Photographer In Residence


Cover photo by Rob Nuti.

We love photography. How could we not, when we're creating some of the coolest tools for photographers in the world. Ever. However, we've been working on these tools for so long now, that we're starting to get a little bit blind about our own products. It's time we got someone involved to help us on the photography side. What do we mean by that? Well, we simply want someone to work closely with us, to explore new and exciting ways of using Triggertrap products.

We're looking for someone who can give the full Triggertrap product-line-up a damn good thrashing, who can help us come up with improvements and adjustments to our current products... And if you're a true w√ľnderkind of epic proportions, who knows, perhaps you'll be able to help us develop our next-generation products, too.

Does that sound like fun? Flippin' right it does!

What does this photo mean? No idea, but how would YOU illustrate Photographer in Residence? With a stick figure with a camera? Hmm, now that you mention it, that would have been a better idea.

You:

  • Are a shit-hot photographer with tons of ideas
  • Love the idea of working in a start-up environment
  • Live and breathe cutting edge photography. You eat HDR for breakfast, high-speed photography set-ups for dinner and wash it all down with a cup of timelapse-ang souchong. (Oh, we went there)
  • Are experimental, inspired, and able to work independently: We'll be more than happy to help you out, of course, but a lot of this will be all you, baby!
  • Are able to dedicate between three weeks and three months to working with us
  • Are a solid communicator, and you're able to explain photography techniques, whether as a blog post or on video

We offer:

  • Full access to all Triggertrap products - including, possibly, some of the ones we haven't released yet
  • A small stipend for working with us
  • Full access to the technical and creative teams at Triggertrap
  • Desk space with us here in King's Cross, London (although you'll probably spend most of your time out of the office, in your studio)

You don't need a degree to be our Photographer in Residence, but a solid photography or video portfolio and a couple of cool ideas for Triggertrap projects would be a mighty fine idea.

Also, we know this is a photography job, but the 'solid communicator' bit is crucial: If you come up with an awesome technique, a great photo, or a cool new use for Triggertrap, we'll probably want you to tell the world about it. If you can't, then this whole exercise won't really work.

To land this gig, send an e-mail to Haje. He's the CEO of the company and he has written half a dozen books about photography. He really knows his shit, so it might be a wise idea to spend a bit of time on your cover letter, and to go out of your way to impress. Did we mention to include a link to your portfolio and LinkedIn? Because that's also a smart thing to do.
