Student Team - Photographer

Join our Student Team for 2022/23 and gain experience in event photography, documenting our varied programme of arts events and activities.

Have you got a passion for photography? Would you like to develop your skills and have the opportunity to photograph a wide range of events? Then why not join our Student Team as our Student Photographer for 2022/23.

We have a vacancy for at least one photographer on our Student Team. 

What does the photographer do?

You will attend LU Arts events and other University/LSU events as required to take photographs. This may include arts and crafts workshops, live performances, rehearsals and exhibitions. Most of these events will take place in the evenings with some occasional weekend work. We will use your photographs on our social media channels, on our website and in marketing materials produced by LU Arts. Loughborough University’s wider marketing team may use them too.

What skills/experience do I need?

You will need to have your own camera and equipment and be skilled enough to take high quality photographs in a range of environments. Experience in taking photographs at live performance events is desirable. You should also have good communication and interpersonal skills as you will need to speak to a range of people at our events including workshop leaders, performers and audience members.

What are the benefits?

You will earn £10.65 per hour for any work you complete for us. You will also gain key skills and experience in event photography and working for an arts organisation, which will support your future employability. 

Hours are casual, as and when required but mostly in the evenings. We will usually ask you to cover at least two live performance events and one workshop per term, but there is not a guaranteed or minimum number of hours. 

Who can apply?

This opportunity is open to all current students (UG, PGT and PGR) based at the East Midlands campus; it does not matter what subject you are studying but it would be an advantage to have a demonstrable interest in the arts. You should expect to still be a student at Loughborough until the end of the academic year 2022/23 in order to be eligible for this role.
