CL has launched a new blog called Sideshow that exists merely so happy party-goers can see their happy faces the day after. We want to help people remember exactly how much fun they had before they were hungover. And we need a couple awesome photographers to do that.
We'll be giving you the access to the coolest shows, parties and festivals. You'll be posting wicked photos to our website. And we'll pay you. It's an exceedingly symbiotic relationship.
If you think you're down for the task or know someone who is, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send me some shots you've taken that pass for "nightlife photos" (i.e. you and your friends at a party, drinking in your backyard or wreaking havoc elsewhere) and you just might get picked to be CL's photo ambassador to the nightcrawlers of Atlanta.
Email me with any questions but check out the Sideshow photo galleries first to get an idea of what we're looking for. Don't send me photos of your dog, your grandma or that artsy shot of a fire hydrant. Party pics, people.
