The Job:

The Prop Stylist will work with our existing in-house photo teams to prop-style front-of-book, back-of-book, and features shoots for our magazines, as well as shoots for our digital editions and social platforms. This requires an energetic, can-do attitude and a flair for color, style and tableware.


You Will:

  • Work with the creative team on set planning and prepping for photoshoots
  • Source, pick up and return props; maintain and build our studio and in-house prop collection
  • Help track and plan the propping budget to ensure goals are met
  • Conduct regular research of styling trends through websites, blogs, and magazines


You Are:

  • Experienced: You have 3-5 years’ experience as a prop stylist for food content, preferably for lifestyle brands.
  • Problem-solver: You aren’t afraid of an uncharted course. You’re a results-oriented multitasker who runs to – not from – a challenge. You’re able to work on multiple projects simultaneously and think independently.
  • Enthusiastic: A creative thinker and a team player. That’s how you’re described by your colleagues. Your organization and ability to communicate clearly with staff, team members and vendors make you an essential member of any workforce.
  • Multi-Tasker: When it comes to juggling multiple projects at once, you’re a pro; anticipating needs before they arise. Paired with your knack for communication, no one can stop you.
  • Flexible: You have the personality and skills to support multiple brands with different aesthetics and can deftly pivot among projects.
