Studio Assistant (Internship)

Closing: December 4th 2017

Next Opening: January 2018

Rankin Photography and Hunger Publishing are looking for Studio Assistants to support our busy team. This internship is a genuine opportunity to get involved in and gain experience in the studio aspects of our business.

Our Studio Internships are designed specifically to support those who have a genuine and demonstrable passion for photography and the industry, but who may not have had an opportunity to work professionally within these areas before.

Our internships are for 6 months. They are paid at National Living Wage and are full-time (40 hours per week). As such you need to hold the right to work in the UK. We also require you to be flexible and available to work weekends when necessary.

Although no employment is guaranteed all interns who successfully complete their internship having proven they have the right aptitude will be kept in contact with regarding future opportunities. Typically talented interns are invited to join our Photographic Assistants and Film team in trainee and junior roles.

Ultimately, as with any opportunity, the more you put into the role the more you will get back.

The ideal candidate would be a film production or photography graduate who is very hard working, a quick learner, conscientious and willing to get involved in a variety of tasks typical to a Runner across the studio and business.

A qualification in photography is not necessary, though some knowledge of photography, lighting, and studio equipment would be beneficial.  What is more important is a can-do attitude and a strong drive for a career in the photo or film industry.

This is a varied and ‘hands on’ role, which requires an extremely organized, level-headed person, comfortable in a busy and demanding studio environment.

Reporting to the Studio Manager, Studio Interns will typically:

  • Prepare and maintain the studio, including Styling, Kitchen and Studio to a high standard.
  • Maintaining a clean and tidy workplace throughout the day.
  • Returning studio to a high standard at the end of each shoot.


  • Full drivers licence
  • Demonstrable passion for photography and/or film
  • Demonstrable respect for our brand
  • Can do positive attitude – ready to muck in
  • Energy and drive to succeed


  • Successful completion of a related degree

If you are able to stay smiling and go the extra mile at the end of long day then we’d like to hear from you.


Please email: [email protected] with ‘Your Name – Studio Assistant Intern’ in the subject field, attaching a CV and cover letter, of no more than 500 words addressing the requirements listed.

Candidates unable to prove their right to work in the UK will not be shortlisted.

Please note that we are unable to respond to every application due to the volume received. Only successful candidates will be contacted.
