The intern photographer will be counted on to assist in all photoshoots and cover an event. As assistant on assignment you will be on the lookout for how the photographers follow the La Gente style guide; treating our subjects in a respectful and interactive manner, ensuring coverage, etc. Your task will also include capturing social media content. When not on assignment or event the intern photographer will be responsible for digital transfer, labeling/naming, backup, and archiving of all images. Keep in mind that not all assignments will be about hard news but also creative content, you will learn to harness your photographic skills in both ways.
In order to prepare you we have a couple mandatory trainings, if there are issues with these dates inform us ASAP:
-Two Student Media training sessions (be prepared to dedicate two Saturdays or Sundays);
-Trainings are on January 26 & February 2nd or January 27 & February 3rd. The specific dates for Photography training is TBA.
-One Media Law training TBA, although it is usually held a Thursday after either week of the trainings.
-Other tasks throughout the quarter include:
-2 hours dedicated to flyering, outreach, fundraising, etc. (your choice). Hours can also be completed by attending our General Meetings (Wednesdays at 7PM) and your editor's office hours (TBA).
-3 pre-assigned pieces
Basic knowledge of photography, lighting, and computer equipment is required but we will have trainings to cover most of our tougher needs.
These are the bare bones of your position, but depending on your preferences and skills we can allocate your time to a specific task.
