CRPhotography Needs You!

Sat Oct 25, 2014, 6:27 AM
CRPhotography is home to the Photography Community Volunteers and any other members who are involved or interested in photography. We have a lot of new (and exciting!) projects, which means we need you to help us!

However, before we begin, please check out what we will be up to in November! If you have questions about abstract and surreal, or you are an expert/specialist, please go to the blog and let us know!

We have positions for the following:

Photography Monthly Newsletter ~ Admins scouting for news on DeviantART and off DeviantART! Must contribute 10+ links per month.

Photographer of the Day ~ Admins scouting for photographs that deserve to be showcased for the day! Much like the Photography Community Volunteers with Daily Deviations! Please choose a minimum of five categories from the list here.

Gallery Submissions ~ Admins submitting a minimum of two photographs a week to the gallery! We need admins for Abstract & Surreal, Architecture, Commercial, Conceptual, Photojournalism, Still Life, Street, Urban & Rural.

On-Call Specialists ~ You won't need to be an admin in the group. This position is so that we can contact you about photography related matters, be it thoughts, tips, tricks, advice, etc.! If you feel you are a specialist in one aspect of photography or all aspects, and you would be happy to be contacted, this is the position for you!

Bloggers ~ Always in need of more editorials and features! If you have a regular series of blogs in mind, this is the one for you.

If you are interested, please send CRPhotography a note with the subject: Application!

  • What you want to do in the group.
  • Why you think you should be considered.
  • One photography discussion, tutorial, troubleshooting issue, topic etc. that we could tackle.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! :la:

Thank you. :love:
