Freelance Photo Editor

Portola Plush Co. – Posted by malouieAnywhere


Job Description

Portola Plush Co. is a small startup that creates innovative plush character toys with veteran artists and designers from Apple, Disney, and Pixar.

We’ve produced factory prototypes, tested them with kids (who really love them), and are gearing up for our launch. That’s where you come in.

We are seeking a Photo Editor who specializes in preparing photography for ecommerce. The primary help we need is with creating alphas: subtracting a white background from the professionally taken photos of our plush animal products, without leaving ghosting or blurred edges around the products. We would use the edited photos in ecommerce and on product packaging, sometimes layered on top of other artwork – so your editing needs to be seamless. You would use Photoshop, Lightroom, or other professional grade photo editing software to edit photos.

You should have 5+ years experience in editing photos professionally, and your hands should be as fast as lightning.

Our main studio is located in Portola Valley, Silicon Valley, CA, but working remotely is fine with us.

In your email to us, please specify:
1/ Your hourly rate
2/ Your estimated availability for the next 3 months (June through August)
3/ Examples of photos where you created alphas (removed the background from), along with a mention of how long you took to edit each photo. Please include attachments, links, etc.
4/ Your credentials (resume, or your LinkedIn)

Please send your email to Marissa Louie (CEO):
