The Chicago Reporter seeks to fill two part-time Photography Fellowship positions (three days/week)  for 2014-15, one of which will be a minority fellowship. The goal of the minority fellowship program is to encourage diversity in the newsroom and to support college students and recent graduates from historically underrepresented groups. The fellowships are 12 months long, and begin in June or September.

The Reporter is an award-winning investigative magazine that has been reporting on issues of race and poverty since 1972. The magazine publishes short- and long-form articles that are repackaged and distributed across multiple platforms—print, Web, radio and TV—with nearly a dozen collaborative partners, including NBC5 Chicago, Chicago Public Media, Chicago Now, and The Huffington Post.

Photography Fellows will accompany reporters on their investigations and shoot a variety of photos for print and online. Photography fellows will also produce independent photo essays, slideshows and videos; and other duties as assigned. Successful candidates will be strong visual storytellers and have training in still and multimedia photography, as well as a solid understanding of editing and preparing photos for web and print distribution. Some evening or weekend work may be required. A monthly stipend of $500 will be provided.

  • Experience shooting events and people
  • Must have DSLR camera and other necessary equipment
