Visuals by Helen is expanding the team for 2019 and is now hiring a photographer intern to hang out and learn about how to be a creative entrepreneur.
As a PAID photographer intern, you:
-Train as a wedding photographer associate—taking photos at 150+ person weddings.
You would get the less-pressure jobs such as detail shots, behind-the-scenes, getting ready photos and can be present for the fun bride+groom photos too.
-Train as a portrait photographer associate at family and individual sessions.
-Learn how to cull images after shoots, organize, back them up, edit and store away for later-use.
-He or she must have personal DSLR (Nikon preferred so I can offer lenses from my bag).
-He or she must have personal laptop.
-All extra equipment is a plus.
-Competitive hourly wage of $20/hour at weddings with room for financial growth if candidate brings hard work and talent to the table
-$10/hour at portrait sessions as these are less physically and creatively demanding.
-Paid drive-time to shoots at .50/mile.
-Must live in Wilmington, NC area (where we're based).
-Eager to learn and deliver excellent customer service skills (aka, be bubbly as heck).
-High School diploma or GED strongly preferred but not required.
-1-2 years of background in people photography.
-Ability to work long hours on your feet and get in weird positions for the artistic shot.
-Must be go-getter and able to go through motions without having to be told.
-Must be flexible and able to work weekends occasionally.
-Must be okay with going out of town for weddings occasionally. (YAY for traveling to new places!)
-Reliable, insured vehicle and valid U.S. driver's license (so you can come to office or leave early from weddings and get back home).
