Now Hiring: Photographers
October 09 2017
Team Liquid competes in a multitude of games all around the world, and a picture is worth a thousand words. We are searching for independent contract photographers to help us capture all of our crucial moments: the march through a crowd of fans, an arena erupting with cheers, intense stage moments, the trophy in our hands, and everything in between.
We are interested in hiring 2-3 photographers for all major regions (North America, Europe, and Asia), for events that our teams will attend. Photographers will be hired on a per-event basis, and these events may include tournaments, conventions, appearances, and sponsor activations.
Team Liquid will provide travel and accommodations for contract photography work exclusive to Team Liquid. Should you desire to work for other organizations during the event, then travel and accommodations will not be provided.
