Description

Southeastern Guide Dogs, Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2014 Nonprofit of the Year, has the distinction of being dually accredited by the two premier, global accreditation bodies: the International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF) and Assistance Dogs International (ADI). Founded in 1982 in Palmetto, Florida, the organization employs the latest in canine development and behavior research to create and nurture partnerships between visually impaired individuals and extraordinary guide dogs.

Southeastern Guide Dogs serves more than 400 graduates across the U.S. and continues to place more than 100 dogs each year into careers benefiting people with visual impairments, and veterans. The charity provides all of its services free of charge and receives no government funding.

The ideal photography intern is a creative, friendly person who is comfortable with a camera, people, and dogs, and who has the stamina to walk for extended periods. This 4.5-week (part-time) internship involves shadowing an adult class of nine visually impaired individuals and their new guide dogs throughout their training regimen. In locations such as our 33-acre Palmetto campus, Bradenton residential neighborhoods, and Sarasota / St. Petersburg / Tampa urban areas, the intern will act as “pup-parazzi” and take still photographs in unique settings, capturing memorable, emotional, and active moments of students training with their guide dogs.

After three weeks of shooting photos, the intern will create a meaningful slide show, set to music, to be presented to graduates, guests, staff, and supporters at the class graduation ceremony. The 4.5 week internship will involve approximately 40 – 60 hours, with a flexible schedule depending on the Southeastern Guide Dogs class schedule.
