What You’ve Done
• You’re a professional photographer. It’s not just a hobby for you: You’ve been contracted and paid for your work. Perhaps you’ve shot weddings, breaking news, real estate, restaurants and hotels, and so on, though there’s no “one size fits all” for this role.
• Bonus points if you’ve traveled extensively and stayed in a ton of hotels, but it’s not required

• Photo portfolio: Please send a link to your online photo portfolio. It should look professional and show a good cross section of your work. (Please do not send individual photos – only links.)
• A flexible schedule! You’re a contractor with a flexible schedule – candidates with full-time jobs will not be considered.
• Car and valid driver’s license
Who You Are
• Personable: Easy to talk to, easy to like. A great conversationalist.
• Easy to reach and quick to respond to emails/calls.
• Presentable and put-together, as you’ll be representing our company when you visit hotels
• Ready to travel around your region, and possibly beyond!
• Fluent in English and Spanish
What You’ll Do
• Visit and tour hotels, often leaving home for trips around your region
• Photograph each hotel extensively, according to Oyster guidelines
• Organize and folder all images you take
