Production Positions

Production Photographer

About the Position

As part of the Daily Cal’s new production photography team, you’ll capture and edit images of the city of Berkeley and the UC Berkeley campus for both long-term and short-term marketing projects.

Along with working on advertising campaigns and award-winning projects such as the Food and Drink Guide and Media Kit, production photographers also have the chance to build their portfolios and to develop the Daily Cal’s in-house creative agency, INK.

Because the position is brand new, we are seeking applicants who can bring fresh ideas to the table about how to best use photography to engage advertisers and readers.
