Many of you may be familiar with the way we create opportunities for our students as they hone their talents in their specific areas of photography. One of the most notable Industry Engagement Programs at PSC is our tie up with The Age newspaper. Specifically organised for those in the photojournalism major, the internship gives selected students a chance to work with staff photographers from The Age, as well as the experience of working 'independently to produce a range of published work in various sections of the paper'.
Our part time students, Daniel Pockett and Adrianne Harrowfield, were chosen in 2015 as a result of their hard work and rich folios. Working over the period of December to January, Daniel and Adrianne had their work published in print and online. They immensely enjoyed the opportunity of working towards deadlines and receiving 'valuable mentoring from established professionals at both the photographic and editorial level'.
Salona Chithiray - a PSC graduate who also studied part time and was selected for this exclusive internship with The Age in 2014, directed, filmed and edited this year's highlights. Here's a snapshot of the exciting experience that PSC offers:
PSC's industry opportunities provide work experience to those who are passionate about the craft, throughout their time here. We aim to give students the real-world exposure they deserve, allowing their amazing talents to be shared with those in the field of photography. Our aim is to support our students as they carve out successful and prolific careers for themselves. For more information on our programs, visit our website.
