> Hi Wes,
> Time on the water is always good times. Below is a little more on
> what we are putting together. We will be meeting Thursday the 27th @
> 6pm at the LOC (Tomorrow) to speak to those who are interested, answer
> any questions, and potentially set up a training this weekend.
> Tom Storm here from Lehighton Outdoor Center and Jim Thorpe River
> Adventures. We have an exciting new role upcoming this season on the
> Lehigh river and we wanted to send out an APB to see who would be
> interested within our kayaking community. As some of you may know, I
> am a professional photographer. This year we decided to develop a
> program offering a “Photo Boater” out on our rafting trips to document
> the day. We’ve run test days and the response has been an overwhelming
> “YES!” from both our staff and our guests.
> What is expected from a “Photo Boater”?
> -have fun doing what you do!
> -capture images of our guests and guides during the trip. Both candid
> shots as well as photos from certain quality spots on the river.
> -have the ability to consistently get to specific spots on the river.
> (we will be hiring for our “Easy Water” Section from Jim
> Thorpe-Bowmanstown, our “Intro to Whitewater” Section from
> Glen-Bowmanstown, as well as our “Big Time Whitewater” Gorge trips from
> -Be teachable in using our cameras (high-end yet straightforward point
> and shoot cameras)
> Why do this?
> -extra cash for the summer is always nice.
> -more seat time means better kayaking skills (while getting paid to do
> -we also train our staff through the Northeast Pa Kayak school for
> those interested in leveling up on the skill level you already have.
> -as a professional photographer, I will also help those who would like
> to level up on their photography skills with our gear as well as the
> gear you own. (does not have to be river related)
> This gig will be one trip a day, primarily on weekends, weekday trip
> will also be available first come first serve. The deeper the pool of
> photo boaters (“Floatographers” if you will) the more flexibility
> everyone will have in scheduling.
> We are looking to launch within the coming 3 weeks. If you are
> interested, you can contact me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org as well
> as my cell: 610.577.5653 for more information.
> Thanks again!

>> Hi Jerry and Tom
>> Sorry this took a while for me to answer. We were eight days on the

>> people who paddle the Lehigh and other rivers in the region.

>>> put forth every year. I'm happy we're peers.
>>>I believe you might know Tom Storm, copied on this email. He is one
>>> of my best friends, manager, and a professional in many areas,
>>> particularly as a photographer. We are partnering with him on a new
>>> idea of putting a "PhotoBoater" on each and every raft trip.
>>>Tom will contact you directly, but we'd like to know if you would
>>> help get this opportunity out to the WTC paddlers on your
>>> website/message board and/or your Facebook page. Tom has all the
>>> details and is the lead on this project. It is a very cool idea, and
>>> if you're so inclined, we'd appreciate getting the word out to your
