Field Scouts are experienced photographers and camping aficionados who shoot and verify the accuracy of private Hipcamp listings, in addition to providing feedback for site improvement.
We encourage anyone with a love of the outdoors and photography experience to apply for our Field Scout program. We’re specifically looking for photographers who know how to tell stories with their photos—landscape shots are great, but we love to see humans interacting with that landscape even more.
Interested in becoming a Hipcamp Field Scout? Read on to see if you’re a good fit.
What you need:
- DSLR camera or digital camera equivalent
- Online photography portfolio
- Hipcamp profile
If you don’t check these three boxes, we will not be able to approve you as a Hipcamp Field Scout, as the role is primarily for experienced photographers. But don’t fret! If you’re an avid camper and still want to get involved with Hipcamp, we’d love for you to join us in our invite-only camping program, Terra Incognita.
