Are you the type of person who has decided to go all in on a career in photography or video? Are you interested in getting real-world experience putting together slideshows or editing videos?
Good news: The Houston Press is looking for a photo intern and a multimedia intern and we'll give you plenty of opportunity to shine.
Let's talk photos first.
The photo intern works with our art director and web editor to shoot and put together slideshows covering a variety of events, including art openings, festivals, concerts and more. You may also get the chance to assist on cover shoots, features and restaurant photography. The art director will give you feedback on your work along the way, and your photos from the slideshows and blogs may end up in print.
As for the multimedia intern, you'll work with the editors, reporters, web editor and art director to put together two brief segments each week, as well as two long-term projects over the course of the semester. This means you'll need to be comfortable with communicating, working independently and juggling multiple projects with tight deadlines.
Multimedia candidates must be proficient in Apple Final Cut Pro X and Compressor, with some knowledge of Apple Motion as well as any editing software the intern may own.

Now this is important: You have to be a student to be an intern for the Press. That means you have to be enrolled in school and be able to receive intern credits for your time with us. We require a minimum of 15 hours a week in the internship.
Also, you must have reliable transportation; we'll reimburse for mileage and assignment expenses. The internship itself is unpaid.
We have cameras and accessories, but generally speaking equipment is not provided, so make sure you have the gear to do the job.
Interested in interning with us? Send a résumé and samples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org, and make sure to include "Multimedia Intern" or "Photo Intern" and "Houston Press" in the subject line. Thanks, and good luck!
