    Unfortunately I will not be able to fully apply for this job. But after reading the post and responsibilities of the newly employed I noticed you looking for to be promoted more on social media networks. Well I got to thinking and I think I could help with your promoting from home all on my iPhone. Along with trips out there for photo shoots or conferences. I’m great with photography as well as editing photos. I also have tons of ideas for promoting and just for general growth in the industry an community. I wouldn’t be asking for regular pay or anything just something for the promoting and photo editing. Email me if interested
