We’re looking for an enthusiastic, hard-working, and passionate photography intern to join our photo studio team in our Columbus office. An interest in fashion and retail is essential, as is a positive, can-do attitude. This is a hands-on internship that provides the opportunity to work directly with the photo studio team on both of RG Barry’s brands: Dearfoams and baggallini. You will work on both ecommerce and marketing projects to gain a thorough understanding of the photography needs at a retail company. Day-to-day tasks will largely focus on assisting in the photo studio and managing a long-term project that you will present to the photo and creative teams at the close of your internship. The skills you hone here will be featured in a collaborative project developed throughout the 12-week duration of the internship program.
