We operate the largest Photography Internship in the country. Currently we have 11 Interns and every Friday at 9am they must post a blog entry. This is the weekly summary.
Intern Heather: “The river shoot, for me, was definitely my first threshold. I had to break away from old patterns of thinking. I had to actually stop thinking at all, well, the critical thinking on my craft.”
Intern Joshua: “When presented with challenges and when you are placed in unfamiliar circumstances you either act or you do not. All of your experience, knowledge, and expertise mean absolutely nothing if you do not act.”
Intern Karley: “I really struggle with being comfortable having my picture taken.”
Intern Tanisha: “At first, I held back quite a bit. I was nervous, I did not know intern Stephanie at the time and I did not want to get in her way. I missed a ton of shots and I just sucked for a while.”
Intern Bonnie: “On the drive home I began to process everything and only then did I realize what an adventure I was truly going to have over the next 3 months and beyond. I want to become a rockstar photographer.”
Intern Alexander: “This is my first internship with anybody. I’ve never interned before in my life.”
Intern Delilah: “At first, I stayed comfortably along the edge of the river. Shooting from the sidelines – thinking I wouldn’t have to get in. Or, get wet. I was wrong.”
Intern Chad: “I had been looking at the blog posts from other interns in previous seasons about their various experiences and what to expect. It was so much more than what I expected”
Intern Stephanie: “I was pretty much telling myself too much sun, I’m not going to get any good pictures – what am I even doing here?
Intern Patricia: “I purchased a 50mm lens a few years ago because I heard it would be great for portrait shots.”
