- Photographers MUST have a similar style to my own - please read over this post for more info.

- It is essential to own your own full-frame camera.

- This is a paid position, renumeration TBD.

 

 

All applicants must be reliable, committed and dependable! Being late or not pitching for a booked and confirmed photo session is unacceptable. 

 

We are currently accepting applicants in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

 

I am expecting photographic applicants to know their way around a full-frame DSLR camera of a professional level, and to be confident at shooting in manual. I am not looking to train candidates from scratch, it is imperative that you have completed/are completing photographic training. There are plenty of ways to learn photography on your own (that's how I did it!), but also great courses throughout Johannesburg - just google it!

 

Ideal candidates are vibrant, fun and great with people.

 

Candidates may already have a full time job, or really love the creative side of photography, without feeling the need or being ready to run their own businesses.

 

It's completely ok if all you have is a few free hours on a weekend :)

 

Please note that I am looking for high quality portfolio submissions - ideally of families and people. If you don't have pics like these, consider organising a lifestyle photo shoot with family members (read my tips for a family photo session here), or joining an Instawalk in order to snap some great portraits. Photographs need to be taken on DSLR cameras, and edited before submission.

 

PLEASE SEE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES BELOW!

 

 

 

 

 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

 

1. Please send me ONE email with your submission. I will not accept multiple emails with numerous photographs - resize them so they all fit into a single email, or better yet send me a link to your online work.

 

2. Include a paragraph or two about yourself, your passions and why you would like to join my photographic team.

 

3. Include a short description of your photographic journey - where/what you have studied, who inspires you photographically, where you see yourself going as a photographer.

 

4. Let me know what gear you are shooting on - cameras and lenses. 

 

5. Please let me know where you are based.

 

 

- There is no submission deadline, I will be adding team members on an ongoing basis as I find the right matches.

 

Email your submission to: hello@robyndavie.com

 

 

I'm looking forward to hearing from you go-getter :)
