Photo Logistics is based on networking. Each one takes his/her place; each one does what he/she does best.
In August of this year PHOTO LOGISTICS will be ten years old. In this time we have built and consolidated the largest network of photographic hides in southern Europe. And if it has been possible, it is because many people have believed in this project.
Let us tell you how PHOTO LOGISTICS works. The company has different units: a booking and marketing centre, an accounting and administration of authorization applies; a workshop where hides are built and, of course the hides themselves working in the field. As you can see, if you want to do things well and in a professional way it is not enough to put some hides in the field. The whole thing requires the work of more than one person, since a single person hardly will know how to cover all the needs that a company requires. On the other hand, this allows everyone to have time to do what they do best.
When a photographer gets in touch with PHOTO LOGISTICS no matter the channel, he/she is advised, depending on what he/she requires, about the best period, what hide to use and other aspects. From here, the reservation centre contacts the guide to book the date and then the booking is confirmed to the photographer.
How does the agreement work with the guides? We always work on a percentage of the price of the service. It is generally 70% for the local guide and 30% for the central services. That 70% includes all the previous work that has had to be done in order for the hide to work: installation, maintenance, regular feeding (if required), water supply (if required), follow-ups, customer guidance, etc. What then includes 30%? all the marketing work, promotion at fairs, strategic planning, central booking, accounting, authorization applies, etc. That is, it includes all the jobs that would not allow you to be in the field long enough. Therefore, let’s speak clearly: a fixed salary is not offered, but rather work and income sharing.
We ask reciprocal exclusivity, PHOTO LOGISTICS will ask you, in a matter of hides, to work exclusively for the company. In return you can be sure that the company won’t work with any other guide in the geographical area agreed upon. We currently work in the following areas in Spain: Catalonia, Valencia, Murcia, Andalusia, Aragon, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Castilla y León and Castilla-la Mancha. In each territory we have a different situation, so if you are interested in working with us and you live in one of these areas, send us an email and see how we have the situation in your area. At this moment we are also working to expand the network outside of Spain. Therefore, we are open to studying collaborations anywhere in the world.
Who builds the hides? Usually, the hides are built in Parets del Vallès (Barcelona) and they are moved where necessary, but if we agree on the materials and design, there is no problem for them to be built by the guide. This is especially important in those distant places.
All hide of PHOTO LOGISTICS (in fact all legal hide, whoever it may be) must have a double authorization: from the corresponding public body and from the landowner. Let us clarify something: every land plot has an owner, this can be public (municipality or regional Government) or private (a person, an NGO or a foundation). Therefore, there is no place where you can set a hide without permission from the ownership. PHOTO LOGISTICS will proceed to ask for the authorizations, but we count on the help of the local guide to guide us in those places where we have no experience.
If you are interested in working as a guide with us, integrating yourself into an organization with ten years of experience and that exceeds seventy hides spotted in different zones throughout Spain and working with a worldwide public, you just have to contact us via email: info @ photo-logistics.com or phone (including WhatsApp and Telegram) +34 638887681. We will be happy to open the doors of PHOTO LOGISTICS to you.
