Video and Photography Journalism Internship




Lensmen Photography and Video Production have been in business since 1952. From the beginning, Lensmen have been passionate about getting students and young professionals, the start they need in the industry. We have developed a very well established internship for video and photography. We now want to broaden our internship opportunities to those interested in photo/video journalism.

A side of our video production we are aiming to grow in the new year is producing video news stories – students would be working alongside a freelancer producer helping with finding, researching, recording and editing news stories. At Lensmen, we have syndication to major newspapers and publications around Ireland. You can see some of the video stories we have on our website and also on Dublin Live.

 

We are also possibly looking for writers to help develop our blog, this would be perfect for those with a big interest in post-production/video/photography/droning etc or about the work we do here at Lensmen or perhaps even of their interest pieces, as we want to make our blog a place where people can read interesting posts.
