So you’re out there making early New Year’s resolutions, and one of them is that you want to be outdoors more. Yes, it’s gonna be the year of camping for you out in the great wide world. You know what’s really cool is that if you’re a good photographer, you can make a crapload of money taking pictures of cool outdoor locations as a photographer for the National Park Service. How big of crapload are we talking? Try between $60,000 and $100,000 per year.

Since we need to show that world that some things in America are still beautiful even as we sink into a fetid swamp of fascism ruled over by a pumpkin-hued Mussolini, the Park Service is looking for a photographer to take pictures of our national parks that can be added to the Library of Congress. Maybe that photographer is you? The first set of requirements you have to fulfill are that you’re an American citizen with a driver’s license and can pass a background check. After that it gets a little harder, as you have to prove you know a lot about large format, black and white photography, engineering and landscape documentation and you have to get along well with others. Also you have to be prepared to travel 5 to 10 days per month.

If you read all those qualifications still think you’re ready to be the U.S. government’s official nature photographer, get your resume and personal pitch together by December 15 and apply here. Also, watch out for bear and snake attacks while you’re out there taking pictures, and watch out for President Trump selling all of our national parks to his wretched children so they turn them into malls and golf courses.
