I’ll let him post more on it himself, but for now here’s a link to his work as it appears on our website.
I took this photo in Fargo North Dakota of the Utah Air National Guard Firefighters. This shot was taken in front of the aircraft fire trainer after the firefighters spent a long morning putting the same fires out over and over.
The Daily Herald in Provo, Utah is looking for its next intern. The paid internship will start in early July and run 6 months. Timing is somewhat flexible but the intern must stay through Jan 1. The intern is an important part of our photo staff and is treated the same as the staff photographers. They will work 40 hours a week and will cover a variety of daily assignments. On average they should expect to have 2-3 assignments a day. In addition, each photographer is given the chance to find, shoot and write a photo story each month for one of our weekly Monday Close Ups, which run front page. Our small photo staff means that the intern’s photos will be heavily used every day. It also means that they can get help editing and get feedback from our editor and/or photographers on a regular basis. We are a tight-knit group that likes to get lunch together and have fun.
Our paper has a daily circulation of over 30,000, with a strong emphasis on our digital platforms, and covers all of Utah County, with a population of over 500,000 about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City. Our coverage includes all BYU athletics, high school sports, and the occasional Utah Jazz NBA game. We also cover a lot of small-town community news events. The county ranges from dense small-city and suburban communities to spacious farmland, with the 11,000 ft. Wasatch Mountains as a backdrop. World class skiing, hiking, climbing and mountain biking are readily available.
If you are interested in joining our team, submit a cover letter, resume, and a CD containing a portfolio to our photo editor, Mark Johnston, at the below address. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2013. Any additional inquiries can be directed to Mr. Johnston.
