This internship is going to be awesome, guys. Are you a go-getter? Do you want to learn everything about photography? Interested in studio lighting and setting up workshops? This internship will fuel your desire for knowledge and reward you for your hard work. It’s not about holding a reflector or setting up a light; it’s being part of something HUGE. As an intern, you aren’t going to just be used for a little shoot here or there. But, you will work with a photographer that does weddings, corporate events, casual shooting, photography workshops and more. You even get the experience of classic styles of pin-up, burlesque, and cabaret photography with the Atlanta Photographers Guild and Burlesque Atlanta. You’ll learn a little bit about everything. Most importantly, you gain a strong skill-set with photography, which is positive and worthwhile.
So what do we expect from you? Well time, commitment, a bit of labor, and also know up front that this is an unpaid internship. There are a lot of shoots, workshops, and more coming up, which it will be nice to have some helping hands. Also, it will be nice to have some folks who want to hike, explore, shoot, and more when the weather permits. Are you game for that? If so, send me an email to Trent@trentchau.comwith the following:

Frequently Asked Questions about this Internship:
How much time do you I have to give? This internship doesn’t require you to be at ALL of our events. The three entities listed above have a lot of events going on, and if you are chosen as an intern you will be invited to our google calender and given the chance to select what you help with. We do plan on having occasional MUST attend events which are normally educational, but will try to work around peoples schedule. If an intern wants to attend all of our events, and really learn, they could put 30~50 hours a month if they want. But the minimum of 8 hours is probably fine also.
Can I intern just for a certain thing? Ideally an intern should be available for all of the events above, but if they want to pick and choose events they will have that option. Though be aware that more than likely events will be first come first serve for interns, or a certain intern maybe selected because of their skill at that current point. Our events are varied, but outside of that they do all require us to setup photography equipment and a valuable lesson can be learned from any of them.
What education can I expect? Well up front you will learn a lot about what it takes up setting up a great photography session. But more so there will be classes setup JUST for you and the rest of the interns. These will make sure the interns have better knowledge of their equipment, and when applied help bring the interns to a higher level. Also we will break interns into groups during these events, and you will be expected to work as a team. Team building is essential to higher level application and learning.
