Seasonal High-level Portrait Retoucher (Lincoln Square)

compensation: $20/hour
employment type: part-time

Seasonal High-level Portrait Retoucher desired immediately for Family Photography Studio having an exceptionally busy Fall

Key result desired: to help busy photo studio 12-15 hours a week (split between 2 days) to keep up with demand during its busiest time of year by retouching photos, specifically of kids, dogs, and the humans who love them, using Mac computers.

Key objective: part-time work for 2 days a week now through mid-December (possibly beyond) to assist in portrait retouching, photo/product ordering & packaging, digital file prep for clients, and ideally, simple design work.

Key responsibilities: learn and understand our work flow to maintain timely completion of clients' orders, retouch photos of people and pets with Lightroom and Photoshop as demonstrated by current staff retouchers or in a way that achieves the same results, have good time management to effectively complete orders within a specified amount of time and to the requested degree of competence, take initiative in figuring out problems that may come up to create a workaround if needed.

Other tasks that may be given if in line with employee's skill set or if time allows: design work for marketing projects like posters, social media campaigns, or holiday cards; assist in the photography studio with tasks like vacuuming or steaming backgrounds (this is rarely needed but can come up); and helping clients with order pick-ups.

Schedule would be ideally Thursday 9 am to 6 pm and Saturday 9 am to 3 pm, but has some flexibility for Tuesday 10-7 instead of Thursday.

Business casual attire requested, but it's a fairly laid back environment. You are welcome to use head phones to listen to your own music/audio while you work. Punctuality (arriving to work on time) is a must.

This is the perfect position for someone extremely detail oriented, confident in Photoshop, positive in their overall attitude, who loves to be in a creative, upbeat environment. If you enjoy photography and learning about it, this is a place you can learn even more. If you fit into our company culture, have a great work ethic, and work well with a direct communication style, we can talk about maintaining your position into the new year.

Portfolio OF RETOUCHING SAMPLES (before and after is preferred), cover letter, and resumé required.

We look forward to meeting you!
