Surf Photographer/Videographer – Sri Lanka

July 2017 — December 2017

We’re looking for experienced surf photographers from anywhere in the world with an entrepreneurial attitude. The salary is commission based and in our experience photographers who engage with our guests at meal times, who arrange photo viewing sessions throughout the week and put packages together to show at our film nights do much better than those who sit back and wait. It’s up to you. We also require a couple of times a week for you to film guests for video correction sessions in conjunction with the head surf coach and to provide shots of daily life at Soul Surf for our website and social media. In exchange we offer accommodation in a shared room, staff meals, yoga lessons and time in the water.

As a key team member you will be required to act as a host throughout a guests stay, attending meals and events and helping your head surf coach to get things done about the retreat.

Experience of working and living in developing countries is a distinct advantage, experience in India even more so. Current surf coaching qualifications, beach lifeguard and professional liability insurance are a must.

Use the form below to contact us and give us a quick overview paragraph or two with the reasons why you’d be a good fit for Soul & Surf in particular demonstrating a good understanding of us, our ethos and our background, plus attach your CV. If you don’t put all this lot together for us we’ll have to presume you’re not really serious about the position.

Staying with Ed and Sofie at Soul and Surf was the most relaxing part of our whirlwind of a journey through India. The accommodation is relaxing sophisticated and simple. The perfect way to experience India.

We are in absolute awe of Ed and Sofie! Apart from having one of the best jobs in the world and sharing how much they enjoy this part of India. Ed and Sofie were amazing hosts in so many ways. It was the little things which made our stay so memorable; The early smiles on the way to the beach, fresh bowl of flowers at the breakfast table each day, the extra effort made to meet any food requirements we had and the amazing breakfasts made with love each morning. Sofie’s Yoga classes taken on the rooftop amongst the trees was defiantly a great way to feel enlightened. While with the assistance of Ed’s surf guidance we were all standing on our surfboards by the end of our stay. The list of delightful memories is long , but we all agree the most memorable moment was watching the dolphins swim by while sitting on our surfboards. Our Stay was made so much easier with their guidance and local knowledge of Ed & Sofie. We wish our one week trip could of been a month.
Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts. Hope to see you again xox”
