Could you give a brief description of your Photography & Graphic Design Internship?

I undertook my internship at Picos Media, a company located in South Yarra, Melbourne. I worked as a full-time graphic design intern and photography intern for three months.

Most of my work revolved around creating content and direct interactions with clients. However, as I am completing a minor in photography, I was fortunate enough to actively participate in photoshoots and contribute in the editing process. I love living in South Yarra, the fifteen-minute stroll along Chapel Street to reach the premises of Picos Media was an enjoyable part of my routine.

Overall, my photography and graphic designinternship at Picos Media was a valuable learning experience that has allowed me to gain practical skills and knowledge in the digital marketing industry. These skills can be carried out in my future studies and the workforce.
