Meet Our Fall 2017 Interns, Claire & Sharon

For nearly 10 years, we have been committed to providing opportunities for the next generation to get plugged into the Fort Wayne artist community.  We are proud to offer internships to Fort Wayne high school seniors in the areas of photography, graphic design, social media marketing, videography, set design, and more.

This fall, we have two amazing senior women — Claire and Sharon.

Claire Hegge is a senior at Concordia Lutheran High School and she LOVES photography!  Claire is highly motivated to pursue her art and is mad skilled at conceptual photography.

“I’m not exactly sure where the interest began, I just use to play around with a little pink digital camera that was gifted to me around the age of 12. When I quite literally used that camera to its death, I was then upgraded to my very first Nikon. It was the best gift I’ve ever received. I really enjoy shooting portraits in general and my main passion is conceptual portrait photography. My biggest inspiration is Kirsty Mitchell, and her amazing series Wonderland. My biggest dream is to be able to sell and display my art work across the country and maybe even the world. I would love to create a book full of my work and with things such as behind the scenes as well, similar to Kirsty’s Wonderland book. I’m beyond thrilled to be working with Shadowlands this semester! I hope to learn and grow so much as a photographer and person.”

Sharon Kim is a senior from Blackhawk Christian. She is interested in photography itself as well as editing and marketing. This is her first internship experience and she’s eager to learn more about her dream job and to experience what it’s like.

“I am the daughter of two missionaries, Edward and Hia Kim. I was born in Los Angeles, CA. When I was about two years old, I moved to Fort Wayne, IN. This when I learned my first two languages, Korean and English. Two years later, my father packed everything up and we all moved to Nez Ziona, a little bit north of Tel Aviv, Israel, and so by the time I turned five years old, I had fluently learned three languages. When I was little, my mom loved taking pictures of the pretty, exotic flowers they had in Israel. I was fascinated with the old little point and shoot camera that she had owned at that time. And living in Israel, a poor yet rich cultured country, I guess ever since then, I’ve been wanting to become a photographer who can bring help to those people’s poor, yet rich lives. But at the end of my third grade year, my family had gotten kicked out of Israel because of governmental issues, so we moved to Canada, where we’ve lived for two years, then afterwards we moved back to Fort Wayne, IN, where we have lived ever since.”

If you (or a #ClassOf2018 high school junior that you know) is interested in interning with Shadowlands Photography in the fall of 2017, please complete our online application at

P.S.  We only hire interns who wear glasses.

Introducing our Spring 2015 Intern: Samantha Berning

We are so excited to introduce our Spring 2015 High School Intern Samantha Berning.  Beauty, brains, talent & grace — this girl has it all.  Samantha is a senior at Concordia Lutheran High School.

She is energetic and health-conscious — school, soccer, gymnastics, and tennis keep her quite busy, but she is most excited about her Shadowlands Photography Internship class this semester.  Sam is very excited to learn about lighting and color within the photography world but as a future entrepreneur, she is also interested in learning about how to manage and operate a small business.  Next year she plans to study Cosmetology and Esthiology at Aveda Fredric’s Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana.  One day she hopes to start her own salon.

“My Shadowlands Photography Internship experience will help me so much now and in the future,” accounts Sam, explaining her vision for her internship.  “I can’t wait to get started and learn more and more each day!”

Our Shadowlands Photography High School Internship Program offers a variety of positions throughout the year, with different opportunities during the spring and fall semesters — as well as summer.  We are committed to training and raising up tomorrow’s creatives, entrepreneurs and business leaders so we have developed an active internship program for Fort Wayne high school students.

Samantha’s internship involves a wide scope of activities and will provide her valuable experience in the areas of Photography, Branding, Videography, Social Media Marketing, Customer Relations, Product Research & Development, Graphic Design, Packaging, and more.
