The Coordinator will then be responsible for finding and prepping all items for photoshoots, helping out our models and photographers during photoshoots, taking care of all the necessary paperwork and cleaning up once the photoshoots are done since it can look like a hurricane went through the studio.

That being said, it is a fun job with a lot of interaction with people and no day is going to be the same as the one before.

  • Maintain cleanliness in the studio, especially the dressing room
  • Work between Multimedia and other departments and project manager to meet photoshoot needs on any particular projects
  • Complete all paper work for Multimedia department: model time cards, expense reports, etc.
  • Order necessary multimedia photoshoot items (e.g. mannequin heads, comic convention items, coffee, make up, hairspray, etc.)
  • Yes. That did say that you have to order mannequin heads. Don’t question it.
  • Shop for additional necessary photoshoot items as needed
  • Assist with new product workflow
  • Research upcoming items and help determine the correct model/mannequin poses and accessories
  • Other duties as assigned. We already mentioned mannequin heads so be prepared for a bit of weirdness.
