We are on a constant lookout for talented photojournalists, documentary photographers and production assistants.
After having seen what we do and how we do, do you think you’d like to join us? If yes, please let us learn a bit about your experience as a photographer or production assistant (i.e: translator, interpreter or fixer) first.
We’d like to know your motivation behind the visual media and what is it you’re focusing on mainly as a subject.
Specifically, if you have an ongoing personal project or have been thinking about something, we’d like to know and perhaps offer you the least our mentoring resources.
Do you have a published photo book and if not, would you like to consider working on this matter?
Do you speak fluently English language other than your native language and do you have exceptional organisational skills and have a desire to work with media?
Are you aware of the professional code of conduct and ethics in journalism in general?
If not, we will help you get through, but we’d rather prefer you’ve read it once and have a clear understanding of it.
We and our partner agencies sell news pictures directly to the end-user i.e: newsgathering publications, books and individual writers/bloggers.
If all the above sounds good to you, do you think that you would like to work with VX Pictures as a News and Press Photographer, please explore the tabs of opportunities we have available.
We are also looking for news and press photographers who appreciate and are protective of their content. People we work with retain 100% of their copyright.
We are looking for experienced news photographers to work with us on a contributor basis.
- You will have your own professional camera equipment and a laptop with 4G connectivity.
- You will be able to send edited and correctly captioned pictures quickly and to tight deadlines.
- You will be familiar with FTP.
- This is not a trainee position, we are looking for photographers with experience in the industry.
Specifically, if you’re based in the capital city of ongoing current affairs, which is an interest to the daily newspapers and online newsgathering websites, broadcasters and bloggers, if this sounds good to you, you can join us as a news photographer.
If you’re thinking about joining us as a photojournalist, or project-based documentary photographer, please tell us about yourself by submitting an application form with us.
We offer a freelance contract of 35% versus 65% in favour of the author for exclusive content. We rarely work with non-exclusive content, but if we do, our offer is 40% versus 60% in favour of the author.
We may as well have paid assignments coming up for you. Although we will pay you for the day rate or project, you still retain your copyright five years after completion of the paid assignment.
When you decide to leave VX Pictures (if and when you do) you can ask us to delete all your images from our archives. However, we reserve the right to keep your assignment’s paid work indefinitely after you left. It also means whatever we sell from your paid assignment after those five years, you will still be paid 20%.
We may never sell your work, but if we do, you will make good money.
If you’d like to know how much we sell, try purchasing any of our pictures on our platform.
