BruinLife’s photographers shoot thousands of high-quality photos throughout the year to add to the visual appeal of the website, magazine, and yearbook. 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 dozen stories published on a regular basis online.
After a minimum of 1 quarter of interning, photographers become eligible to be placed on stipend staff. A stipend is not an hourly compensation and are paid based on 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 job. 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 will be preferred.
Please note that there is mandatory training for new staff. Dates and times TBA. However, they take place at the end of Week 2, 3 and 4.
