Tenerife is the most extraordinary island; it has breathtaking nature, festive culture and a variety of people and places. Where better to get hands on experience than on a sunny island with everything you could possibly want to capture through a lens?

We are particularly interested in giving a voice and platform to people, places and environments that are often overlooked. If you are passionate about filmmaking and photography and love to explore new cultures and environments, then this is the internship for you.
 
Interns will support the work of the Atlantic Whale & Dolphin Foundation (AWdF) and Fair Earth Foundation:

  1. Training the volunteers working on the whale watching boats in the use of DSLR cameras.
  2. Developing short promotional videos for local ecotourism providers.
  3. Creating short CV videos for all volunteers passing through the AWdF.
 
They will be expected to design their own project during their stay on the island with the help of our creative team!
