Passions: People, Photos, & Driving
Who are we?
JFUERST Photo was lovingly born out of the need for the nexus of excellent photography and affordable prices to the real estate marketplace. There are so many providers that simply will not serve the many needs of their customers. We saw those needs and created a process that works every time.
Empowering ALL agents with access to affordably excellent photography and great service.

How does it work?
You let us know how many days per week you can work and we will schedule shoots onto your calendar. Working for JFUERST PHOTO is a great side income but has some seasonality, so you should have an already established photography business to keep you busy when it's slow. On the days you are not working, you can schedule shoots or meetings. And if you happen to end up with not many shoots on a day you have set aside for us, you can edit your other photography photos on the go, write emails, do the other things you love.
Being flexible is key. You will shoot all over Maricopa County so you must love driving. Enjoy listening to podcasts, music, or audiobooks? Love breaking your camera out every day? Love the outdoors? Then we want to talk with you!
Typically, you can shoot around 3 to 6 shoots a day, 5 days a week if you want! But you may want to keep some weekdays for your own business! We are totally cool with that. We just ask that you give us somewhat consistent availability.
What is the pay?
The pay is per shoot. We base our pay on each shoot taking an average of one hour (although as you finesse your craft, most shoots can be completed in less than an hour - this is because of our unique technique and systems that we have created to help you shoot quickly). The base job pay is inclusive of base travel fees. You do not need to edit your photos. At the end of the day you just have to upload your photos to the JFUERST Photo Head Quarters in Minneapolis. Different types of shoots have different payouts.
JFUERST Photo has managed to create something special. A community where you work. A community of photographers that know and trust the excellent system that has been built.
As a photographer for JFUERST PHOTO you would be a part of an awesome family and a business that is thriving and growing rapidly. We believe strongly in our core values and treat everyone with fairness and respect.

From one of our Photographers:
"Working for JFUERST Photo has been an amazing experience for me all around. One of the core reasons I love working this job is because apart from what I regularly photograph (engagements & weddings) it has opened up a totally different world of photography for me to be successful in while not having to worry about keeping a full calendar of sessions. Shooting Real Estate has been literally one of the funnest and most rewarding jobs of my life. It is the best job I could have asked for for my small business. I have been able to further develop my knowledge of photography while getting paid, chat photography with my skilled, passionate and super co-workers & bosses at any time, have an awesome and flexible schedule, and most excitingly for me, I have been able to narrow down my personal photography sessions to only things I am completely in love with shooting. It's a simple, win win.
On a typical day, I get up early and work on my personal work, or totally sleep in if I want because you can't photograph a house without proper sunlight! Then my day is usually like going on a self guided tour of homes for a few hours. I click on each appointment in my calendar and my GPS leads me to each house. I diligently show up 5-10 minutes early (because I am a fan of over-exceeding expectations), introduce myself to the homeowner or agent, admire and photograph the house, then at the end of the day I simply drop my cards off and bam, day finished. No editing, no delivering, no emailing or working with clients before or after. It's really that straightforward. Then, around 24 hours later I am able to see the finished product in slideshow form and receive instant feedback from the editor. Wether good or constructive, I can make adjustments to my shooting technique if needed right away, otherwise I receive a "go get em tiger" sense of attitude from the office and continue on with my shoots.
I think my favorite part about my job with JFUERST Photo is having the ability to see inside hundreds of homes, all completely different from each other. You know, like some of the houses you drive by and would pay the owner to walk through? Those are some of the houses I get to run around in. As if that wasn't cool enough, I couldn't be more happy with the way I am treated as part of the JFUERST Photo Team. Every suggestion, question, circumstance and concern is taken into consideration and carefully attended to or answered by the owners. They are seriously rockstars and are ALWAYS looking for ways to better any of our experiences with them working for JFUERST Photo. They are kind-hearted, incredibly fair, they both have a great sense of humor, and you can tell that their passion for good business is just as strong as mine. If anyone is looking to extend their career in photography surrounded by marvelous people... THIS is the job for you."
