Description: The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program seeks a motivated photography student or advanced amateur looking to take the next step.
Under the supervision and instruction of a Staff Photographer and the Communications office, the Photo Apprentice (PA) will work as a primary or assistant shooter at Mural Arts events and associated projects. In addition to event work, there will be opportunities in a range of techniques, including (but not limited to) editorial, portrait and architectural. This is an assignment driven position and does not have regular hours. An average month will require 1 - 2 shoots per week with a 15-20 hour commitment per month. Events often take place weekends and evenings in neighborhoods throughout the city.
Instruction is built into the apprenticeship and work will be reviewed regularly.
