Freelance photographer

My business would like to give a real-world commercial job opportunity to a student in the Photography program.

I run the US Marketing department at Mirae Asset Global Investments, a global financial services firm. We need studio-style portraits (headshots) of several senior executives for general use in our company’s communications. Your school’s reputation for excellence in the visual arts led me to seek out this department and ask for your help in identifying a qualified candidate.

Our office is located in midtown Manhattan. We will provide transportation for our executives to meet a student photographer at a studio, on-campus or elsewhere. The student will be responsible for providing all necessary equipment, lighting, backdrops, digital media, software, etc. The only deliverable my company will need is a high-resolution, print-quality digital image with basic retouching.

To be clear, our proposal is for a paid engagement, hiring a student to photograph one executive at first. If mutually agreeable, we will consider engaging the same student to shoot additional headshots. In addition to receiving payment, the student will have the rights to include the photo in his/her portfolio. Moreover, I will personally write a letter of recommendation for the student on behalf of Mirae Asset in acknowledgment of a job well done. Our company is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Please forward my contact info to a student who may be interested or feel free to post this message where interested students can see it.
