Typical roles for remote photography internships

Here are a few examples of roles that our virtual photography interns have taken on before:

  • Edits and Adjustments

    When it comes to the photography field, editing skills are just as important as taking the photos themselves. Interns are likely to use Photoshop and Lightroom, and gain experience cropping images, adjusting color, exposure, and lighting, among other things. This is an excellent way to hone key photography skills and begin building a portfolio of samples.

  • Social Media Management

    Many photography studios, creative firms, and individual photographers use social media to share and promote their work. Interns may create and manage publication calendars for Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, and other platforms, and edit images to prepare them for the appropriate platforms.

  • Studio Organization

    Studio management is a common element of many remote internships in photography. Interns learn about everything that goes into making top-quality images, from planning and booking shoots, to setting up lighting, to communicating with clients. Planning for shoots is a key part of these roles, and interns are often tasked with ensuring everything is ready for things to go smoothly when the lead photographer arrives.

  • Project Management

    Project management skills are essential for a successful photography business. Interns gain a glimpse into the business side of the field, and often take part in larger-scale commercial photography assignments. Tasks may include coordinating meetings and bookings between different photographers, shoot directors, and clients, and drafting project budgets and timelines.
