Oyster.com, a hotel research website providing expert reviews and photos, is looking for a freelance photographer in Bristol to join their team. As a photographer, you will travel to hotels in your home town and surrounding region to tour, photograph, and assess them.
What You’ve Done
- You’re a professional photographer. It’s not just a hobby for you: You’ve been contracted and paid for your work. Perhaps you’ve shot weddings, breaking news, real estate, restaurants and hotels, and so on, though there’s no “one size fits all” for this role.
- Bonus points if you’ve travelled extensively and stayed in a ton of hotels, but it’s not required.
There are many photo libraries on the internet and many of them have images of older people. But Greystock believe that a very high proportion of those images are from overseas and can look out of place in UK advertising, marketing material and news features.
It is frustrating for advertisers or publishers to have to rely on stock images which can actually work against them because they lack authenticity and credibility. Greystock’s aim is to ease that frustration by providing a whole library full of relevant images.
So if you’re a photographer with pictures of Brits at home or abroad, please contribute them to Greystock.
