Abstract/Artist Statement

This semester I had the opportunity to intern at Vinotheque Wine Cellars. I was originally hired to streamline their photographic database and to take commercial photographs of their products, which included cabinets, cooling units, doors, and miscellaneous replacement parts. Since being hired, I have been able to reorganize their previously disordered photo data base of nearly 600 photographs and learned through trial and error more ways to take photographs oflarge products, some much larger that a refrigerator. The working environment was a full functioning warehouse where the cabinets and cooling units were assembled by hand and shipped to customers around the world. The area in which I worked changed almost daily; I was constantly weaving power cords around objects, or squeezing strobe lights between cabinets to get appropriate light for picture taking. These surroundings may seem undesirable, but in the end actually made me a more resourceful photographer. During my internship I have also expanded my responsibilities to include creating Power Point presentations, using audio and video equipment to create virtual tours and voiceovers, as well as had the change to work with the web designer for the company's website. Through completing this internship I have gained a great deal of real world experience in the workplace.
