W E D D I N G S + E L O P E M E N T S + L I F E S T Y L E
IF YOU'RE HERE, THEN YOU KNOW I AM ON THE HUNT FOR MY TEAM! I'M LOOKING FOR SOMEONE SERIOUS, RELIABLE, HAS FLEXIBILITY, IS TEACHABLE, SOCIABLE, AND ABOVE ALL - IS KIND.
a little about me..
WEST TEXAS + ANYWHERE
I'm a born and raised Midlander and I'm very proud of my home town. So don't hate on me.
I'm self taught in all things photography and I take my career very seriously. At the same time, I'm not a super serious person for the most part. I love to laugh and make others laugh and I can be pretty silly quite a lot. Sarcasm is one of my languages, but all in good fun. I value my faith, my family time, my friendships, my clients and my Sundays. You'll very rarely catch me working a Sunday because that day is strictly for church and my family. I appreciate reliable people who do what they say they're going to do, and those who take initiative. And let me just be honest when I say, I absolutely recognize an honest soul. I don't care much for small talk but instead, real connection and relationships and I absolutely don't like to waste my time. Lemme just be clear about that.
JOIN THE TEAM
Be more than just
Requirements & Qualifications
This person should expect to train and learn with me for about 2-3 months as an intern. That means most likely weekly- bi-weekly meetings to learn. Whether taking notes, learning the camera, or practicing taking photos, maybe even attending sessions to practice and shoot, possibly even edit.
MUST be at least mediocre-skilled in their camera, who knows what they're doing, understands lighting in their camera. Is comfortable shooting outdoors and is decently comfortable with shooting indoor. OR someone who can learn fast!
Must have their own DSLR camera and at least one prime lens. For reference, I use a Canon 5D Mark iii, a sigma 35 1.4 lens and a 50mm 1.2 canon lens. The quality of your equipment needs to be somewhere along these lines. Also the possibility of buying a flash in the future.
MUST be flexible and able to make bi-weekly meetings (possibly during the week before 4 pm, or maybe some Saturdays). Also must be able to attend shoots. Most are in the evenings. Hardly ever do I shoot on Sundays.Ideal for those who don't have full-time jobs and if have kids, that they're in school. Also ideal for if you have children, you have spouses who can be home with children during sessions.
DOES THIS SOUND LIKE
IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU, FILL THIS OUT BELOW AND I'LL REACH OUT IF I THINK YOU COULD BE A GOOD FIT. IF I REACH OUT TO YOU, THE NEXT STEP WILL BE A FACE-TO-FACE INTERVIEW. WE'LL MOST LIKELY MEET AT A COFFEE SHOP DURING THE WEEK BEFORE 4 PM OR ON A SATURDAY.
IF YOU DON'T HEAR BACK FROM ME, PLEASE DON'T TAKE IT PERSONALLY AND KNOW THAT I APPRECIATE EVERYONE WHO HAS TAKEN THE TIME TO APPLY FOR THIS POSITION! IF I CAN HELP IN YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY JOURNEY, I'D LOVE TO REMIND YOU THAT I OFFER MENTORSHIP SESSIONS! GO AFTER YOUR DREAMS!!
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO BE PART OF
P H O T O G R A P H Y
Learn what it's taken me over 15+ years to learn. My goal is to teach you what I know and have you be able to take photos without me beside you. I want to teach you to be super comfortable in your skill of being a photographer in all aspects. That means being comfortable with your camera, comfortable with people and different types of shoots, and even editing!
FAMILY & CULTURE
I want to create a family within Christina Chavez Photography and eventually make it Christina Chavez Photography & Co. I want a team that grows together, has fun together, encourages one another and helps each other out! I can already imagine the fun get-togethers and friendships we'll be making within this team! Can you see it? I can see it!
TALK MONEY TO ME
Get paid!! After your internship to make sure you're the right fit, you'll be getting paid a percentage of each session you shoot or assist with. We'll narrow down all the details when you join the team though.
