The Asheville Citizen-Times, part of the USA TODAY NETWORK, is seeking a photojournalist, well-versed in stills and video, to join its digital-first newsroom.
The ideal candidate is eager to create compelling images and video, working on quick turns and deeper, impactful stories, both of which will get the community talking and sharing. Daily assignments will vary from football games to restaurant reviews, breaking news and daily enterprise in and around Western North Carolina, allowing this photojournalist to flex creative muscle as well as cover hard news. He or she must be social-media savvy and passionate about visual storytelling.
This photojournalist will also serve as a "video champion" for the Citizen-Times, helping to grow its video audience by working with reporters, producers and other photographers to encourage, critique and plan video efforts.
The Citizen-Times photo team plays an important role in not only visual storytelling but writing, with a weekly photo essay slot and front-page enterprise expected from all members of the team. Strong writing skills are a must.
Weekend and evening work is expected, based on assignments.
Asheville is a vibrant community in the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, and is home to some of the nation's best mountain biking, hiking and kayaking. It's also known as a top restaurant destination and boasts more craft breweries per capita than anywhere else in the nation.
