This year, we are splitting the internship program up into 2 divisions: Weddings & Studio! Please indicate which division you would be most interested in applying to when submitting your resume.
Internship in a super awesome studio environment with an amazing, inspiring, creative, fun team! We are looking for a person (or persons) with passion for Photography as well as Business/Marketing/Social Media.
The KWP Internship program cultivates a strong belief in bringing up the next generation of creative professionals. We harbor a team and family atmosphere and conduct bi-weekly team meetings with a schedule, assignments, and tasks. This is an environment where you are here to learn and build a skill set and portfolio pieces for your future goals.
The internship is not specific to photography, and in the past, we have had interns who have moved on to positions in event planning, video production, set design, international business and more.
Some tasks may include:
Managing social media
Research and interviewing other creative professionals

Some personal assistant work (ie: gear organization, errands, studio maintenance)
