Apply to Become a DIS Student Photographer
What Do DIS Student Photographers Do?
Student Photographers tell the story of all aspects of the DIS experience through photography. As visual storytellers, they assist the Marketing & Communications Department in documenting student life at DIS – everywhere from the quiet moments during a morning commute to DIS to an exciting afternoon Field Study.
Student Photographers create visually compelling content for both print and digital channels, such as the annual print catalog, website, social media, and advertisements. Assignments may include:
- Photographing Study Tours, Field Studies, and classrooms
- Taking over social media accounts (primarily on Instagram Stories)
- Capturing Copenhagen and/or Stockholm (depending on where the photographer is studying)
Why Should You Apply?
- You’ll build your skill set and portfolio abroad, and your photos will be used in DIS catalog, web, advertising, and social media
- Your time spent with the Marketing & Communications Team can be noted as a non-credit internship on your future resume
Note: This is an experience-building ambassadorship and is not a paid position.
What Are We Looking For?
- Photographers with intermediate or above photography skills, who are proficient in using DSLR cameras with experience in editing software such as Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom
- Storytellers with a strong passion for digital media, branding, and marketing, and ability to utilize social media platforms (primarily Instagram)
- Ambassadors who are outgoing and interested in connecting with current students as well as inspiring future students, and enjoying capturing people-centered stories
