Krista Photography Internships Available!

 

When I started out in photography almost 10 years ago, my first job was assisting at a big wedding studio in Chicago.  I remember the very first task they gave me… shovel the sidewalk :)  I started at the very bottom of the food chain.  As months went by, I became the studio manager, and then began shooting as an Associate photographer for the company.  A few years later, I moved out on my own and started at the bottom again in a new town, with a new studio.  I have worked hard over the past 5 years to create a business that I love and that actually supports me.   I don’t ever forget those first few months though, and the opportunity I was given to learn from someone successful and to see it all from the inside before I went off on my own.

Over the years, I’ve tried to pay that same opportunity forward.  I’ve brought on interns the last few seasons, and it’s been great!  I get some much-needed help, and they have hopefully had the chance to learn things they couldn’t have learned in school.  This past year, I got a new intern, CoCo, who actually interned at the studio in Chicago just after I moved to Boston, and then moved to Boston herself.  She’s so awesome though, that I had to take her on as a paid assistant/photo editor.  And man, she’s been SUCH a help to me!!!  But here we are, reaching the peak of wedding season (in Boston at least), and we need some more help!  So, we’re hoping to find a new intern to add to the team!! If you’re interested, check out the details below to see if you’d be a good fit!!

What are we looking for?

  • Photography, graphic-design, or marketing student, or someone just starting out in the photography business
  • honest, detail-oriented, hard-working, creative, problem-solver who’s eager to learn – preferably someone fun :)
  • experience with Mac computers, Microsoft Word, Lightroom & Photoshop
  • you’ll need a car to get to my home office in Woburn
  • 6-8 hours/week
  • Commitment through the end of the year, starting ASAP!

What kinds of things will you be doing?

  • contact management/data entry
  • shipping packages
  • scanning film
  • culling/editing shoots
  • burning discs
  • office organization/filing
  • research projects
  • social media tasks
  • designing print materials
  • running errands
  • various projects (i.e. setting us up with ShootQ)
  • shoveling the sidewalk ;)

What will you get in return?

  • Opportunity to learn how to run a wedding photography business from a seasoned professional
  • Intern Day each quarter where we’ll spend the day focusing only on what you want to learn, and giving you portfolio feedback – lunch included
  • This is unpaid, but I’ll buy or make you lunch each week :)
  • Opportunity to assist at weddings and portrait sessions (PAID)
  • You’ll probably get to hear me singing to myself a lot, get to pet my cat a lot, and hopefully have a little fun while you’re here :)
