Are you a die-hard fan of Division III athletics? Do you own a digital SLR camera with a good lens? Are you willing to shoot and upload your photos within a few hours of an event? Can you shoot a couple of events a month through the school year?

Then we might just be looking for you. We’re looking to expand around the country. On the map below, we’re looking for photographers in states where there are NCAA Division III schools, the full color circles are where we currently have photographers, some of them are extremely dense regions (Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles) and we’re looking for a few photographers there.

There’s more to Division III than football. We also cover Mens and Womens Soccer for D3soccer.com, Mens and Womens basketball for D3hoops.com and baseball for D3baseball.com. Starting in October, 2010, we will be covering Division I Womens Ice Hockey and Division III Mens and Womens Ice Hockey for USCHO.com, and we also cover Division I Mens Ice Hockey for CollegeHockeyNews.com

There are a few things you need to know before contacting us:

  1. We have both a flexible deadline and expectations. We expect you to do the editing, uploading of both proof images shortly after the game and the full resolution files within a couple days of the game.
  2. We do not pay per game. You are paid a percentage out of your sales. All of our photographers are paid in this manner and we have been operating this way since 2003.
  3. We do not reimburse mileage, meals or food. You can write those off on your taxes out of your sales next spring.
  4. You are expected to be your own salesperson at events. While we give you resources to help you (shirts, sweatshirts [for purchase], business card designs, marketing on facebook and on our media partner websites) you need to make your sales happen.
  5. We’re a resale outlet for you. We will sell on your behalf, we will provide images to newspapers, schools, other media outlets that come to us.
  6. You own your images. You’re just letting us resell them to make you some extra income and give the fans something to look at and hold on to remember the games by.
  7. This is “At will employment.” And you are a contractor. We will not take taxes out of your sales.
