EM PHOTO-JOURNALISM Internship

TRAVEL. SHOOT PHOTOS. WRITE STORIES.


Internship Overview

The Photo-Journalism Internship offers you the opportunity to travel and interact with Experience Mission's partner communities all over the world. Each week you will journey to a new location and seek out a host of unique and engaging stories. You'll take photos and capture important moments, offering a voice to those who aren't often heard. This internship will allow you to see the world in a new way, interact with diverse people and document the development that is taking place.

Throughout this 6-9 week internship, you'll travel independently to a new location every 6-8 days. You'll be required to work quickly as a photographer, editor and reporter able to function both individually and in tandem with others. At the end of each week, you'll send a collection of photos and stories to EM's headquarters where they will be published and used throughout our web and print materials. Be ready to listen, learn and work hard as an avid storyteller.
