APPLYING FOR INTERNSHIPS

Unfortunately when applying for internships at the time I either didn’t get a response from some people or because of the time of season companies had already had people coming in to work.

I had asked in a few photographic shops in Chatham which had said no.

There was an interior designer who I had a referral from a friend who I text messaged and the took ages to get back to me but then said they couldn’t do anything until summer.

This was an email sent to a retoucher.

I had also messaged a few photographers that I followed on instagram to see if I could even assist them on a shot here and there, but some didn’t get back and the ones that did I couldn’t do work experience with as they were free lance and didn’t have public liability insurance.

I then emailed Cityscapes digital where I had previously done work experience with in London and had really enjoyed it. I first sent an email to the enquires but knew that they might not get back to me on there, so rang the company explained I had been there before under someone called Peter Scott, a lady then gave me her email which I emailed attaching a cover letter. I didn’t hear back from her after a while even though she said it was something that was possible. I remembered that I had Peters number from previous so emailed him asking for his email and explained the situation, he said that he remembered me and would enjoy to have me back. I then resent the email to him with attaching cover letter. Unfortunately at this point he was then out of the office and when he got back had to ask his art directing team and I was waiting to hear back. Unfortunately again he had people already doing work there at that time but said I would be free to go in June. I was then looking around for another placement but as I started to do some work for Singapore Lounge and Gordon House Hotel I asked to do the placement in June when it will be available. Over the summer I’m also looking at emailing the retoucher again to go in and work alongside him as there was so many positive reviews from what it was like over there which I would be interested in experiencing. So I have emailed both saying if possible I would like to come in whenever they could accommodate me.
