Action Photographer Vacancy

GlobalShots Action Photographer

The ultimate opportunity – work and play for a summer in the sun with GlobalShots photography!

Like most great companies, GlobalShots was born from passion. Founder Jay Haysey, a long time windsurf instructor, decided in 2007 to marry his two passions : water sports and photography. From that moment, the GlobalShots brand has exploded into the world of extreme sports coverage. A well deserved reputation for the highest quality images has quickly established itself, and the company’s knack for social networking has seen this reputation steadily grow.

Have you got what we’re looking for? An eye for an outstanding image, an individual style and a sense of fun and adventure? Want to have your photos seen by thousands?

GlobalShots are looking for a refreshingly different photographer with a personality to match to join our ever growing team.  GlobalShots is an exciting photography and media company, making its mark in the water sports and events photography world. We are looking to add another Refreshingly Different photographer to the team, starting with a contract for a season in beautiful Vassiliki, Greece.

You’ll be working alongside (and photographing) some of the world’s biggest water sport heroes, in one of the most stunning locations in Europe. You’ll experience a fun filled season working closely with one of the beachfront water sport centres, photographing clients of all abilities & ages on the water, maintaining a great working relationship, and enjoying the most of what the village and island has to offer. The job includes not only photographing clients on the water, but capturing every aspect of the club and the village, whilst making yourself available and representing the brand. You will promote and sell GlobalShots images regularly in the centre, as well as occasionally covering local events, parties and festivals.

Please attach your CV & portfolio to info@globalshots.co.uk

25% off – Windsurf Coaching DVD

25% OFF LIMITED TIME ONLY – Check in the shop

GlobalShots team riders Colin ‘Whippy’ Dixon and Marco Wedele have teamed up to bring you their ultimate new windsurf instructional DVD. The idea behind it is to bring different angles to the sport, to perhaps re-think the way you learn a maneuver. They aren’t re-designing the wheel, but what they are doing is using all the modern tools we have available to help you visualize the move better and in turn learn faster.

The Flymount

The original action mount!

Flymounts were the world’s first camera mount designed specifically for action photography, and are now used by TV crews, pro photographers and athletes across the globe.

The unique system works with virtually ANY camera on the market, giving a bomb proof attachment to roll bars, bike frames, handle bars, windsurf masts and any other tubular object.

Quality.

Flymounts are made from glass reinforced Nylon 6-6, and marine grade stainless steel, to ensure unbeatable resistance to sunshine, saltwater and extremes of temperature.

Performance.

Weighing just 166g (5.85oz), Flymounts are one of the lightest mounts on the market today, allowing our customers to film without feeling the weight of a heavy mount on their kit.

Security.

To prevent movement and equipment damage, the jaws are lined with protective, hard wearing urethane. All Flymounts are supplied with a high quality braided polyester lanyard, and for GoPro customers we make a quick release adapter, giving the strongest possible connection between camera and mount.

INCLUDES FLYMOUNT & GOPRO ADAPTER

Wed 5th – Quality clips, Team slowride, King of the Wesh, Globalshots, Kings Cup and Team QSW

Overnight it looks like we’ve had two new videos drop in to our inbox. Both are really nice edits but the first is certainly worth the ten minutes of viewing time. We catch up with the Estonian windsurfing team with a look at their time on Fuerteventura this summer. These guys are well known for spending months and months in one spot and if you get a chance to watch them from the beach their power, style and progressive approach to freestyle is right up there. Introducing Chris Kalk, Tony Mõttus and Sten Aava, the members of team Slowride.

This second video is also of a very progressive nature, Julien Taboulet is certainly pushing the park side of windsurfing with kickers and sliders at his centre in Leucate. Recently he opened the doors to the public with a free competition to become the King of the Wesh. Well the final video has just dropped and the action is outstanding.

Moving on, have you ever wondered what it must be like for the photographers when shooting some of this action? More specifically, how the photoshoots work when they are underway in Maui. Well Jay Haysey has released the inside scoop for us. Here we get to sit on the shoulders of the Globalshots founder and go for a ride into the surf at Hookipa Beach Park.

Now we head back over to Thailand after reporting about the Kings Cup yesterday. Well Day four is now complete and with it the round up video of the action from the Starboard Phantom 295 fleet.

The last two videos come from Team QSW who are well known for the caravanning. Just a shop, these guys have a setup that even puts some of the UK’s brand demo vans to shame well in the following two articles and videos you get a good look at what it is all about.

Inside a top windsurfer’s Bailey Pegasus caravan the report.

Bailey Caravans goes windsurfing at Weymouth Speed Week the report.

That’s about it for this morning but tune back in later as we have plenty more quality action to come…
