Photographers - you gotta love 'em

This is on NYC Craigslist right now - probably will get Akbar and Ahmed's heart a beating, but, sorry, you gotta move to a place where rent is 2 grand for a closet.

Photographer Looking for Digital/Photoshop Ass't-32-40 hours per week (Union Square)

Assistant must have strong working knowlege of Photoshop on Mac Computers. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE EXCELLENT PHOTOSHOP RETOUCHING SKILLS , YOU NEED NOT APPLY.The majority of the photographic retouching is on architectural files as well as some portrait files. Assistant must be organized, well-spoken, self-motivated, reliable, easy to get along with, and have the ability to multi-task in a busy office environment. The job requires 32-40 hours a week (weekdays only). The pay is $15 per hour. Will train and hire immmediately. If you are in school, part-time or full-time do not apply. Perfect job for someone who is looking for a valuable experience in the photo industry and wants to learn the ins and outs of photography as a business. Please attach your resume to the body of the letter. Will not open attachments. Thanks!


Betcha some of them would vote for slave labor again.

The first thing about comedy is timing, and that reply from pixartindia has got to be classed as comic genius.

Re: Photographers - you gotta love 'em

printers are doing the same thing these days, they want you to know all the CS3 apps related to printing, you have to know how to color correct, trap, make plates, page assembly, preflight, MS word, excel, and a bachelors degree would be nice as well and you have to have prior experience so you can make 30k a year...

Ouch!

As much as I hate to admit, this ad is still better than all the ads I've read in L.A. None of them offers more than $12 here. I came across this one ad that required the retoucher to have extensive experience in PHP programming while paying $10 per hour. Ads like that irritate me more than dealing with traffic in L.A.

On the other note, pixartindia is the perfect example of some posters here that don't bother to read or read the posts in their entirety before replying.

You gotta admire his enthusiasm, though. Reminds of a dog I had once. Say "out?" once, and he's be out of a deep sleep, right at the door, wagging his tail.

Poor Pixart, he's a good guy, just eager to get some extra experience, but yeah the timing on that was perfect!

i live in NY and Craigslist is teh WORST! there are some many postings looking for extremely underpriced retouching for superior work, or they just blatently want retoucher to be labeled as a photo assistant, or an intern. Dont get me wrong, retouching is still an art and there have always been apprentices, but COME ON!
