You love Photoshop and bringing out the final vision of image creation. You are as comfortable collaborating with others as you are working on your own. You know when to be flexible, but always maintain high standards for original concepts and detailed executions. You have a passion for still life and product photography, and appreciate the beauty of an on-white silo image. You are able to manage several projects, and people, at the same time, while not sacrificing quality or impacting deadlines. You can work quickly in a fast-paced e-commerce environment.
