‘Ansel Adams’ Job Opening in US Govt Pays ~$100,000 Per Year


In 1941, legendary photographer Ansel Adams was assigned by the US Department of the Interior to shoot large format photos of National Parks and other remarkable spots out in the American outdoors.

Today, after almost 80 years, the same job opening has appeared again: the National Parks Service is looking to hire a black-and-white large format photographer with the salary to get up to $100,000 per year.

A new job listing at USAJOBS shows that the National Park Service of the Department Of The Interior is looking for someone to fill an opening with the title “Photographer, GS-1060-11/12.”


The full time job has a salary range of $63,722 to $99,296 per year, and is based out of Washington, DC. The new employed should be ready for many travels (up to 5 to 10 nights per month, according to the list), and could only be a US citizen.

Among the job duties, the photographer will be tasked with shooting large-format documentary photos for the Library of Congress, developing photographic guidelines and standards, producing exhibition quality prints, evaluating photographic submissions, and making presentations about the photo collection.
