The Horniman Museum and Gardens in south east London has been open since Victorian times, when the tea trader and philanthropist, Frederick John Horniman first opened his house and extraordinary collection of objects to the local community. Since then, our collection has grown significantly and includes internationally important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history gallery – 

all surrounded by 16 acres of beautiful Gardens offering breath taking views across London. 

Are you passionate about museum collections and making them accessible to a wide audience? If so you could play a key role in the recording and sharing of the Horniman’s collections and events. 

We are seeking an enthusiastic photographer to help us meet our ambitious project and ongoing commitments by creating stunning digital photographs. 

Your main responsibilities will be to create and manage high quality digital photographs of objects in the Horniman’s collections and of Horniman events and to provide support and training to others in the Museum who may take photographs on the Horniman’s behalf. 

Our ideal candidate will have working experience of studio photography and digital still cameras, ideally with experience of photographing museum objects. A comprehensive working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop in a PC environment, together with the ability to work as part of a team and meet tight deadlines with little supervision, are all essential requirements of this post. 

Candidates invited for interview will be asked to provide 6 recent examples of their work.
