CREW JOB: Photojournalists
(Ongoing, Multiple Positions)
Prerequisites: General computer literacy, basic photographic skills, interest and ability to work nighttime hours, responsible and professional attitude in 21+ environments, willingness to learn use of Web-related software, love of live music.
Description: Photograph live performances with Olympus D600L, Fuji FinePix 2800, or Canon GL-1 digital camera; optimize images for the Web on a Macintosh computer with Adobe Photoshop/ImageReady; edit images with captions into the Paparazzi Web pages of the Big Heavy World site with Adobe GoLive.
Practical Objective: Expand a permanent historical online photographic archive of Burlington-area live music performances.
Big Heavy World has been promoting and archiving the Burlington music scene since 1996. Our existence and success is due to participation by volunteers and interns who share our extreme enthusiasm; we simply wouldn’t exist without their support.
Our internship program allows a greater level of freedom and creativity than one might expect, but also demands a high level of responsibility and dedication to each mission. As a supervised work experience for academic credit, Big Heavy World internships guarantee personal and professional development.
