Target Studio is an integral part of Target's Marketing Team and is leveraged for photo and video production services. We partner with teams across the company to bring the Target Brand to life.

As a Senior Photo Producer, you will bring the Target Brand to life by leveraging production information from Target Creative and Merchant Partners to support photo / motion execution of E-commerce and Marketing Special Projects.

You will have experience in all aspects of Photo Production.

Pre-Production: You are the supporting link between internal and external Photo Studio Partners, Producers, Sample Management, Art Directors, Item Data Specialists and Site Merchandise teams. Your experience will include expert proficiency with sample and image tracking tools, the studio workflow, production resources, and an awareness of image and style standards necessary to uphold the Target brand. Your leadership expertise to manage mid-level projects and requests amongst partner teams is crucial, clearly communicating to relevant partners at various levels. The ability to strategize is key as you lead projects cross functionally. Working closely with Site Merchandise teams, you will create and maintain accurate financial reporting.

Production: Partnering with Photo Studio contacts and Producers, you'll address all questions and challenges that arise during production, including sample management, project estimates and budget management. This position requires the organizational and communication skills necessary to determine production approach and direct clear expectations, while focusing on and identifying key objectives by project. You'll have a firm understanding of photography collections and support the production team in accurate image capture and file naming. It will be important for you to actively demonstrate critical thinking; to connect and align work across teams.

Post-Production: You will verify that all final assets are in Pipeline, and partner with IDS teams on the image process as needed. Your knowledge of samples will directly support color matching of laydowns to on-figure images and the conversion of packaging images to TCINs. You will have a working knowledge of asset reuse and assist teams in their search. Soliciting project feedback from key partners will ensure we are delivering great results.

As a key partner in the creative production team, you will help build production capabilities and a collaborative culture.
