Velem is seeking an enthusiastic individual who wants to gain hands-on experience with post production for commercial photography. We’re looking to find a candidate specifically interested in a producer’s role.
ABOUT OUR STUDIO
We are a production and post studio located in New York’s Flatiron district. With our foundation rooted in beauty and fashion retouching, we work with clients at every level of the creative process – from concept development and shoot production, to post and final delivery. Take a look at our website (velem.com) and our Instagram (@velem) for a sampling of our work.
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
Our interns have a unique opportunity to engage with the entire post production process in a genuinely supportive environment. You’ll be learning from and working along side our seasoned staff, gaining an insider's understanding of what goes into crafting high-end still life, fashion and beauty images. During the first 2 weeks, we work with our interns to identify personalized S.M.A.R.T. goals and help them work towards those goals during their time with us. Our ultimate hope is that our interns strengthen their skill set and artistic eye, feeling confident for future work in post production and other creative industries. For student applicants, we do indeed offer school credit.
We work with each intern to develop a consistent schedule that meets 2-3 days a week, from 10 AM to 6 PM, for a total of 12 weeks (or the weekly equivalent of 3 months).
Above all you must be organized, detail-oriented and a strong verbal communicator. While most internship descriptions include these attributes, for our internship it’s crucial. We aren’t looking for people who can simply show up to the studio and observe quietly. We are seeking the right fit – someone who’s attentive and asks questions. We don’t expect you to know much, if anything about post production, but you should absolutely be eager to learn and be self-motivated. You should have an interest in photography, art, fashion and design and have a passion for your own interests. The goal is to increase your knowledge and capabilities.
While previous experience in production isn’t a requirement
- Assisting our producers with all active jobs, from intake to final delivery, learning about their role and daily functions
- Sitting in with the producers and retouchers on all image reviews
- Learning and integrating into our studio’s team structure and workflow
- Assisting our Technical Director manage our studio’s printers

1 – Why you would like to work with us at Velem.
2 – Why you think you would be a fantastic fit (HINT: simply repeating the above description doesn’t count).
