"The right person can make a bike look good. And sometimes the right bike can make a person look good". – Bradley Woehl, American Cyclery
Public is looking for models for our web and print photography. We are planning a number of shoots in urban areas all around the US this spring including:
February / March - San Francisco Bay Area
May / June - New York City
And we have some ideas on how to work with people in other cities, so if you want to learn more about this let us know.
We're looking for 'real people' (mortals) rather than super-models, but if you happen to inhabit both categories that's just fine. Men and women of either sex between the ages of 20 and 70 are ideal, but as long as you have a friendly face, you're welcome to apply. Our photo shoots will be fun, not stressful; and we are committed to our models' physical and mental well-being. No lycra; no fasting.
We are a start-up and on a frugal budget, so we'll be looking especially for models who support our mission of getting more people on bikes and are willing to trade work for a bike or equipment.
If you are interested - or know someone else who might be, please send a brief letter of interest and an exemplary photo in jpeg format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep jpegs under 3 MB. We appreciate and respect the sensitivities and privacies of sending photos anonymously. We will respond with specifics about the shoots and pictures of our bikes, apparel and gear.
A bit too glamorous to be a model, but perhaps interested in Sales or Service? We are also recruiting a national team of "Public Agents" to assist us with home delivery, assembly, and follow up sales and service of our bikes. These are part-time jobs for people in urban areas with flexible schedules that afford them the ability to work evenings and/or Saturdays. If you are interested, we've posted a questionnaire for potential PUBLIC Agents to complete here. We'll follow up with a request for a resume of relevant work experience and references. We're planning to start testing the program in late February and March with deliveries beginning in April. Please take that time-line into account before you apply. All friendly, bike-loving folks are encouraged to apply. We plan to make this fun as well as profitable.
Thanks very much
Bay Area residents please come by and test ride one of our Dahon Mu Uno foldable bikes. Just give us a call at 415-896-0123 to make an appointment or stop by and knock on the door.
