School nudist camp
I feel very fortunate to be an intern at a newspaper with such a rich history of photography.
The staff in the graphics department was extremely helpful and supportive as well, and I won’t forget that.
Kylie and I tag-teamed a few assignments, such as the Oregon Country Fair and a fire-fighting camp for young women.
Mo and I held down Sundays at The Guard to cover an arm-wrestling competition, a tractor pull and a classic car show.
During the internship, I was able to travel all over Lane County and experience things I would not normally seek out on my own.
One day I was out on the coast in Dunes City going door to door talking with residents about issues with their water supply.
Any future photo interns at The Register-Guard will definitely enjoy the variety of assignments they will go on.
My advice to them as to take the job head-on and do their best to learn from the experienced staff at The Guard. You’ll mostly likely find him on the sidelines at Oregon sporting events wearing his trademark white hat.
Sure, I had photographed a few political rallies and features.
In the months leading up to the internship, I began reading through editions of The Register-Guard to get a sense for the style and quality of images it publishes.
I found out that The Guard has an excellent team of photographers in Chris Pietsch, Brian Davies and Andy Nelson.
It was my job, along with fellow Snowden intern and SOJC student Kylie Juggert, to pick up the slack and produce most of the non-sports content that week.
Kylie started a week before I did, so they made her shoot photos in addition to video.
