Photographer (Senior Producer - Director)

Under the direction of the Photo Librarian, this position is responsible for taking and processing still images and video footage of unique and often difficult subjects—a wide variety of pests (arthropods, vertebrates, plant pathogens, and weeds), pest damage, and pest management practices for use on the UC IPM website and in UC IPM publications and products (both online and in print), such as identification card sets, presentations, ag magazines, short instructional videos for YouTube, and online courses. Subjects may need to be photographed under magnification or need special techniques due to rapid movement.

Workflow involves working with the Cooperative Extension advisors, faculty, and instructional design to determine objectives; researching technical information in areas of pest control, crop production, and plant care; survey locations; then performing photography and videography, editing and cataloging images and videos in a digital database using standardized metadata, tagging, and file naming protocols.
