I am looking for someone skilled in photo re-touching / editing / manipulation to professionally edit my photographs. Photos will most likely be delivered in full-size JPEG format (possibly RAW format in the future) and uploaded to Google drive.
Editor is expected to download photos, edit, and upload completed images to Google drive within 1 week. I, as the photographer will have full rights to the photos and they cannot be posted without my permission. Editor will be expected to sort up to 3000 photos per week or more (but some times much less) and proceed to edit the best ones using Photoshop, Lightroom, Color Efex Pro, etc.
Work load will vary depending on my travel plans. To give you an idea of my work load while traveling, my last trip was 1 month long and yielded 13,000 unedited photographs, which totaled 45 final edited images. There are times when I am not traveling and you will receive very few photos or no photos to edit during that time. My travel is usually last minute so you will not have much advance notice when a new project is starting.
Most photos will be landscape style and some of them will feature people. I prefer photos to be edited in a style similar to Chris Burkard and Travis Burke. Please look them up for reference. I prefer a candidate who is experienced in editing this sort of photography. I also prefer to pay per final photo rather than by hour. I sometimes shoot using HDR technique and you will need to be able to blend these together using enfuse or enfuse GUI. I prefer a skilled expert and independent thinker who will yield beautiful, dynamic photographs without training or direction from me, but who works well in a team and is amenable to editing requests.
1. Tell me why you are interested in this job
2. Send me your 3 most relevant examples of your editing work and include the image before and after editing.
3. Tell me what editing programs you have experience using
4. Tell me about your previous experience related to this job
5. Give me a price quote (price per edited image)
I will pick the top candidates to edit 3 sample photos, which I will use to select the final editor.
**Budget is currently undecided**
