For Photographers

Tracy has a background in education and a heart for teaching – it is one of the many reasons that Lightly Photography is a team. She has a K-12 certification in Art and taught high school for 5 years while building the business.  We work with interns and look for teaching opportunities in the photography and wedding community.


If you are interested in interning with Tracy Autem & Lightly Photography, Inc. please contact us with your resume and a link to your portfolio. Only 1 intern is accepted per semester and a 3 month minimum commitment and 8 hours per week is required. Interns are expected to share their time between office and live shoots from weddings to portrait sessions so they can gain the most from the experience. It is not necessary for an intern to be in college or have attended college but we are able to work with your university if credit is needed.

One on One Training:

If you are a photographer looking to hone your skills behind the camera, in front of the computer editing or on the business end a One on One may be for you. We offer 2 day intensives and 2 hour crash sessions. One on One’s are only available at select times due to our studio’s busy schedule.

2 day trainings are completely tailored to your needs and can include hands on shooting with models or a dive into your business operations. 2 days starting at 9 am and going until late with 3 follow up phone calls to help you implement any changes in your business are included as well as food, snacks and as much coffee as needed during our time together. The cost is $2000.

Crash sessions usually focus on one specific area of need. Our most requested topic is training on associate photographer programs. 2 hours in length at our studio is $400.
