We recently shot the Portland Thorns players who will be playing in the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada. We had a lot of fun on this shoot, photographing each girl with the flag from her home country. Can’t wait to see them play in June!

Portland Thorns goalkeeper Nadine Angerer went with us down to The Warrior Room in Milwaukie and wore some clothing made by local designer Evanem. Here’s a picture of her modeling the P-Town is Down line.
This is Genzebe Dibaba, 24-year old world indoor champion who was just named Sportswoman of the Year. We shot this picture for The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which presented the award to her in Shanghai a few weeks ago. She broke three world records, in three different events, over a two-week span: the 1,500-meter, 3,000-meter and two-mile event in Europe. She’s one of only three athletes to break three world records in such a short amount of time. Talk about hard work paying off!
We are now accepting applications for our 2015 summer internship.
Come and work for one of the busiest photo studios in Oregon. Studio clients include 5 different sports teams, magazines, newspapers, wedding clients, corporate clients, commercial clients and more. This is a paid internship, working about 20-25 hours per week. This is a shooting and assisting position. You will work directly with Craig Mitchelldyer on various shoots and events and be sent out on assignments on your own, including Portland Timbers, Portland Thorns and Hillsboro Hops games, community events and player appearances. You will also be assisting on editorial and commercial shoots and editing/captioning various assignments.
Preference is given to current college students or recent grads, but is open to anyone.
We are looking for a person with solid shooting skills – preferably a strong sports portfolio – who can work independently when needed, be on time and professional. You will be representing the studio and our clients when you are in the community and on assignment.
Former Mitchelldyer Photography interns have gone on to work for other sports teams, like the Arizona Diamondbacks, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers and Oregon State Beavers. Some have moved on to work for newspapers and/or have successful freelance careers.
During this internship you will learn valuable skills including shooting and transmitting on tight deadlines, working with a variety of different clients with different needs, and most importantly, the business of photography.
Start times can be flexible, but generally, beginning/middle of May until the end of August is typical.
