If you like taking pictures and want to improve your knowledge of studio equipment and photo sales jargon, you'll definitely get that experience here. But be wary of the holiday season; working from 8am ~ 8pm every weekend in late November and early-mid December will make you lose your mind, especially if you're already in school during the week. Managers vary depending on location so it's pure luck whether you get an amazing, understanding manager or a nagging, scolding manager. The work environment is crazy with 15 minutes in between each available appointment on the busiest days and only 10 minutes available in the camera room. You have to be creative with your photos and take the required poses and zoom-ins in such a short amount of time. I decided not to continue because, even though taking pictures is my strongest passion and what I want my primary job to be, working there slowly made me unwilling and nervous to take pictures.
