Open call for Photographers

Culture Crux is actively looking for technically strong, talented portrait/event/photographers and photojournalists who have an independent vision to bring to the table, but can still solidly work within the confines of assignment based work.

Culture Crux is an an independent arts and culture website that aims to inspire, nourish, and inform our readers with intelligent, in-depth interviews with emerging and established NYC based and International artists, filmmakers, fashion designers, writers, musicians; as well as art, music, book and film reviews. The site also includes a curated list of art openings and coverage of cultural events happening in New York City.

Although we are solely published digitally, our content is targeted towards people who actually take part in art and culture, and not just through the medium of technology. We aim to encourage readers to be inspired to participate and engage with our content, as well as in the world, and with other like minded people, first and foremost.

As the chief photo editor, I am looking to recruit some technically solid, reliable, film and digital photographers capable of quick turn around, to shoot various things for the magazine, primarily artist portraits and events. No prior professional experience necessary; I am willing to take you under my wing. Just be a solid snapper. At this time we are all unpaid, as Culture Crux is still in its early stages (only 3 months old). At this early juncture, it is more a labor of love for myself and our writers/editors, and a forum to display our own writing and images. We can however offer press passes to most events.

Please email samples of your work, and at least 1 professional recommendation (school instructor recs is fine) to:
