My primary responsibility is to support the graphic designers, writers, and researchers while they create proposals for potential clients. I edit photos, create mock ups, conduct research, and bind books.
My tasks ranged from office administration such as preparation of expense reports, office organisation, and file maintenance, to more specialized tasks such as researching the provenance of objects and writing catalogue essays.
Using primarily Photoshop, I edit client photos from multiple sources to arrive at a consistent look and feel for use on websites and printed materials.
This non-profit program is run by Darcy Huebler and sponsored by CalArts. Once a week, a small group of students teach art to elementary school students for two hours, followed by teacher meetings to discuss techniques used, provide teacher feedback, and plan for the following weeks’ lesson.
As one of three summer interns with this photographer and his online photography resource website, I worked in all areas of the business, from working photo shoots to photo retouching and creating material for the educational website. A thorough knowledge of photography and photoshop was needed for this role.
I received my BFA in Photography and Media and minor in Math and Science in May 2014 with a 3.8 GPA (equivalent to a UK 1st). While at CalArts I helped curate a number of group shows, and also created my own solo exhibitions. I had the opportunity to have independent studies and mentorships with artists such as Allan Sekula, Harry Gamboa Jr., Jo Ann Callis, and Andrew Freeman.
