The lifestyle of a creative can be bloody hard at times. Satisfying your soul with artistic and pleasurable projects, whilst generating an income that can afford new equipment, weekly rent, credit card bills and vital holidays to warm tropical islands, is a very real problem that most of us creatives have, or will experience, at some stage throughout our weird and wonderful careers.
We’re not going to lie…the above dilemma is what lead us in part to start our company, The White Tree.
What is The White Tree?
The White Tree is a group of like-minded photographers, filmmakers and musicians who have started a wedding based company that offers these three key creative services for “modern weddings”.
What do we mean by “modern weddings”, is that even a thing?!
We believe there is such a thing as a “modern wedding”. It basically defines an industry and a discerning bride and groom that now actually gives-a-shit about the creative elements of the BIG day. Yes yes, we are well aware of the stigma associated with weddings and we know that in terms of photography, you wouldn’t think that some of the best talent in these fields are now getting involved in the Australian wedding industry…but it’s quite true. If you don’t believe us, check out the likes of Hello May and Hitched magazine, the One Fine Day bridal fair and blogs such as Polka Dot Bride. You’ll quickly see that all sorts of providers in the industry are delivering impressive work with genuine artistic integrity.
Why does this sound like a pitch, and why are we trying to convince you that weddings are cool?
Well, we are setting our sights high and are looking for some of the very best photographers to join our crew. We are aware that the initial idea of shooting weddings seems like a step down from fashion, advertising and documentary photography. Obviously in some respects it is, but in other areas, it is actually incredibly challenging, rewarding, creative and lucrative.
What skill set are we looking for?
We are looking for Filmmakers who posses the following experiences and skills (practically and attitudinally):
And what are we offering?
If you meet the above criteria, are passionate about people based documentary photography, like the look of The White Tree’s brand and style and have a keen attention to detail – then we’d love to hear from you!

We’re a digital service design agency, and we need your help.
Hailing from Surry Hills, we're a smart, helpful and friendly team wholly committed to bringing our clients visions, ideas and (yes) dreams to life. A tight-knit crew of 10 including strategists, designers, developers and producers, we sport firm handshakes and an eye for detail.
We have a great culture and long, solid relationships with clients that we genuinely care about. We work across the arts, government, tertiary education, entertainment (not the churn stuff), NFP and certain specialist professional services.
Here’s a recent testimonial from one of our clients, University of Sydney:
“What I really like about working with Picket Studio is not only how well they understood the entirety of the project but also how flexible and responsive they were throughout. The project felt like a collaboration of ideas, made sense in every way and we couldn't be happier with it.”

So, where do you fit in?
One of our dearly beloved designers is going on a well deserved break, and we need someone to step up to the plate and take over the reigns (an ability to unmix metaphors is a bonus).
This will be a short stint of:
Helping us document the outcomes of research and workshops in the form of Personas, Service Blueprints, User Journeys, etc.
Capture the concepts and recommendations of the project team in Workflows, Wireframes, Content Architectures, etc.
Evaluating, auditing, testing and reviewing prototypes and recommending improvements for the implementation team.
Generally having a reasonable time and getting along with nice people without being overstressed or undervalued (this stuff is important to us).
Finally, although this ad is about filling an immediate need, there is absolutely room for a longer term arrangement if we like the cut of each others’ jib.
If you think this role would suit you, let’s talk: [..]. We’d appreciate if you could include for us any materials that can help us understand who you are and what you do.
