Anyone who has studied photography in the slightest will know the name Ansel Adams. One of the most renowned photographers of all time, his beautiful black and white images of American national park landscapes are instantly recognisable. 

It has been the dream of many aspiring photographers to follow in those footsteps, and now it seems to be possible. The US National Parks service has posted a job listing looking for the next Ansel Adams. There's just one small catch, you can use your brand spanking new digital gear, but they also want the successful applicant to be able to use Large format just like Adam's did. For those who have been through most photography university courses, this may be a bit of a problem. Over the last decade film labs in universities have been closing down and focusing more and more on digital, leaving few photographers with the required skills. 

However, if you're an American looking to earn around $100,000, one for large format and you're ok with "physical exertion such as long periods of standing; walking over rough or rocky surfaces; recurring bending, crouching, or stretching; and recurring lifting of moderately heavy equipment and materials." then get applying!
