Guns.com is in the process of expanding into the online marketplace to provide customers access to a huge inventory of quality new and used guns with a simple, secure purchase that’s sent right to your local Federal Firearm Licensed (FFL) Dealer’s shop.
Our current inventory of used guns (in the 1,000’s) is ready for re-sale, and we are looking to fill two positions - Freelance Ecommerce Photographer and Freelance Ecommerce Photography Editor to join our team on a contract, temporary basis for approximately 6-10 weeks. We will provide the studio/photobooth and equipment. This project will be on-site at our Burnsville, MN warehouse.
This is an excellent opportunity for a graduating photography student, someone new into the field, or even an established photographer passionate about firearms and looking to improve their skills. The high-quality photos taken by this individual will be used across our Ecommerce store and promotional channels. This is for two positions due to the size and short turnaround required for photographing and editing.
