Thanks Jaron!

Turns out I get OTA updates with iOS7 as each version of beta is released. Your turn!

If you writers post Stories like "Women have a hard time swallowing" then I think every applicant should be considered overqualified.

Hence the reason why they're looking for new writers. That writer doesn't work for them anymore.

I guess that writer might have found his firing hard to swallow.

I see what you did there.

Is there a particular reason for the requirement that the applicants only be in the US or Canada?

For the reason of payment I believe. While in the US, Staff Writers will be considered contracted help and sent a 1099-MISC tax form at the end of the year. Canadian tax law is similar in style.

Its just a matter of not confident on how to go about paying a non US writer and still file the correct tax forms.

The only perquisite you have is to ensure that your non us based subcontractor supplies a W-8BEN form . Apart from that you just treat them as a normal freelancer. Shame as you are missing out on some amazing talent.

wow where do i sign up :-)

Just sent an email! Hopefully I hear back!

"The only prerequisite is that you are at least a part time professional photographer or videographer."
Why? I'd like to see more competent writing on the tech-side of photography, because so far a significant amount of the tech articles/reblogs on fstoppers have errors or misinformation in them, either introduced by fstoppers or because the writer didn't read the original source and copied the errors from some middleman.

I'd love to hear from people who design and manufacture gear, or people who write the software of your favourite editing programs, and these people aren't professional photographers, but that doesn't mean that they don't have something valuable to say about photography.

(PS: If anyone knows sites similar to LensRentals blog, lenstip.com articles, or the occasional tech articles on the ProLost blog, do tell me.)

Too bad it's only for US&Canada. I bet there's a good reason for it, but I would've loved to take a shot at it. More international = more interesting!

Boo for only USA residents. I got excited there. For about 22 seconds until I reached that line.
