Job opening: The Post-Crescent

PHOTOGRAPHER/VIDEOGRAPHER
Located in Appleton, WI

There is no substitute for high-quality visual storytelling in news media.

The audience demands it in more variety than ever before. Print displays, photo slideshows, videos and social media postings all help create engaging reader experiences.

Post-Crescent Media has long treasured photography and videography talent. Some of the very best photographer/videographers in the country have worked here, and we are searching for someone equally skilled to join a team of two award-winning journalists.

This role demands high command of both photo and video techniques through sophisticated craftsmanship. Our goal is to inform, engage and entertain our audience across multiple platforms.

Our photographer/videographers work with a content coach, planning editors, reporters and fellow photographers to improve the quality of our content and shape storytelling that will meet audience interests and needs. Daily assignments are certainly part of this job, but so, too, are opportunities for deep enterprise project work.

Exceptional core photojournalism skills are needed, of course, including expertise in photo/video cameras, lighting, computers and software.

Post-Crescent Media is not a traditional news operation. Our growing focus is on creatively and strategically delivering compelling news content on desktop, mobile and tablet platforms. At the same time, the newspaper remains a high priority in a marketplace where a top-notch, hands-on print product is important to our nation-leading audience penetration.

All of our journalists build individual brands as community experts in their beats. Use of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social media to engage a fan base is critical.

You must be able to work in a self-directed environment, continuously interact with the audience and be willing to improve each and every day.

Post-Crescent Media is part of Gannett Co., which owns 82 newspapers including USA Today, and Gannett Wisconsin Media, a network of 10 daily news operations in central and east-central Wisconsin. We’ve been proud to earn numerous Gannett “Awards of Excellence” and repeated designation as Daily Newspaper of the Year in the Wisconsin Newspaper Association’s “Better Newspaper Contest.”
