Photographer/Videographer for National Tour
StarQuest Dance Competition is a nationwide dance competition, touring to 70+ cities each year and delivering a truly unique experience to young performers. We are looking for motivated, positive, people-oriented leaders to join our touring Road Warrior team!
What POSITIONS are we looking for?
Photographer/Camera Operator: Each tour has 2 camera team members onsite, alternating a few times daily between both of these positions. The photographer position is a sports photographer, responsible for capturing the physical peaks and emotional moments throughout each and every performance. Often shooting up to 100 photos per entry with only 18-20 seconds between each entry for 2-3 hours at a time, so confidence in artistic consistency and endurance are important. Camera operation is live, fixed center-house tripod shooting. Strong skills in anticipating quick motion, maintaining consistent composition and a willingness to learn are required. These photos/videos are immediately sent to the lobby for on-site viewing, so retouching is not an option, which means a strong eye is a MUST!
What QUALITIES do our Road Warriors possess?
• A love of providing a great experience to guests of all ages!
• Impeccable logistical and problem-solving skills
• Strong communication
• Mastery of time management and multitasking
• Prior experience working in a fast-paced environment
• Ability to load in, load out, and carry heavy equipment
• Skill in moving quickly through time and space
• Ability to work well on little to no sleep (And thrive while doing it!)
• Sense of humor
What’s in it for YOU?
This is a truly unique experience that will allow you to grow personally and professionally. You’ll work side by side with people who love what they do and who strive to find the best way to overcome obstacles and accomplish a common goal. It is challenging, yet extremely rewarding.
