Portland Parks

Portland Parks Summer Events

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to Intern in the Marketing Department of City of Portland, Portland Parks & Recreation. I worked beside the Director of Marketing (Mark Ross) and learned a tremendous amount about the marketing industry through his mentorship and the overall internship experience. The work required that I visit all of the Portland Parks & Recreation summer events and act as the official photographer. The goal of these photos was to show all the ways people enjoy Portland's parks. This approach to taking pictures was an adjustment period in my photography style as it was the first time I took photos on the scene instead of pre-planning. Overall the experience helped me better understand how to formulate my angles and framing when shooting photos.
