Internship Opportunity: Darkroom and Framing intern
Hidden Light LLC is a commercial darkroom and photographic resource specializing in hand-made fine-art printmaking. The Framing Department is a custom framing shop dedicated to helping artists display their works in the best way possible.
The two operations are in the same building and are run by the same staff. We are seeking a part-time (15-20 hours/week) intern who will have the opportunity to work in both areas; printing and framing.
Responsibilities will include:
- Customer service, phone calls and administrative tasks
- Ensuring the gallery is kept clean and presentable
- Taking orders for printing, film development, and framing
- Assist with special events, including show openings, workshops, and client visits
- Assisting with darkroom as well as digital printing
- Assisting with frame preparation and presentation
Qualifications and Skills
Candidate must be organized and self-motivated. Attention to detail and strong communication skills are paramount. An interest and knowledge of photography and related jargon is also required.
Familiarity with Google Apps (gmail, google drive, etc) as well as the Adobe Suite (LR, PS) and the apple operating system are preferred.
While the position is unpaid, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to make prints of their own photographs with each printing process we offer; silver gelatin, piezography, platinum palladium, and color inkjet. The intern will also be allowed to process their own black and white film for free while learning to use the JOBO Autolab. Framing materials will also be provided at cost for the intern to prepare their own material for a show.
At the conclusion of the internship (one semester, or 4 months) the intern will be offered the gallery space in the building to produce and hang their own photography show for one month, free of charge.
If applicable, school credit is offered for this internship.
