Mini Internship! :D {mt. pleasant tx, portrait and wedding photographer}

 Hey, y'all! Guess what! :D


Yep! I'm finally hosting an internship :D. I've thought about it for a couple years now, but always felt I needed some more experience. But after people asking and me being further in my business now, I'm finally having one :D.

Price: $325
When: August 14 and 15
Where: At my house :D
Who can apply: Girls 15 and up (I'll be accepting up to 5 girls)
What you'll need: a DSLR, a laptop, and at least the trial version of Photoshop Lightroom.

What it entails: two full days of learning about photography in a relaxed and fun environment! :D. We'll talk about shooting in manual, running photoshoots, editing, blogging, branding, marketing, pricing, etc... :). Meals and lodging are provided by me! :D (But bring a little cash for possible Sonic trips and such ;) ). Now, I just want to say I don't have every aspect of a photography business down perfectly (nobody does) and I continue to learn, but I do believe I have things to share that will help you begin :). Friday and Saturday are the official internship days, but I'd encourage everyone to come Thursday evening to meet, eat, and get to know each other a bit before we begin bright and early the next morning :D. We'll talk and work during the day (with a possible swimming interruption, so bring your swimsuit! :D) and then we'll have models each evening to practice running a photoshoot with! I'll also take portraits of each of you to use for your photography brand :D. And everyone is welcome to spend Saturday night as well and come to church with me Sunday morning! But if you're local and want to get back home, that's fine :).

So! If you'd like to apply, just copy and paste the questions below and email them back to me ( rachelleighphoto at gmail dot com ) with your answers! :D Application is open until July 17 and I will notify those accepted by email the next day :).

Phone number:
Website (or wherever you show your work):
Social media links:
Where do you live?
How would you be getting here?
Do you have any food allergies or anything medical I should know about?
What are some of your favorite things? :D
What direction do you desire your photography to go in?
What are the main things you hope to learn from this internship?
Whatever else you want to tell me :)

I look forward to hearing from y'all!! :D
