Idaho Construction Project

May 18th, 2016

Last week i went out to Pocatello, ID to shoot construction images for a company building an addition to a malting facility. I spent the day just documenting all the different trade workers doing their thing. It was a lot of fun and its crazy all the work and logistics and different people working on a huge project like this. Here are a few photos from the day. I’ll be heading back out again in a few months to shoot additional images as the project progresses.

Here’s the fold-out cover of the March issue of The Winged M. We shot this photo of the board of trustees a few weeks ago at the Multnomah Athletic Club with the two-page spread in mind, which was a fun project.

Here’s a clip from the March issue of Alaska Airlines Magazine. It features a three page story called “Gearing up to take great photos” and interviews some really great photographers like Art Wolfe. They also featured me in there for some reason. Kind of cool. You can pick up a copy on your next flight.

This is a paid internship, working about 20-25 hours per week. This is a shooting and assisting position.

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. Limited pool gear is provided if you do not have your own.
