A Pacific Ties photographer is responsible for facilitating the overall visual aesthetic of the print issue, producing visual components to supplement the writer’s work, and telling the narratives of their community through camera lenses. In addition to producing content, photographers are expected to attend weekly design and media staff meetings that provides a creative environment where editors will assist photographers in the creative photo series process, weekly office hours where that will give everyone on staff to collaborate, and occasional all staff meetings where all sections will come together to work on upcoming/ongoing projects.
There is a minimum 3 office hours per week, to be met at any time that the building is open. Experience is not required to join. New and experienced photographers are all encouraged to apply. No camera is required. However, there is a preference for those who do have their own camera. In addition, Student Media will provide training sessions taught by professionals and office hours will be available for guidance.
Please note that mandatory media law training and official Student Media photography training will occur on the weekends of Weeks 3 and 4. Times and location TBA.
