I applied for a job with a well known Bay Area School Photography Studio. I showed up in a jacket and tie and we discovered that I had worked for a company that the Studio had merged with years ago. The interview went great. I have more than 35 years experience photographing subjects for portraiture. As the interview concluded, The HR people said, "we will let you know". I knew then that I did not have the job. This was confirmed when I got an email stating that they are going with someone else with experience closer to they way they do business? I was definitely turned down due to my age. But since they are not allowed to say that. There is no one more qualified than I am for the job. I actually could have brought by experience to them to improve their workflow. They probably went with someone in their 20's or 30's. Old people make them uncomfortable I suppose.
I find it best to show up 30 mins before sunset and stay 30 mins afterwards. During this hour, there is usually a 5 min period for beautiful photos.
Hello...I am 76 years young and in good shape. I retired from a NY Newspaper after 35 years there as a senior photographer and photo editor. My credentials are 100%. I recently moved to Florida after retirement and want to go back to work in the photography field. I have applied for different jobs in this area and sent resumes and portfolios of my work. One was for a photo editor and the other 2 were for fashion photography, in which, have traveled worldwide doing fashion. Ever one of those companies said i did not qualify for those positions. If anything, I am probably over qualified. Without mentioning my age, the applications asked year of HS I graduated and the years I worked at other jobs...to me this is the same as asking for your age. COULD THIS BE AGE DISCRIMINATION and what can be done....thanks for returned information.
Anyone know of any awesome Photography companies looking for a free Lance Photographer like myself in Phoenix Arizona?
