Overview

PHOTOGRAPHER

 

The Virginian-Pilot/Daily Press – an award-winning, multiplatform news operation with a growing audience – seeks a photographer with a sharp eye and versatile skill set. This visual journalist will be part of a team covering everything from breaking news to sports and features in a diverse region that’s rich in history, steeped in military pride and indelibly connected to the waters surrounding it.

 


Tribune Publishing is committed to hiring people with diverse backgrounds, voices and visions. Be yourself. Bring yourself. Because that’s the only way we will deliver on our mission to provide meaningful journalism to the diverse communities we serve. We hold ourselves accountable for fostering inclusion and opportunity across race, gender, age, creed, identity and experience. Join us.

 

 

Responsibilities

Here’s why you should work for us:

  • We’re the largest news operation in Virginia, with coverage from Richmond to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That’s a big audience — looking for both statewide and hyperlocal coverage.
  • We aim for ambitious journalism that makes an impact on Virginians’ lives. Our staff features many award winners, including multiple Pulitzer finalists.
  • We are passionate about what we do and are committed to both serving readers and helping our journalists develop new skills. Here you will work with talented editors who encourage you to take chances, grow skills and make a difference.

Qualifications

Here’s what we ask in return:

  • You must have strong news judgment, work collaboratively with reporters and editors,  and have a desire to capture stories swiftly and accurately.
  • You have a great eye, and you know how to get yourself in the right place to capture the big moment.
  • You are comfortable talking with subjects and sources, and you know how to put the people you are taking pictures of at ease – and make ethical decisions about the photos you take.
  • You have the versatility to shift gears from a feature portrait to a college football game to an aerial assignment when big breaking news hits.
  • You can shoot both stills and video (video editing skills are a big bonus), and you master new technology and equipment in a flash.

A college degree is required. At least two years’ experience in daily journalism is preferred.

 

The Virginian-Pilot/Daily Press is a progressive news operation with a focus on communication and collaboration at all levels. Working with fellow reporters, photographers and senior editors is a typical day on the job. Input and creativity is not just welcome, it’s required. In this ever-changing media landscape, a sense of humor also helps.

 

While we continue to work remotely during the pandemic, the best candidate will be able to move to the Hampton Roads area or currently be in market.
