This posting should be in a creative section but I didnt see any here on BP.

For small, creative, artistic photographer / artist studio currently
located in Far Rockaway.

Looking for a motivated, outgoing and friendly individual.
Must have organizational skills. Interest or background in creativity and/or photography also a plus. Working to help clean & organize space.
Basically glorified babysitter in helping me to stay focused on office work when I would rather be taking pictures etc. =) I need a muse also to help inspire me with my art by having someone else's energy around here. Helping to promote over social media and brainstorming sessions to bring in more work. Maybe even posing for me. I prefer to find someone who connects with my artwork. So email me and show me your interest, those who take time to connect and write about it will be considered first.


Part-time / flexible hrs / $10 per hr - probably 1 day a week During the week (afternoons). Hip, casual, artsy atmosphere.

My work is my life. I have hired friends in the past to help me. I am really looking for someone I hit it off with. For example I hate shopping, (unless we are talking about art supplies and camera gear) so could be just coming along with me so I get stuff I need. etc.

Email thru Facebook might be best. Often CL emails go into spam and get lost

Schwarz Children's Center at the City Museum.

In addition to evaluating each Fellow's individual growth, the Coordinator will be responsible for evaluating the Fellowship program as a whole by creating surveys for the Fellows, Staff, and audiences that the Fellow serves.

Fellows will begin in July 2015. The Coordinator must begin work in April 2015 to structure the training around the Fellows' needs. Compensation is $38,000 for 30 hours a week for fifteen-seventeen months, with a possible year-long extension. Workdays must coincide with the Fellows' work schedule.
