Wanted: Student photographer for internship

Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Student Photographer Intern
Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Dean’s Office

Undergraduate Academic Affairs (UAA) seeks a student to photograph the many and varied events, activities, and communities of UAA programs. Responsibilities include coordinating photo shoots, directing subjects, archiving photos, developing positive working relationships with UAA staff, presenting ideas for images, and (of course) lots and lots of photographing in a photojournalism style that conveys the appropriate message.

Reports to the Communications Director.

Successful intern will:

  • Have a great, creative eye for photojournalism and a portfolio to back it up (or the beginnings of one);
  • Take initiative and be proactive about setting up photo shoots;
  • Communicate well;
  • Be flexible and organized;
  • Have an innate ability to follow through;
  • Be a member of a team;
  • Understand how photos will be used and take and organize images with a user mindset.

With this internship, you have the opportunity to build your photography portfolio (with a photojournalistic angle in particular), gain experience in a professional environment, improve your photography, work in a supportive environment, get your work published in University publications, and begin to build a professional network.

Photos will be digital. Intern may check out camera from Student Technology Fee or use his or her own.

5-7 hours per week; hours vary due to nature of work and at times include evenings or weekends.

Two quarter minimum commitment. This internship is unpaid, but it is possible to earn credit. If you’re interested in earning credit, please review the information on the Carlson Center web site.

To apply, send cover letter, resume, and 5-7 photo samples in a photojournalist style to:
