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!
