My wife and I own a family portrait studio. We have so much work that both of our image editors can not keep up with us and that slows us down. (We can shoot sessions faster than they can edit) So we are looking for someone to edit our overflow. Each photo session averages about 20 to 30 photos.
Our present editors take about 3 hours to edit each session but they wait until the last minute to get the job done.
We are looking for someone who can quickly turn out high quality work.
The less time my wife and I have to spend fixing our present image editors mistakes the more time we will have to shoot additional portraits.
We are tired of having to train people only to find that they complain we give them too much work. When we shoot a session we book a time for the customer to come back to view and purchase images. Our present editors wait until the last day to finish the job and when we get the images back from them we discover they cut corners and we then need to invest our time into doing what we had paid them to do.
We want someone who is mature, reliable, quick and someone who can produce high quality edits on Family Glamour and Fantasy type portraits. You must have an artistic eye, know how to crop, colour balance, adjust brightness, add soft focus, remove skin blemishes and wrinkles, and fix dark circles from under the eyes.
Don't bid if you are new to image editing and please base your bid on 30 images since that is usually the maximum number of images per session
Deliver good results on time and we will send you many other jobs to bid on. Burn us once and we will find someone hungrier who is willing to do the job right.
This past week our primary editor decided to take the week off without giving us any advance notice so we were caught short on help and had to edit 11 sessions ourselves. The less editing we have to do ourselves the more sessions we can shoot.
My wife and I work on speculation. We take all the risk. We pay our editors before we even know if the customer will purchase anything at all and we depend on our editors to do a good job so the customers will want to buy.
So we have decided we now need to have several editors to invite to bid on our jobs instead of depending on just one or two. That way we will be able to shoot and sell more often and reward our better editors well.
