Social Media Micro-Internship

One of the objectives of Shelby Borys Photography and May the Photo Be With You, is to create meaningful mentorship opportunities, provide guidance to future photography professionals, and to exchange skill sets as applicable. For this particular micro-internship, you will use your experience and skills with social media to support the online conversations of Shelby’s brand. Your ability to teach is important in order to benefit from collaborating, as Shelby in turn will be teaching you essentials in the business of photography.

The focus of this project is on reframing the online presence of May The Photo Be With You on social media channels, as determined (together) to be relevant. You will work with Shelby to assess the current state of presence, as well as the business objectives. For example, the intent is not to post every day, but to create a canvas that reflects Shelby’s portfolio and professional values. Shelby recognizes that your recommendation may be to start from scratch on certain platforms, depending on your advice and experience.

You will be provided with current profile pictures, logos and brand icons as needed.
