In 1941, legendary photographer Ansel Adams began working for the US Department of the Interior to shoot large format photos of National Parks and other notable locations out in the great outdoors.
Guess what? The same job opening has appeared again: the National Parks Service is looking to hire a black-and-white large format photographer, and the salary is up to $100,000 per year.
A new job listing at USAJOBS shows that the National Park Service of the Department Of The Interior is looking for someone to fill an opening with the title “Photographer, GS-1060-11/12.”
The full time job has a salary range of $63,722 to $99,296 per year, and is based out of Washington, DC. It requires a great deal of traveling (up to 5 to 10 nights per month, the listing says), and is only available to US citizens.
In terms of job duties, the photographer will be tasked with shooting large-format documentary photos for the Library of Congress, developing photographic guidelines and standards, producing exhibition quality prints, evaluating photographic submissions, and making presentations about the photo collection.
