Childrens Portrait Studio Intern in Lincoln Square (Posted: April 24th)

Posted on: April 27, 2012

Hello people!

We are an upscale children’s photography studio in Lincoln Square looking for an intern to help us out with Administrative Work & Portrait Retouching (primarily) and Design Work (secondarily) and some Photography (eventually). Typical tasks are answering phones, corresponding with clients, booking appointments, assisting clients in ordering appointments, retouching portraits, packaging orders for clients, laying out images & text for holiday cards and birth announcements, and possibly, down the road, doing some actual photography sessions.

Miscellaneous tasks include some framing, light cleaning, and assisting with odd jobs when needed. This is a part-time, paid internship (minimum of 3 months), but if we are a good fit for each other, it would be lovely to have you stay on as an assistant. It’s VERY important that you are comfortable around kids and babies (and that you pretty much adore them). We’d also love it if you are a positive people-person with a strong work ethic, and of course, you should have a well-groomed appearance.

Skills should include good to great experience with Adobe’s Creative Suite. Graphic Designers will be considered with priority. We’ll teach you portrait retouching, but you need to have basic to intermediate knowledge of Photoshop. Photographic skills are helpful but not necessary. (If you are awesome with kids, we will teach you photography.) Any customer service experience or past work in reception or administrative duties is ideal. You should have strong attention to detail. Great spellers get extra gold stars. We’re looking for someone who is always NICE and always professional.

Please send a cover letter AND resume to the email listed here. We love resumes with no typos, hint hint. And please, no phone calls, just emails. We will reply to you if we are interested in talking more. Proper interview attire will be expected. (Another hint: no gym shoes or sweatshirts folks!)

Due to the high response of submissions, we will unfortunately not be able to respond to everyone. Thank you in advance for your interest and best wishes in your future endeavors!

Some details: the internship pays $8.25-10 an hour to start, pay to increase if you stay on as an assistant. Part-time, 2 days a week–Saturdays are a MUST (although not always necessary). As an assistant, employment can be extended to 3-4 days a week and possible health care benefits. This would be a great fit for recent grads looking to get real world experience and to grow their portfolio. Looking forward to meeting you!
