Screen shot 2020 07 05 at 4.56.47 pm

Dear Friends,

We're looking for a one-person video/photoshoot for a half-day in the coming weeks. Given the border closures from Hong Kong to Shenzhen, we're flexible on the timing but we'd like to get this series of photo/video shoots off the ground ASAP.

If this is not for you, please feel free to pass this on to anyone you might think would be interested.

We are looking to capture "proof of life" photos and video for a product manufactured in Shenzhen on behalf of a European and US manufacturing group. This shoot is purely for documentary proof, not for any marketing or promotional activity.

Quick shot list:

  • Pictures of the front of the facility
  • Pictures of all of the pallets of the product of interest in the warehouse
  • Video of all of the pallets
  • Pictures of a case of the product with the day's English newspaper clearly showing the date of the inspection.
  • Open up the case (on video) and pull out a bottle of or box of the inventory of interest.
  • Take front and back pictures, also do the same thing with video.


Budget: Let us know your day-rate. This project shouldn't take more than a few hours, but we'll pay for a full-day rate. Travel Expenses are billable.

Equipment: 1 Camera (4K capable). Handheld photos and video is perfectly acceptable. There's no need for extra lighting or stabilization.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact me directly with VIA EMAIL with any questions you might have. We will provide a short-list of candidates to the commissioning company on a rolling basis starting today. We'll close out this assignment by Friday morning, July 10th. PLEASE BE IN TOUCH AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
