Introducing 500px Assignments!

The Studio team at 500px is excited to announce the launch of Assignments - enabling our community members to earn money from photography, work with global brands and further develop skills by shooting for custom photography projects.

What is Studio?

The Studio team at 500px work together with global clients and photographers to create quality content for creative projects. Our team is comprised of production, creative styling, communications and product team members, many of whom are multi-disciplinary, working photographers who can offer unique insights in the creative process. We serve as the connection point between clients and photographers to ensure that the creative vision of clients are met and provide training, guidance and support to our photographers throughout the project to ensure the success of all shoots by Studio photographers.

What are Assignments?

Assignments are location-based jobs available to select photographers, primarily sourced from the 500px community, to fulfill the photography needs of diverse clients, varying across photography styles and levels of expertise.

How does this work?

Approved 500px Studio photographers will have the ability to select from available Assignments and time slots online via 500px, allowing for control over location and number of Assignments to fulfill. Once approved for a project, we will provide photographers with a specific style guide for each project, as well as full details on the requirements for submission of work. Photographer eligibility is reviewed on a per project basis and new projects are added regularly with locations globally.

How do I sign up to become a 500px Studio photographer and participate in Assignments?

If you have been approved as a Studio photographer but there are no current projects in your area, you will be added to the roster of approved photographers and receive communications from the Studio team to keep you up to date on upcoming projects as well as tips and strategies for freelance photographers.
