The Telegraph of Nashua, N.H., a 26K daily, 30K Sunday newspaper covering southern New Hampshire, is on the cutting edge of multimedia journalism. We have an opportunity for a photojournalist to come aboard and work with us.
Our newspaper, the New England Press Association and New England Newspaper Association Newspaper of the Year in 2006, regularly publishes audio slideshows and video productions on our Web site. We’re a team of three staff photographers, a shooting photo editor and a year-round intern. Photographers are encouraged and expected to be proactive in covering our communities through audio slideshow reporting and compelling video storytelling in cooperation with a talented reporting and editing staff. The ideal candidate will be an experienced photojournalist who works in a documentary style.
Experience with audio field recording and video production is helpful. As our craft is dynamic and change occurs rapidly, training will be provided as necessary. This will most likely be an afternoon or night shift. Flexibility is required.
We are currently transitioning to Canon camera gear, including a pool 300 f2.8. Incoming candidates will be expected to have a basic still kit for use during the transition to company-owned gear. Our multimedia equipment includes two Mac multimedia/video workstations, Final Cut Studio, Marantz digital recorders, three mini-DV video cameras, and a video/still photography studio. We have laptops for field editing.
Mileage is paid. The company provides a 401K plan, health insurance, flex spending plan, paid vacations and regular performance reviews.
If you’re up for the challenge of community journalism within the new world of multimedia reporting — and the satisfaction of working at a quality news organization, not just a newspaper — send your digital portfolio to:
Don Himsel Photo Editor The Telegraph 17 Executive Drive Hudson, NH 03051
Submissions should include resume, digital examples of still images with a sheet of accompanying thumbnails and cutlines, slideshows and/or video examples. Include a concise narrative on your thoughts on community photojournalism and digital storytelling. No calls. Emails OK at firstname.lastname@example.org
