Overview

As part of the Photo Services team, Photography Practicum participants learn through exposure to a wide range of projects under the supervision and mentorship of Banff Centre staff and faculty.    

What does the program offer?

Practical skills are developed through exposure to all types of photography and to different areas of Banff Centre including the arts, leadership, mountain culture, and conference business.

This unique position allows each individual to gain real world experience in a high production environment where the quality of work and level of service are paramount. These skills will be applied in studio and on-location for diverse Banff Centre projects. The program strives to fill in the gaps left after formal education by providing a real-world work environment with training and skill building.    

Who should apply?

Do you have a keen interest in a career in photography, a willingness to learn, and a desire to broaden your experience? If yes, we'd love to hear from you! 

As well as being passionate about photography, applicants should have formal training/education in photography as well as an understanding of all the basics of composition and exposure, and lighting for studio and location. Applicants should be familiar with a variety of cameras and have experience using Photoshop or other image processing programs.

Although participation in this program will enhance the technical skills of any photographer, those interested in pursuing a career in commercial photography will find this program especially valuable. Strong communication skills both verbally and in writing are essential. 

Photographers from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply, with a special invitation to individuals of Indigenous descent.

Eligibility

As this program exceeds six months in length, enrolment is limited to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. This is due to changes made by the Government of Canada to international student visa regulations, effective June 1, 2014. 

Prizes Details: 

Application fee: $65

Indigenous applicants: $35

*The Tuition fee is covered 100% by financial assistance from Banff Centre.

Successful applicants will receive a daily living allowance while part of the program. Practicums are responsible for their own room and board costs but are eligible for subsidized Banff Centre housing based on availability.
