Photography – Production Opportunity – Oxford University Dramatics

Barbarian Productions, the company behind Oxford’s flagship summer production at the Oxford Playhouse (an original adaptation of Jack London’s classic American novel, ‘The Call of the Wild’), are looking for a skilled photographer to assist with production photography during the four weeks between now and show week.

Commitment can vary from the short-term (sporadic days over the next four weeks, when convenient for you), to one-off days. The first and most pressing of these is this coming Monday (18th April), for which we require a photographer to take headshots of the cast and rehearsal photos that will be used by leading graphic designers John Good Ltd. in constructing the programme. All rehearsals take place in central Oxford, at Magdalen College.

Photographic content will be distributed (with full credits) across the production website, blog, Oxford Playhouse website, in local newspapers and in the programme, which will be seen by thousands of audience members. A selection of the kind of images required on stage and in rehearsal is attached.

This is an ideal opportunity to put expertise to use in a creative context and gain experience working in a theatrical marketing environment. Oxford Drama is fortunate to enjoy one of the highest standards of university-level dramatics in the world, thanks to our access to the full resources of the Oxford Playhouse as a professional, working theatre; taking part in such projects is a rewarding experience and a rare opportunity to broaden portfolios in a unique direction.
