Edit - pay seems kinda low for those hours. Must remember these are US dollars, but still.

Yeah I know it is low pay, but for someone starting out, it may be worth it.

I don't live in Colorado or want the job, but was curious about something. When they said "Unlimited, non-exclusive photo rights", what does that translate into in layman's terms?

Does it mean that they are not insisting on the copyright, but are insisting on the right to use the pictures however they want?

Is this normal for a job like this?

Just trying to learn the lingo.

It means that the photographer must sign over all rights to the photography.

That is what non-exclusive means? What does exclusive mean then?

Interesting. I didn't know there were such things available. I'm too new to this to even be considered (but working on it) and may seek out such things in the future.

I've been practicing my "sports photography" on my daughter's softball team.

Thanks,
KAC

In all cases, pictures taken by a photographer, it is the photographer's exclusive rights to use the photo for whatever reasons. In most paying job. They pay you for your time, and some times they pay you for your holding rights to the photo. once you given this up, you are NOT allow to use your own photo for reproduction and printing without the consent of the NEW owners.

Unfortunately this is way too low for the amount of days and to give up your rights to the photo. IMO.

It means that they can do anything they want with the photograph. They can sell it, publish it, use it for advertising, etc.

It also means that you can do anything you want to with the photograph - almost like "shared custody". The photograph is still yours, and you can sell it, publish it, etc., too.

I guess the photo market must be pretty good if you folks can turn down approx. $30 per hour to take pictures.

Low pay? That's not too bad. Sure there won't be any future income from the work, but 600 for a weekend's work is pretty decent for a sub-pro photographer - especially now when you can find dozens of people with decent gear who would volunteer to do something like this.

Out of dozens with suitable equipment they would be lucky to find one with suitable ability. There again, if they offer to pay peanuts, they may be prepared to accept monkeys.
