Calling all photo students! Miami New Times is recruiting for its Spring 2013 Photo Intern Program.
By "student," we do not mean "a student of life." There's no cash offered with this gig, only credits. Don't bother applying if this doesn't apply to you.
Still interested? Read on!
Interns work directly with the art director and web editor. They photograph slideshows on anything from burlesque shows to zombie walks. They also photograph an array of subjects for our arts, restaurant and news blogs. In the past, stellar interns have even photographed covers and café dishes for our print edition. Those interns who pass muster may also be invited to assist at cover shoots.
This internship is intended for intermediate and advanced photography students. Through the course of the internship, the art director will provide critiques on your work, but not lessons on how your camera works.
Reliable transportation is a must, and we will reimburse for mileage. And sorry, but this party is B.Y.O.E.: Bring Your Own Equipment.
To apply, send a résumé and links/samples to kristin.bjornsen[at]villagevoicemedia.com no later than January 11, 2013. Applications are considered in the order they are received. Please include "Spring 2013 Photo Internship" in the subject line.
