Just a short drive from Atlanta and the mountains, the area offers many recreational, educational and cultural amenities.

Interviews will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Salary is based on experience. Send cover letter, resume and a CD with a good mix of news, feature and sports photos to hr@gainesvilletimes.com or Human Resources, Photojournalist Position, The Times, P.O.
