Unfair wages
Fan Photographer (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: "managers" were nice people, they obviously couldnt control the pay scheme so i cant hold that against them
Cons: everything else
I feel like I was baited and switched with this company. When initially speaking with the company, they mention compensation to be 15/hr. They did not mention that only one shooter makes 15/hr, the one that takes the most pictures, and that everyone else makes 8/hr. With games lasting only a few hours, it doesnt make sense to spend $20 in gas to make – more... maybe $32. $12?? Really?? Dont work for these people, its not worth your time – less

Great second job if you love Photography & People
Fan Photographer (Current Employee), Santa Clara, CADecember 26, 2013
Pros: you take fan pictures all day and get paid for it!
Cons: not really a primary job.
First off let me say that this is not a primary job for as I am a pro photographer with my own portrait/sports photography business. This is my weekday job and I work at BAT on the weekends when I am free. I love that I get to go to all the bay area games for the San Jose Sharks, Oakland A's, San Francisco Giants, the Stanford Cardinals and interact – more... with the fans there. If you are very familiar with using a dslr, you should feel great to be able to walk around taking pictures and get paid for your work. Get a unique picture of a fan, give them a card where they can find their picture online, repeat. Easy! My managers are pretty cool as well as the people I work with. Pay is somewhat low especially for here in California, but there are plenty of other jobs that expect more from you and pay the same! Good part is, if you shoot and sell more than everyone else, you get paid more! So do your job, have fun, and make some money! This is a great stepping stone if you are an aspiring photographer! – less

Great Photography Job- At DC Verizon Center
Fan Photographer (Current Employee), DC- Verizon CenterDecember 5, 2013
Pros: fun, easy, fast
Cons: 4-hour shifts, pay isn't that great.
I love being a fan photography. It's a fun, upbeat environment where you can just be yourself. It's a Great first job for aspiring photographers. You get to interact with Fans and help make their memories into photos. Its kinda crazy to think that there are pictures I've taken hanging up in someones living room. a typical night at a game is basically – more... simple. You simply have to walk up to people snap two photos give them a card and explain where to find them and your done. Our Manager is great. He is always there to help you if you need it, but isn't overbearing. Coworkers are easy-going. The hardest part is making your quota, but on most nights that not even that hard. – less

I enjoy interaction with the general public.
Fan Photographer (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 13, 2013
Pros: the beauty of flying and love of aerial photography as an art form.
Cons: long hours and bad weather.
Since 1984 I worked at Flying Scotchman, Inc., which was a family business since 1956. I trained pilots that are Captains for the airlines, Military Pilots and private pilots. I was in charge of training and overseeing flight instructors on daily basis. The hardest part of the job was the ever changing weather conditions in Minnesota. The most enjoyable – more... part of my job was the aerial photography. – less

Avoid unless desperate for work
Green Screen Fan Photographer (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INSeptember 19, 2013
Pros: flexible schedule, enthusiastic staff, easy hire, workers in demand
Cons: poor management, highly disorganized, little care for hourly workers, long hours, unfair pay decisions, seasonal, sloppy, travel
To be fair, there are advancement opportunities, and some employees seemed to genuinely like working for this company.

For me, however:

Recruited as a photographer - used for direct sales (pulling people off the street to be photographed). Long hours under the sun.

Training was a joke. Work was highly disorganized. Fan Photographers (not to be confused – more... with green screen photographers) were ripped off. They were pitted against each other, paid at $8 an hour, and given commission intensives that were unattainable for most individuals (depended on luck of location).

Proper forms were not gathered for payment purposes. Follow-up attempts were not gathered in a timely or correct fashion (needed to contact company multiple times). Payment was way too late (approximately a month and a half after job completion). Pay did not properly correspond with the number of hours worked (training and extended hours still unaccounted for). Was given a raise on day-one, but that raise was not notarized by supervisor. Had to argue with HR to receive correct pay rate. Told by HR that I was not the first one from my group to call in with similar pay related complaints. – less
