FilmNeverDie

A community for shutterbugs established in 2011, FilmNeverDie has since grown from a one man garage operation to a staff of 10. FilmNeverDie now offer developing, scanning, camera and film retailing, but most importantly take pride in running community events to bring fellow film shooters together. 

With a flagship store now cemented nicely in Melbourne CBD, FilmNeverDie has also been growing during the COVID-stricken year of 2020. Not only have we launched a FilmNeverDie Asia physical store in Malaysia, but we also launched our first 35mm Niji point and shoot camera and added another vending machine in Windsor, bring the total number of vending machines (Vendy) to four, servicing metro Melbourne.

2021 will no doubt be another year of growth for us, and guess what? We will need to grow our team again! With the popularity of film increasing, we are looking at adding a front of house photo retail assistant, a photo lab technician and also a Vendy + local delivery support person. See more details below. 

 

 

 

 

Part-time Photo Lab Technician

2-3 days a week, 4-6 hours a day. 

Job Description

Photography laboratory technicians (or photo lab technicians) ensure that photographic negatives and positives submitted to their lab are developed and processed correctly. This work has also included the process of scanning negatives and converting them to digital files. Technicians may also be responsible for enlarging, refocusing or retouching photographs to make specific parts of the image clearer or more visible as required by customer.

The photo lab technician will be working in a semi-retail store setting, in a purpose-built lab and photo retail shop just off the hustle-bustle side of Spencer St in Melbourne's CBD. He or she will also be working within a team of analogue camera enthusiasts and/or photographers, surrounded with an ever-growing community of analogue shooters.

Job Duties

Photo lab technicians are required to know how to produce copies of negatives, whether they be digital or print. For film, this involves understanding how to prepare photographic chemical solutions. Currently, computers are also utilized to assist in this work, and it is the duty of photo lab technicians to maintain the computers and the programs necessary. In addition, photo lab technicians must be able to examine scans and prints for defects and trim photographs as needed.

They're also responsible for the day-to-day maintenance and upkeep of the equipment. Lab technicians also keep track of the lab's inventory of supplies and can assist in ordering new materials as necessary. Quality control is also a part of the position, starting with calibrating the machines on a regular basis and continuing through reviewing orders as they are processed, scanned and delivered to the customer.

The ideal candidate

The skills needed to perform the duties of photo lab technicians can be learned on the job, although classes and previous experience on photography and photo development may be an asset. Previous working experience in photo lab will also be looked favourably.

For most jobs, no additional education is necessary. Nevertheless, training will teach prospective photo lab technicians how to use and maintain computer equipment, mix chemical baths necessary for photo development and determine the best possible finish, colouring and shading. These programs may also instruct photo lab technicians on techniques to enhance the photographer's work and avoid defects.

To be successful in a photo lab, you should be:

  • Interested in analogue and film photography
  • Highly organised with a great attention to detail
  • Highly focused with task on hand
  • Demonstrate ability to be clean and tidy
  • Strong time management skills with an ability to work under pressure
  • Able to carry out behind-the-scenes work in an atmosphere focused on high-quality output
  • Proactive, creative, problem solver and can implement solutions
  • Good at record keeping or, in a retail setting, cashiering, basic math skills are also useful
  • The ability to work independently as well as part of a wider team
  • Highly motivated with a positive "can do" attitude

To be successful in the application you will need to supply:

  • A cover-letter, outlining: 
    • How you aligned with 'FilmNeverDie Culture' (work and philosophy).
    • Why you may be the idea candidate and how in your previous work, school or university course can demonstrate the skills set out in the dot points above.
  • A resume
    • With 3 referees for references check.
