Josh Russell is a true beleiver that if you want something you have to go and reach for it yourself. With that being said he has dedicated his time in helping others reach their photography goals faster than he did. As a "student of the internet" at a time when not everything was easily attainable he built a career from the ground up. Now he has developed a strategy to help young and new photographers get their first step into the photography and cinematography industry.

Josh's Intern Program is designed to help newer photographers streamline their learning and jump right into the world of photography. Interns are required to attend at least 2 to 3 shoots per month. Josh usually has 8 shoots or more per month so he asks for his interns to attend at least 2 to 3 and be active in the program as well as spend some time at the studio learning the basics of running/operating a photo studio.
Interns are not allowed to shoot for the first month of the program and during this time will be dragging bags, getting food, holding lights, etc. After this month training the Intern is given more opportunities to shoot. The Intern Program is unpaid and Interns are responsible for all of their own expenses.
