Join Native Agency as a Storyteller

We welcome applications from photographers interested in joining the Native community twice each year. The Winter 2021 application is now open.

What does it mean to be a Native Photographer?

It is important to note that we do not operate as a traditional agency as we have become a platform of visibility and support for photographers so they can be their own agents.

As a Native photographer you will have the ability to build relationships with a diverse community of international creators. You will have support from the Native team for feedback on projects, pitches, and questions / concerns about the industry.
We expect photographers to be active participants in our community by joining monthly group calls and participating in group discussions, exhibitions, publications, and other projects.

Selected photographers will be expected to sign a contract to join our database for at least one full year. After the first year, there is the option to continue on with the organization or exit with one month notice.

The deadline to apply is January 31st.  Decisions will be sent by March 1st. 
Accepting submissions: January 4 to January 31, 2021
