20 DAYS INTERNSHIP SCHEDULE

1 Week

You will kick-off your internship with an immersive introduction of Digital Underwater Photography and all that it comes with. Getting a first-hand interaction with your equipment, learning how to setup your camera gear, practicing your buoyancy and fin-kick all while holding your camera. After all the theory you have digested and active pool days, you will get the chance to put all you have learnt into action in a 3 days overnight dive trip in Tulamben.

2 Week

The next stage of your internship is going to be digitally intense. After spending much time in the ocean and capturing your underwater journey, you will spend a total of 32 hours or more behind the computer enhancing your editing skills. Repeating that sequence is key to perfection throughout this week. Different terrains require different skill set; therefore, you will also get to experience underwater photography in Padang Bay and Nusa Penida to challenge your learnt skills in different terrains.

3 Week

On the final week of this internship, you will use the skills that you have just aquired in real-world scenarios. Shooting footage of real customers in the pool as well as in the ocean as a professional photographer for the very first time. By now, you would be aware that capturing the perfect moment with people and marine life are completely different, you will learn how to master the proper skill set. Above all, additional workshops to teach you how to create your professional portfolio and enhance your digital presence are the last steps to take before your graduation.

Graduation

Upon completion and before receiving your graduation certificate: Combining all your skills to create your masterpiece, and you will have the chance to finish your internship with the possibility of winning your first photography award!
