Freelance Photographer Gets $2,000 Job With Google to Cover His Fees
The freelance photographer who got his start on the web has been offered a $2.4 million deal with Google to cover his freelance work.
Photographer Andrew Hsieh says he is being offered a job covering freelance work for the Google Fiber Internet service, which Google says is its best option.
Hsieh, who lives in New York City, is the first freelance photographer to get paid for his work since the start of the Internet, which was the first web service that offered direct access to the Web.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for a lot of people who are freelancers, who might not be able to afford to do their own jobs but want to make money,” Hsiehsaid in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.
Google Fiber is a fiber optic cable that can be deployed in a city or a suburb, and it can reach as far as 150 miles from the nearest urban center.
The company said it has been offering “custodial, flexible, and cost-effective” work for its customers for three years and has hired more than 70,000 freelancers and other artists.
Hsiesaid said he got the job at the company because Google Fiber’s technology is more affordable than his previous job.
He said he has been using Google Fiber to get his freelance business started.
According to Hsie hs, he has a client list that includes film festivals, universities, news sites, travel agencies, and a number of other companies that have been looking for someone to cover their freelance work, including Amazon, Airbnb, Etsy, and Pinterest.
He said he was also hired by Google Fiber last year to cover a job he was doing for the U.S. Department of Labor that was related to the unemployment program.
In an interview last year, Hsie said he received an offer of $1,500 per week for his job covering government-related topics, but that Google Fiber offered $2 million for his services.
Since his last job ended last year at the University of Illinois, he said he would like to see his freelance career expanded.
This is a great job for me because I’m not really used to it,” Hsi said.
However, Hsi’s employer, which he did not name, said that Hsie had not been paid for any work done by him since last year.
Google Fiber says that he is working in “the field of information technology” for the company.
