Interns are an important part of the V.K.Rees team. I offer 6 month long photography internships, all year long, in Los Angeles, CA. I generally only take on one or two interns at a time.
Before you apply, please take some time to review the list here. These are the kinds of tasks that my team and I usually need interns to do. If you are not interested in performing these kinds of tasks, that’s cool, this just isn’t the right internship for you. No need to apply.
Also, please note that this internship is unpaid. However, I take pride in working closely with interns and teaching them as much as possible- going so far as to get together with the interns a few times throughout the internship to answer all of their career and photography questions. I’m picky about which interns to work with because I want to be sure you get as much out of our professional relationship as I do.
We are located in Highland Park, CA. Please be sure you are able to commute to Highland Park a few times a week before applying.
