About Empire Photo
Founded in 1978, Empire Photography has been the recognized leader in graduation, sports, school pictures, and event photography throughout Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.
Day to Day
No day is the same. You’ll meet at our office on Monroe street, review previous shoots, review the current assignment, and head out to the job. Transportation to the job will be provided in most situations, although a reliable source of transportation is beneficial. You can also meet us at the shoot if you don’t live in Madison.
You will be the face of Empire Photo at our schools, leagues, and other accounts. We expect Empire team members to make picture day enjoyable for the students/athletes and their families, and stress-free for school administrators and league board members.
There is a crew leader on all photo assignments and so as a new hire, you will not be asked to execute an event on your own. School portraits are mostly taken indoors while sport and graduation photos are inside and out. You’ll be trained to handle many different lighting situations. Empire will provide all of the camera, lighting, and backdrop equipment.
Photo assignments can be Monday through Sunday and range from mornings, daytime school hours, and into the evenings. We work hard to spread the shifts out and give everyone the days off they need. We work to accommodate class schedules, vacation requests, and freelance work.
The months of August to November comprise our busy fall season.
Because this position entails working with minors, you will be subject to a background check, and passing the background check will be necessary in order to work for us. Please ask us if you have any questions about this.
Pay: $15.00 to $25.00 – per hour. Opportunities for advancement may be immediately available.
