About HCP / Get Involved / Internship


The Houston Center for Photography seeks creative individuals with an interest in photography and the visual arts for internship opportunities. Offered year round, internships at HCP provide a platform for undergraduate and graduate college students to gain practical, hands-on experience in our exhibitions, education, and development departments. HCP’s programming includes exhibitions, educational classes, workshops, outreach programs and initiatives, fellowships, publications, a digital darkroom, and a library.  Our hope is to match each intern with duties that fill their interest and learning goals. Internships are unpaid, but course credit can be arranged with the intern’s educational institution.
