Photography Producer

As a photography producer, guided by the photography director, creative director, and executive director of visual media, you will oversee projects from concept to completion while working meticulously with various stakeholders (e.g., directors, managers, stylists, faculty and staff, students, guests, other photographers, and more). You will be a highly visible cornerstone of the visual media photography team, directly contributing to the department's success and the university's largest marketing campaigns. You will make production and creative decisions, strengthen SCAD signature events' reputations, increase SCAD outreach on a national level, and help drive attendance and awareness of the university's unique opportunities. Photography producers have ownership of pre-production and production logistical details, and as a producer, you will also manage multiple teams simultaneously.

In this role, you may interface with the SCAD Presidential Office, Board of Trustees, and other high-profile university stakeholders. You will obtain all needed legal materials and payments from shoots and vendors, draft and gain approval for shoot budgets, and collaborate with the visual media video team on relevant shoots. Among other duties, you will work with the creative director to establish and implement engaging visual aesthetics and brand identity across all SCAD institutional photography; prepare call sheets; research, scout, and assess ideas for requested photos; and serve as on-site producer for assigned live events.

The successful candidate is highly creative with an eye for compelling visuals. Exceptional interpersonal communication skills and enthusiasm are essential, as the position involves working with high-profile artists, shy students, and busy faculty and staff on a regular basis. The candidate should demonstrate strong problem-solving, time management, and project management abilities.
