Ohio Weslyan University
I really enjoyed this internship because it allowed me to learn about the different types of photography businesses. For example, I experienced both a corporate photography job and a photojournalism job.

I enjoyed learning the business aspects of photography along with more information about cameras, lens, and photography itself. I also enjoyed being able to experience professional photography shoots from a hands on perspective by helping with set ups, holding equipment, and learning from professionals.Least Enjoyed:
My least favorite part of my experience was the realization of how inconsistent the scheduling is as a professional photographer. It had never realized that as a photographer you could have a few shoots in one day and nothing the next. It is very different from a typical eight-hour workday I am use to hearing about.What I Learned:
I have learned what it is like to be a professional photographer and what it takes to successfully run a business doing so. I learned that to be successful in this field you must be well organized, good with people, and obviously a good photographer. Also, I now know more about different lens and flashes that I had no experience using before. Lastly, through this experience I have confirmed my interest in pursuing photography.
