Photographers Wanted

We haven’t checked in on our friends at InsideSTL.com since…ever.  That site, which is almost certainly Saint Louis’ most visited independent media organization, probably doesn’t need much more link love.

What they do need, apparently, is a new photographer.  Besides their entertaining writing staff, it’s pretty clear that photography has played a big role in introducing the site to the community at large, one drunken portrait of a night on the landing at a time.  That marketing tactic, brilliant as it may be, does not come without a cost to InsideSTL.com .

We found this flyer around Webster University, promising work for any student (although it didn’t specify age, I’d imagine 21+) willing to work 2-3 nights a week taking pictures on assignment with a compensation of $60 per night.  The picture quality of this flyer, which assuredly will/should not be used as part of an application for this work, is largely the result of using a cameraphone.  You should send additional queries and your resume to make Contact at insideSTL .com .

UPDATE:  While we were competing over photographs, we’d like to take the opportunity to recognize the winner of our own photo caption contest last week – Adrian, who is the author of An Obsolete Vernacular.  You can check the post for all the entries, knowing full well that we’ll usually pick the nerdiest answer.

  2. i really should refrain from using my unusual paralance any longer. that being said, be careful, link love is contageous because one seeks to spread it.
