It can be difficult to get a good photo of all your loved ones together, but one family are making sure they get the perfect holiday snap by advertising for a personal photographer to travel around the globe with them.

What’s the job?

The anonymous UK-based family is looking for a photographer to travel the world with them for the next 12 months and document their experiences.

The unique role will involve travelling outside of the UK for up to three months at a time and will require attendance at events such as the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco, Mardi Gras in New Orleans and skiing at Val d’Isere.

The family states that they will be travelling to and from their many residences and holiday homes across Europe, America, South America, and Australia.

During these visits, the photographer will be asked to take photos of the family, documenting their lives and experiences.

Should I apply?

The perfect candidate must be suitably qualified, with at least five years’ worth of experience shooting lifestyle images.

Hopeful applicants will also need to go through a rigorous interview process and be subject to a full background check. They will also need to spend a weekend with the family, to make sure the “right chemistry” is there.

The selected photographer will be expected to work up to 10 hours on days of work, but will be given full sick pay and 30 days of holiday.

Perks of the job

The salary for this role is £80,000 for the year, plus travel, food and accommodation expenses.

The successful candidate will be given their own living quarters at all travel locations and will also be given “extensive perks” within the role, something which the family says they’ll discuss in more detail during the interview process.
