I am a real estate agent who needs someone to take pictures of homes in the Nassau and Suffolk area (wwww.BrianSilvestry.com) I work with deadlines so I need someone who is very reliable, reachable through email, or better yet text messaging and has a flexible schedule.
I will email you an assignment with an address and you will need to go there and take 5 pictures of the exterior of the house. After that using www.shutterfly.com I will need you to email them to me. That is all. I will pay you per each assignment completed $12. It will not take more than a hour including drive time there and back and uploading the pictures.Occasionally I will need you to take pictures of the interior of the house as well but that is pretty rare.
You do not need to come to our office or anything. I will pay you at the end of the week using either paypal or I may send you a check.
If you feel you can do this position, please send me a resume, I do need someone right away to start.
What you need to do it is to be reliable, have your own digital camera, be able to complete work on deadline and short notice and have a phone that supports text messaging. I will email or more likely text you an assignment and I will need it to be done as soon as you can. It’s better if you can do it that day but also okay if you can complete it by early the next afternoon. “
Wow real estate photography is a tough business in NY! I notice the ad was posted on 5/18/2007 almost a month ago. Wonder why no one has jumped on it? Drew’s comments are:
“I don’t know about you, but out here on the east coast our cars run on
gasoline. I filled up Sunday,$77.50 for 20 gallons…. $12 wouldn’t
cover the damn tolls into Long Island much less the gas…..
Tell me is it Taboo to ask what people are charging for their services?
I’m not shooting architectural, for magazines. I shoot houses for sale
and property for rent. I can’t expect more than $75-$100 an hour and
when it boils out before taxes with gas, tolls, cd’s, etc Im down to
$50, take out 40% for the government, then health care… well you get
my point…. “
Thanks Drew for the link to this ad. Drew thinks he won’t apply for this job! Anyone else?
