I'm a Professional Pianist and Event DJ based in Milwaukie, OR. I find one of the biggest frustrations in this business is marketing, and the lack of current Photos of various events I do. I'm behind the Piano or DJ Booth so I can't take them myself, and it's often a chore to get ahold of the hired Photographer, if there is one.
I'm looking for an AMATEUR Photographer that does not need pay, and just wants to meet some people, and experience some new things. I'm aware there will be haters that are offended by this, but it's perfectly reasonable to offer an opportunity. You don't have to reply.
When I'm hired for various events, be it Weddings, Receptions, Corporate Events, or even Club Gigs, you will be my first call to join me in helping set-up, but to primarily document the Event with at least a few photos.
I have a small show at a Club this Saturday, and I would try you out there. You aren't required to stay for the whole thing, just join for an hour or two and take some shots or video. Creativity is welcome! Try filters, edit the hell out of the photos, take some random video close-ups of my fingers on the keys, whatever it may be. You have free reign to try stuff out. That is the beauty of entrepreneurialism.
If I can ever give you money, I will. Some shows I get tipped extra and would be happy to share it. And if I grow to trust you and we work well together, it could lead to something where there is consistent pay for each event.
The goal is for me to have a few nice Photos of each event I do, rather than it being simply my word to new Clients that I just did "this great event out at a beautiful venue!"
If this is something that interests you, send me an email telling me about yourself, your age, a few photos that you've taken, your Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn Page, and most importantly, WHY you want to do this.
Thanx. My Website is www.kittaylorweddingsandevents.com, and www.kittaylor.net.
I have no idea how often you will be needed, it just depends on how heavy business is. This month there are 3-4 events I could use you at. One Wedding is in SunRiver, so you could potentially get some beautiful shots.
I'm also going back to school soon probably 1/2 or 3/4 time, so this will probably be a once a week or once every two weeks kind of thing. Possibly less, possibly more.
This is a serious offer, so please only reply if you are truly interested. Thank you!
