Company: Casper Star Tribune
Visual Journalist
Job Status:  Full-time
Ad Expires: 
February 11, 2013
Job ID: 1460381


The Casper Star-Tribune, the newspaper of record for Wyoming, seeks a visual journalist to document the people, issues, and wide open spaces of our state. 

Adventurous souls take note: There are few wild places left in the United States. And they are here. Don’t be surprised if your first months on the job find you standing on an oil rig, exploring a mountain range, and ringside at a rodeo.  

Our focus is on traditional still photojournalism. It’s what our readers want, both in print and online, and if you’re reading this it’s your passion as well. On the print side, strong photography is rewarded with strong design. Online, our audience responds well to photo galleries and our use of social media, and the successful candidate must be willing to take point on both. 

The ideal candidate will have a bachelor’s degree and 1-3 years of daily newspaper experience, but recent graduates with strong portfolios and internships under their belts will be considered. 

Technical proficiency in digital photography, an eye for unique images, and a commitment to accuracy are essential. The ability to shoot and edit digital video when needed is also required. Collaboration with other staff members is encouraged, but the ability to work independently is key given our large coverage area. 

The ability to work flexible hours including nights, weekends and holidays is required, along with occasional overnight travel. Newsroom employees must have reliable transportation. Digital camera equipment will be provided. 

Casper, population 55,000, is located in central Wyoming four hours north of Denver and five hours from Yellowstone National Park. Recreational and cultural opportunities abound. The newspaper offers a competitive starting salary and benefits package including health insurance, paid holidays and vacation, and 401(k). 

Applicants should send a portfolio, resume, and letter of interest to Alan Rogers, Visual Editor, Casper Star-Tribune, P.O. Box 80, Casper, WY 82602. You may also direct digital application materials to note that large attachments may be automatically rejected by the server). No phone calls please. 

The Casper Star-Tribune and parent company Lee Enterprises are Equal Opportunity Employers and maintain a drug-free workplace.
