The Photo Editor is one of the key members of the PMC team,
responsible for selecting photos and making them look great, helping
to define editorial direction and original content on a daily basis,
and giving one of the web's most visually exciting sites its unique
look and visual feel. What's more, as any digitally-savvy photo editor
knows, the photo content on a celebrity site can tell any story as
well or better than words -- and can generate many multiples the kind
of traffic that mere articles can. In short, the Photo Editor position
PMC captures and celebrates the essence of the celebrity lifestyle news, beauty, style, culture and
gossip. Stars entertain, but they also inspire and profoundly
influence what women see, hear, do, buy and share. Women identify with
celebrities: their trials, triumphs, relationships and romances,
obsessions and diversions. Stars are role models. PMC plays
a starring role in their daily lives. PMC doesn’t just
report the scoop; PMC relates it to women personal lives
allowing real women to connect through the lens of celebrity.
