INTERNSHIPS

Interns are an important part of the V.K.Rees team. I offer 4 month long internships, all year long. Unfortunately, due to limitations in studio space, I can only have a few interns at once.

 

Before you apply, please take some time to review the list below. These are the kinds of tasks that my team and I usually need interns to do. If you are not interested in performing these kinds of tasks, that’s cool, this just isn’t the right internship for you. No need to apply.

 

Also, please note that this internship is unpaid. However I take pride in working closely with interns and teaching them as much as possible- going so far as to get together with the interns once a week to answer all of their career and photography questions. I’m picky about which interns to work with because I want to be sure you get as much out of our professional relationship as I do.

Equipment

Interns are expected to setup and breakdown the equipment at the beginning and end of each shoot day while keeping the equipment closet organized.

Prop Assitance

Interns are often asked to assist with prop styling. This includes prop pickup and return, painting props, prop shopping with a prop stylist, putting the props away, mailing props, searching for props, etc.

Production Assistance

Interns take on the role of production assistant on photo shoot days. This means your are responsible for making coffee, running errands, taking lunch orders, helping clients connect to the wifi, etc.

Interns help keep the studio running smoothly. This means keeping the space clean, scanning receipts, equipment inventory, prop organization, refrigerator cleaning, etc.
