  • Internship Start Date: February 15, 2016
  • Compensation: Unpaid

Your grind:

As an intern, you'll be expected to:

  • Take lifestyle, product, and portrait photographs
  • Edit and touch-up photos
  • Operate a video camera during shoots
  • Assist in video shoots
  • Edit videos
  • Color-grade videos and create motion graphics

    • Taking inventory
    • Studio upkeep
    • Social Media upkeep
    • Writing small to medium amounts of copy

You gotta have:

  • Skills in organization, production, and composition, aiding in video and photo shoots and shot preparation
