BruinLife’s photographers shoot thousands of high-quality photos throughout the year to add to the visual appeal of the BruinLife Annual and BruinLife Online. Their work entails aspects of both photojournalism and stock photography. Together, the staff contributes heavily to the all-color book’s attractive illustrative design and to the dozens of stories published online.
The BruinLife Annual’s main objective is to give the UCLA student body an accurate reflection of the school year through photos and stories by Bruins and about Bruins. BruinLife Online aims to provide lifestyle and entertainment content to the UCLA community, distinct from Daily Bruin’s campus news. This includes guides to LA, tips for apartment hunting, reviews of local shows, trend alerts, etc. in blog-style articles.
After two quarters of fulfilling all member requirements and upon recommendation by their section editor, interns become eligible for stipend staff. To clarify, stipends are not the same as hourly compensation; rather, you're paid based on the assignments turned in.
The BruinLife Photography staff is involved in shooting various topics for articles to be published both online and in the yearbook, but also various photo projects for various other magazines.
Applicants do not need prior photo experience to apply for this position. There will be Student Media training sessions taught by professionals, staff workshops and office hours available for guidance. However, due to the nature of the position, photographers with basic knowledge of photography are preferred.
Please note that there is mandatory Student Media training for new interns, as well as any training held by your section editor. Student Media training usually occurs on the weekends after Weeks 3, 4 and 5. Further details will be provided upon acceptance.
