After you've passed the application process, you will be added to our network of Freelance Photographers and we can start sending you assignments. Photo projects will always vary in size and style as well as price, and Freelancers will always retain the right to accept or reject any assignment based on their expectations. The details of each assignment will be sent via a ‘Statement of Work’ (essentially a job brief), which outlines all expectations of the project in question and the stylistic requirements will be included in a style guide.
About the Statement of Work
A Statement of Work is a document that formally outlines the details of a photography assignment. It will be sent to you once you've been successfully added to Booking.com’s network of Freelance Photographers and have accepted an assignment from us.
A number of things are included in the Statement of Work:
- Expectations of the assignment, including the deadline, the rate, and the location(s)
- Details of the assignment, including the expected content and amount of photos
Working as a Freelance Photographer with Booking.com
The availability of our assignments depends on the current need for photographic coverage in your area. As soon as a suitable assignment becomes available, our Visual Content Coordinators will contact you. Be sure to update us on any changes to your location (especially if you move to a new city or country) and let us know of any upcoming trips you may have as well. There's always a chance we have assignments in places you are going to in your own time.
You can use content that you've produced for Booking.com in your portfolio, but please consult with our Visual Content Coordinators before doing so. Typically we request that photos you showcase in your portfolio are a maximum of 1080 pixels on the shortest side.
Our rates vary depending on the subject, length, and focus on the particular assignment. Each assignment will be clearly communicated and agreed to before the start. The payment will depend on the assignment itself. We operate on a self-billing invoice system which pays monthly (after an assignment is completed) without the need for a Freelancer to submit any additional paperwork.
It's also important to note that when (and if) our collaboration ends, any content created during the assignments will remain as the property of Booking.com.
