Creative Producer/Director of Photography

We're looking for a motivated Creative Producer/Director of Photography to join our in-house creative team at French West Vaughan.

Do you excel at telling stories through the lens of a camera? Are you just as comfortable on set, as you are behind an editing station? Do people say you have an amazing eye and a great personality? If so, then we should talk.

We’re looking for a creative producer, visual storyteller, photographer and videographer all wrapped up on one motivated package. You can direct talent, and they love working with you. You can retouch your images, edit your footage and select the perfect audio to tie it all together into amazing content. You understand this content may live in a multitude of places, from TV to IG, and you know how to craft and export the best execution for each. You live to catch the light at just the right moment. To lie on a dusty floor, climb a ladder or stand on the hood of a car, just to get that perfect shot. You know gear, how to use it and where to rent more of it if needed. If a production needs another hand, you know who to call. If a co-worker needs an assist, you’re there. And in the end, you’re just as passionate about the quick-turn sales video as you are the long-format brand film.


If you love this stuff as much as we do, and can’t believe that you get to do this for a living, then this could be the job for you. And we can’t wait to hear from you and see your reel.
