San Francisco magazine is looking for a highly fun, creative, intelligent, and resourceful photo editor to join our lean, mean art team. Are you a magazine junkie who looks at that naked photo of Jeff Koons in Vanity Fair, or that New York magazine cover of the wailing baby, or our very own Oakland-inspired homage to Georges Seurat's "Sunday on the Island of La Grande Jatte," and thinks, "Oh my God, yes!!"? Then you should be working at San Francisco, alongside our veteran staff of visual provocateurs and editorial troublemakers.
You will be responsible for directing, producing, and procuring all images in the magazine including front-of-book sections, features, and covers. You'll develop concepts with the editorial and art team; assign projects to both local and regional photographers; and produce and direct a boatload of photo shoots (sometimes upward of 20 per issue). You'll procure styling props; ensure on-time delivery of all image files to our pre-press team; oversee color correction and pre-press process; manage payment and contracts for all contributing photographers; compile a budget for the art department; and manage a comp list for contributing photographers.
But aside from all of that, you'll also be a source of inspiration and a generator of ideas for everything the magazine puts on the page. If you love the art of photography, the craft of magazine making, and the joy of working alongside people as scrappy and smart as you are, then you should apply.
