Portland photography studio seeks assistant/editor.

Portland Photographer Craig Mitchelldyer has one of the busiest photo studios in the city. Clients include sports teams, corporations, newspapers, wire services, magazines, shoe companies, lawyers, weddings and everything in between.

Our current studio assistant, Liz, started as an intern seven years ago and has been with us ever since. She is moving on to focus on her own business and we are very sad to see her go. This is not an intern level position, however interns are encouraged to apply. (We are also accepting internship applications, details here:

We are looking for an energetic, outgoing person to join the team, with a long term employee goal in mind.

* Photographer Assistant Duties
* Equipment Setup and Tear Down

* Promotional Material Design
* Some Shooting

The ideal candidate will have experience with Aperture (or Lightroom, but Aperture is what we use), and be proficient in Photoshop. Excellent communication skills and ability to work independently are a must. We are looking for an addition to the team, not just an employee. We value ideas that you bring to the table.

This is not a shooting position, but preference will be given to a candidate who also shoots great photos. Sometimes there is a need for a second person to cover events.

Hours will vary greatly depending on the studio schedule, averaging 20-30 hours per week in the spring/summer/fall and a bit less in the winter. Hours can also be flexible.
