Smartphone Photowalk Guide Job Description – Victoria and Vancouver

 
Are you a wiz at smartphone photography who’s also great with people? 
Do you have experience in the tourism industry, love giving tours of the city you live in and thrive on finding the next best spot to take that ‘perfect’ Instagram pic?
If you answered yes to the above questions, you might be exactly who we’re looking for!!

Vancouver and Victoria Photowalks, a five star rated company on Tripadvisor, is looking for enthusiastic and personable Smartphone Photo-Guides to lead photo walks for our guests during our peak seasons in 2020. While our tours are photography-focused, we pride ourselves on putting fun first and learning second and encourage all our clients to “awaken their inner artist.”

The position involves teaching the basics of photography on a walking tour through an area of Victoria for a two-hour duration. Our clients range from absolute beginners to more intermediate photographers and are keen to capture the essence of our city during their stay.  All of our guides are true advocates and delight in telling everyone fun facts and interesting information about Victoria during our tours. We are representatives not only of our business but Victoria and Canada as a whole.

Photo-Guides are expected to help guests with their own smartphones, as well as demonstrate on their own. Technical knowledge or competence with more than one brand of phone would be a nice-to-have!

Successful candidates will meet the following requirements:

– Fluency in smartphone photography OR experience in the tourism industry and a beyond intermediate level of smartphone photography knowledge with an ability to learn quickly | Priority will be given to those that can share their online photos/portfolio

– Personable, friendly, polite and engaging | Bonus points for being funny/entertaining. This season, our clients are mainly from Australia, will be super fun and love to have a good time!

– Be able to lead a group while keeping track of timing/pacing and remaining flexible to each group’s needs

– Be able to explain and demonstrate smartphone photography concepts in such a way that people of all levels can understand. We’re aiming for people to have the “ah-ha moment” as often as possible!

Pay is $37.50/hour, with bonuses being paid at the end of the season for guides that fulfill the extra requirements,  all of which will be discussed during the interview process. Currently, there are two tours booked per week which will run on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 pm.

If this sounds like you, please email info@victoriaphotowalks.com with a brief bio/intro that states what language(s) you speak, your resume and a link to your portfolio if available. We will aim to get back to everyone who gets in touch.
