Job Type Intern




The Photo Studio Intern [PSI] is an important member of the e-commerce team.  The PSI’s work enables Due West to update web pages quickly with images and product descriptions of newly arrived merchandise.  This maximizes the available selling time for every item in inventory.  Furthermore, good performance of the PSI’s tasks enables timely execution of communication campaigns involving email, social media and advertising. In short, the PSI’s role contributes significantly to the company’s success.

The PSI ‘s role involves the organizing and safeguarding of photo studio assets, organizing merchandise required for photography, photographing the merchandise on models and mannequins, returning the goods to stock, organizing the digital images for photo-finish processing, and uploading processed images and product information to the website.

The successful candidate will be gregarious and team oriented, as the role requires very frequent collaboration with members of the inventory management team, the e-commerce team, the brick-and-mortar shop’s sales team, and management.  In addition, the candidate must be energetic, organized, detail-oriented, fond of learning new skills, and have a sense of urgency. Furthermore, the PSI must be able to handle a stressful schedule because the pace is hectic during early part of each fashion season.

Finally, a flexible mindset is essential, because, as the fashion season progresses and the need for new photography subsides, the PSI will be called upon to assist in other areas of the business until such time as there is a fresh inflow of new products,

It is important to note that while studio photography is involved, the role does not require great expertise in photography. Only an interest in learning the craft is required, as training will be provided, and standardized setup of studio cameras and lighting will make this task easy to learn and manage.

If your career interests involve fashion and e-commerce, this role could be right for you.  Send your resume to .  Use subject line Resume for PSI Role Full-Time or Resume for PSI Role Part-Time, as per your interest.  Or apply online from the Style Nine to Five website.
