NYC Internship with Glasshouse Assignment

Glasshouse Assignment is a boutique assignment representation agency. Within our family of photographers, we offer a mix of commercially established and emerging talent. Glasshouse does not intend to be just another agency. We’re not knocking them, we just like to think we do things a little differently here. We are big enough to handle any project, yet small enough to give the personal care and attention that forms lasting relationships with both our photographers and clients. We are proud to represent great people and work hard to get them the kind of work that gets them excited.

We are currently seeking a Fall/Winter intern. This is a great opportunity for students who are eager to learn more about both photography and advertising business. Responsibilities will include: uploading images to the website; writing features and uploading tearsheets for the blog; managing all social media accounts; helping to put together photographers' promotional cards; and attending photo shoots. This will be a credit-based, unpaid internship. We ask that applicants be able to work 2-4 days a week.

Interested applicants, please send resume and cover letter to jamie@glasshouseassignment.com
