Description

This is a fantastic opportunity to grow into the world of fashion and design through your own inspiration and creativity! While building your technical skills of taking photos, and filming videos you will learn the ins and outs of fashion, sales and marketing.

This is a HANDS ON experience that will provide you with the skills necessary to build your business portfolio, and move forward in your career. Fashion Photography & Videography is recognized as an extremely glamorous profession, and is a highly creative career! This internship can lead to a paid contract position after a 6-month review.
