I love my job. I love breaking news and Web culture and the frenzy of New York City. But I’m thinking of leaving it all behind and moving to Washington, D.C., because someone is hiring a full-time puppy photographer. And the pay isn’t bad. 


The site is Dreamy Puppy, a pet store in Virginia that works with local breeders to sell purebred and mixed-breed fluffballs. The puppies have to look damn cute on DreamyPuppy.com, so they’re looking for a Photoshop-capable photographer at $750 a week to:

  • Take pictures and record videos of puppies using a provided DSLR
  • Post production
  • Upload pictures and videos on website (will train)
  • List pictures and videos on affiliate advertising site (will train)
  • Retake pictures and videos upon request 

You get Mondays off, plus weekends. 

Oh yeah, and here are some puppies you get to hang out with:

The choice is clear, isn’t it?
