Volunteer & Internship Opportunities

There are many opportunities to be part of our community; share your skills, and help us build this living, breathing, photo destination called Photoville.

It takes a community to build a village, and the photo community is no exception. The success of any organization lies squarely in its devotion to partnerships, creative collaborations, and community-focused spirit.

We are looking for passionate, dedicated, and skilled interns to work with us starting now leading up to Photoville — our biggest event of the year in September. Time and days will be dependent on each person and their respective duties.

Here at United Photo Industries we are not about wasting time on menial tasks; we are a small, determined group of people who want to make things happen, and we are looking for like-minded people to join our ranks! If you are interested in working with us — just reach out!
