How do I find photography gigs where I live?

How do I narrow or filter my job list to find only photography jobs where I actually live instead of just anywhere in the United States?

It might not be easy.

People looking to hire photographers in you area are not necessarily using Upwork to find those photographers.


Upwork allows photographers to maintain profiles on this platform, but Upwork is primarily set up for clients who are looking to hire freelancers to work REMOTELY.

Ok , thanks for the reply. And is there anyway to narrow your search
results to find clients in my area(zip code, city,etc)?

Hi Albert,


You can use the Location filter to filter per country and you can put the name of the city in the search field as one of the keywords as sometimes clients mention the location in job posts if they are looking for freelancers who reside there. 


Thank you.

Ok, where is the location filter?

Hi Albert,


In order to make the Location filter available, please do turn off the ''US only'' filter and turn on the ''Filters'' (screenshot for the reference). You can set up a new Job Feed as described here in order to tune up your job searches to show the better results that match up with what you’re looking for.


Thank you!
