Calling all photography students! The lovely and friendly people at the Dallas Observer are recruiting a photo intern for the upcoming semester.
Our interns work directly with the art director and the web editor to supply quality photography for blogs and slideshows, covering events including burlesque shows, art openings, local concerts, festivals, anything at all really. Interns who pass muster are provided the opportunity to assist with feature/cover photo shoots, working closely with the art director to get feedback on their work. Interns are also encouraged to present ideas that could be used for slideshows and photo presentations on the website. In the past, stellar interns have photographed dishes for our weekly review, as well as covers (and even won awards for it!).
Important: Photography interns must be enrolled and register for internship credits--no exceptions. There's no cash offered for this gig, only credits. The number of credits is determined by your institution of enrollment. Reimbursement will be provided for mileage accrued. Still interested? Read on!
