Creating something fresh, inspiring and captivating is hard to accomplish. Some people are designed to capture those fleeting moments in life that remind us of the past and give hope for the future. UTW is looking for the next driven and motivated lover of all things Tulsa to grab a camera and start shooting.
Sure, butterflies and lush landscape make great artwork, but trekking out to catch that great shot of Tulsa's newest up-and-coming band is a lot more fun. If you're new to the area but good with a camera, what better way to find and explore Tulsa's best-kept secrets?
Any given day, we might ask you to run by a new restaurant on opening day to catch a diner stuffing his or her face, hit up the BOK Center to catch the crowds flooding in for the next rock show or maybe stop by the Tulsa Performing Arts Center to capture this week's hottest gallery opening.
UTW has paved the way for some of the area's greatest photographers, and we're all about building up new talent. Michael Cooper and Jeremy Charles, two very sought after T-Town photographers, each submit work to Tulsa's favorite entertainment weekly. Flip through this issue, and you're bound to find their work floating around.
Talent can only be discovered if you get out of your comfort zone and give it a shot. The experience of working for a fast-paced, city-infused news source is a great way to build experience and put that college knowledge to work. We're hiring photography interns and are looking for the perfect fit.
On top of seeing your work displayed for the entire city to view, you get to meet some of Tulsa's most interesting personalities. Our "Curtain's Up" issue is on the horizon, and we're going to need some great photos of our featured guests, though we can't say who just yet. We could send our editorial staff out to get that great shot, but, as it turns out, not everyone who is great with words is also good with a camera. No experience is necessary, but we would like to see what you can do.
Here's a hint: Just because your mom says that she really likes your pictures of her petunias doesn't necessarily mean photography is your cup of tea. Creativity is a must, and a passion that would drive you to lug a camera up 15 flights of stairs and hang over a balcony (safely, of course) to get that perfect photograph is something we're looking for around here.
We understand how important it is to build a great portfolio and the excitement that comes with seeing your work in print. With such an outstanding history of great photographers roaming our offices, we're betting the next great will come through our doors anytime now. Waiting will only give those other mediocre artists a better chance at fulfilling our needs. So quick, grab your computer, upload some of your best shots and send us an email.
If you're interested in building a portfolio with Tulsa's premier arts and entertainment weekly, send your résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 918-592-5550. Don't take too long -- we're waiting for you.
