  • Writing blog posts
  • What it takes to have a successful wedding, session, and styled shoot
  • How to design and put on a styled shoot
  • How to shoot in film
  • Build a portfolio of images you can use!

This is an unpaid position, but we are happy to work with you to obtain college credit if that is something your school offers. I am so confident that this internship will offer you numerous hands-on learning opportunities to grow from! We will help you learn what it takes to keep our company running and on top of things! I view these internships as an opportunity to provide you with a toolkit of knowledge that you can utilize in your own business and future.

Y’all I spend countless hours either sitting at a computer, at a microscope, sitting in a lab alone, or driving. I don’t mind one bit because I utilize all that ‘alone’ time to listen to podcasts! I’m always looking for ways to keep learning and podcasts have been wonderful for that. Plus, music tends to make me tired after a while and sometimes audio books are just too long….but podcasts…they’re just right!

I have found some inspiring and some just plain funny podcasts that always brighten my day, so I wanted to share them with you. I hope you can check them out.

My 10 favorite podcasts

Goal Digger with Jenna Kutcher – A lifestyle podcast for all you creative ladies out there! You’ll get so many good ideas from this lady.

This American Life – An oldie but a goodie! I’ve been listening to this show for years and continue to love the amazing stories they put out! Ira Glass talks about a variety of stories…you’ll just have to check it out!

Start Up by Gimlet Media –  They interview businesses as they are starting up. Super interesting even if you’re not a business owner!

Gilmore Guys – All my Gilmore Girls fans you’ll love this one! These guys talk about each and every episode of Gilmore Girls. It’s hilarious and will make you feel better any day of the week.

Ted Radio Hour – If you want to feel inspired about anything, this is your show! I often feel more excited about any task after listening to an episode.

The Art of Photography – You know I couldn’t get through this list without having one photography podcast! There is some great information in this one, but it is in video form. Often I just listen, but it does help to sometimes watch it.

Magic Lessons by Elizabeth Gilbert – There haven’t been any new episodes in a while, but there is a lot of golden nuggets tucked away in this podcast.

Radio Lab – This is the scientist in me! They talk about a variety of mysteries in science. It’s super fun and it’s not technical at all…so everyone can enjoy this one!

More Perfect – This is made by the same people who make Radio Lab. It’s about the Supreme Court system. I know it doesn’t sound fascinating, but it truly is. Give it a try!

Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! – It’s kind of a gameshow podcast. They quiz people on current events and pop culture. It always helps me stay awake if I’m really dragging…

If you’re a podcast listener please comment below! I’d love to know what your favorites are! I am always on the hunt for great new shows! Also, if you check out one of these podcasts let me know what you think. 🙂
