Photography Intern (For Credit)

Make a difference in Brooklyn’s Backyard. Prospect Park Alliance, the non-profit organization that sustains, restores and advances the park in partnership with the City, is seeking a photography intern. 

This is a valuable opportunity for a student with an interest in photography and design, who wants to experience how photography is used in real-world marketing. This position will provide excellent exposure to the daily photography needs of a busy marketing department, where you will learn about photography for both print and web, and work hands on with our Graphic Designer and Creative Director to learn how photography helps drive our marketing efforts.

Responsibilities
Projects will be assigned based on the needs of the department and the interests and skills of the intern, and may include but are not limited to:

  • Working with our graphic designer to help build our cloud-based photo database. Intern will help edit photos and catalog photo shoots, including uploading, naming, resizing, and tagging photos.
  • Taking photos (portraits, action shots, and general beauty shots) of Prospect Park, to be published on the Alliance website and social media channels.
  • Working with professional photographers on shoots in the park as we build our database of curated photography.

Desired Qualifications
