First Week as a PennLive Intern (ft. so many pictures)

June 9th, 2015

You know you’re in a happy place when despite dealing with a dead laptop and a lamp fire, you’d still be able to describe your week as great.

This has been my first week in Harrisburg, PA, interning for PennLive. I absolutely love it here; I’m feeding off the energy of the staff here. I love the environment here, everyone has been so helpful, the photo staff is especially wonderful, and everyone wants to try new things and get creative, and are still laid back and want to have fun at work. I vibe really well here. I am one happy PJ.

I spent my first day getting all sorts of programs installed into my computer (which would promptly die a week later) and learning how to use the back-end of the website, which I’m still learning as I go on.

After that Joe, my boss, threw me in the game and has treated me like another staffer. I’m in such a happy place that I’m making pictures I’m actually starting to be happy with, immersing myself in the community around me, and just all around working really hard and really enjoying myself. This week I’ve shot a few graduations, a softball game, a VFW event, and of course construction (what would an interns first week be without a few photos of dirt and hardhats and cranes??)

Here’s to the first of twelve great weeks in midstate PA. Thanks for reading my words; here are some frames I made.
