    Job posting... Interested?

    I don't even know where to post this; the US government is looking for a large format photographer. I found this over on LFinfo this morning, but I don't qualify.

    It could be YOU!!! (you have to imagine Uncle Sam's prodigious forefinger searching you out.)

    Cheers,

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    From the link:
    Male applicants must meet the Selective Service requirement
    What does that mean?

    Steve.
    As an American Citizen - Male, one must be signed up with the selective service which means that come draft time, you're eligible.

    This was an attempt, back in the 80's I believe, to make Gen X'ers responsible to their government should the draft be re-instituted. The penalty of being unable to apply for government jobs was/is intended to deter young men from not declaring themselves to the impossibly titled Selective Service at age 18.

    And driver license, at least in my home state of Oregon if I recall correctly. Being only 23, I had to sign this recently when I turned 18 and didn't know it was an option.

    Large format contact prints, eh? I'll bet it was the NPS that bought up the last run of Azo. I know of no other agency that hasn't switched over to digital.

    "...seeking a skilled photographer to produce large-format photographic documentation of historic sites, structures, and landscapes, which include field assignments and advanced laboratory work."

    Someone needs to go wake up St. Ansel...

    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."
