Would you like to be part of our network of photographers across the world?
We need photographers from across the UK and beyond.
Zing Pictures is an independent picture agency based in the UK. We source, create news and features content for the UK’s media outlets as well as syndicating pictures worldwide through selected partners.
We are in a position to offer opportunities to photographers to work with us.
Things you will need for us to consider you:
You will have your own professional camera equipment.
You should be familiar with sending pictures directly via FTP directly from wherever you are shooting therefore a laptop and a 3G/4G dongle, MIFI etc is a critical piece of kit you will need to own.
You will be confident in using software such as photomechanic and/or Lightroom and be able to edit caption and send pictures to us on a deadline. We expect to receive breaking news pictures within 20 mins of you shooting them wherever possible.
You will need to have a way of getting around. Car, bus,bike,tractor – of course depending on where you live.
Wish to apply?
To apply, send us a selection of your best pictures by email for us to consider. Around 10 should do it. Make sure they are fully captioned if possible and keep the email under 10 Mb. Dropping the ‘quality’ in Photoshop or similar to around 60% will normally do the trick.
Not a PRO but have some great pictures? No problem, email us with a link to your portfolio and we can help point you in the right direction.
Zing Pictures will market your photographs and pay you top rates.
As well as news pictures we are always looking for current picture stories including animals, celebrities, weather or anything unusual but newsworthy.
Also, why not also let us help you add your stock images to the Zing archive, we know what picture desks are looking for, we market your images for you to bring you extra revenue. We are particularly interested in talking to you if you have aerial photographs or use a quadcopter or octocopter for your photography.
We look forward to speaking with you.
The Zing team.
