Well i think it would be quite intresting to try to apply for a job as an intership or assistant or just a boy that runs and gets the coffe or works for free at a photo studio or with a professional photographer (freelancer).

And i was wondernig if anyone knew any tips or something along those lines, i m guessing a portfolio would be one of those obvious things. But as when it comes to a "CV" wouldnt you do "Photographer CV" so to speak?

Would be intresting to get some thoughts goign....and i hope no one ellse did a thread like this, i knw there are some scattered alla around but very small ones. Would be quite nice to have all the info gather in one thread

p.s. didnt knw where to put it so i placed it right here, though it would fit in professional photogrpahy section.

I moved your post to the "Going Pro?" section as some have already discussed this topic here.

I'm not too sure about this but what I know is that your chance will be boosted by at least 100% when you write "Currently an active member of Camera Labs forums."

I dont think that really wont work, unless the photographer himself is very aware of the photograph and discussion you have been partaking at the CL forums

Alex, I don't know myself, but i'd also like to.I think that you should make a portfolio, have some good quality shots in it to. Not really sure if you need a cv or not though.

Well, for a graphic design university interview you need an indate (no more than 2 years old) portfolio. so im guessing that photography would be the same.
Id say its also nice to have sketch books, not of sketches but like ideas, photos with critical analysis and stuff.

Doing crits on your own work is really important to :)

Have a standard CV to complement the portfolio that you will need to build. The content of the portfolio should play to your strength and is targeted at the type of photography for the internship. If you're thinking of studio work, then portraits and people photography would be where you would want to focus upon. When building this portfolio, print 8x10" as a minimum.

It's possible. The convenience factor of having a printed portfolio with you is indispensible, and you know that I'm building an online gallery to suppliment my portfolio. The online means does give your prospective employers/clients time to review your work in their own time.
