The B. Schwartz team is excited to announce our internship openings! Do you have a passion for photography or a knack for film? Then you might be the perfect fit.
B. Schwartz interns can expect to be involved in fifteen to thirty weddings and events per year. Interns have the opportunity to second shoot alongside the lead photographer growing their portfolio and bolstering their creativity and consistency. Classes and workshops will only go so far, but as an intern you’ll learn by capturing real weddings in unique and challenging environments.
Here is the scoop:
The B. Schwartz program provides training behind the camera and behind the scenes. Interns will dedicate a portion of their time to the intricacies of digital and film photography. This includes photo composition, post production and image critiques. Additionally, interns learn the ins and outs of owning and operating a photography business including working with clients and marketing.
This internship program seeks potential, not perfection. Nervous or unsure? Apply anyway! The purpose of the program is to teach by offering experiences you won’t get in the classroom. Internships begin this April and conclude October of 2016. All interns are paid hourly on wedding and event days.
-Applicants must live in the Santa Barbara or Denver areas.
-Due to the nature of the wedding industry applicants are required to work weekends, late nights and some overnight stays.
-Applicants must own a Canon DSLR and have some grasp on shooting in manual mode.
-Some experience is recommended. You don’t need to be a pro, but a serious applicant needs more than Instagram exposure.
-Experience with Lightroom and Photoshop preferred, but not required.
-Professional verbal and written communication skills are required.
-Last but not least, maintaining a positive attitude and being willing to go above and beyond is crucial. Photography is an art, but we also we provide a service to clients. Being able to meet clients needs and over deliver on their expectations is an absolute must.
