At age 15, our founder Collette started her photography career by doing a placement at a studio in Barnsley. During this placement, she gained an insight into the industry and the place of work by capturing wedding and portrait photography.
Collette appreciated the experience of working hands-on in a business. Recognising that placements give young people an opportunity to study communication, creative work as well as giving them a chance to work as a team. All of which isn’t something that can be taught, it needs to be experienced. Because of this, we’re keen to give other young people an opportunity to gain experience in creative subjects.
Introducing our interns
Tommy is 16 and studies film and television. At Picture Perfect Photography, he films and edits behind the scenes videos of our clients. These videos are a great way of giving our clients an idea of what to expect ahead of their photoshoot!
Behind the scenes videos can also give potential clients a sneak peek into how we work when doing a photoshoot. Working for us, Tommy’s favourite part is how “open we are to equipment and resources.” We want to make sure our interns have access to everything they need to create the best quality product for our clients.
Studying media film and TV at Barnsley college. Matthew is responsible for filming and editing the videos that we share across social media.
Since beginning working with us, Matthew has been able to go on photoshoots, giving him “a really great insight and an excellent opportunity to see how the industry operates”.
Matthew has been a big help – his skills have meant we’re able to share a deeper insight into the world of photography, such as when we shared ECommerce Photos – Marsden Weighing Scales and Steven Hall’s Fitness Shoot.
