Backpacker Magazine – January 2014
Who doesn't want to combine their passion and paycheck? We helped six BACKPACKER readers score prime internships in the outdoor biz.
BACKPACKER: What was your first task?
Becca Skinner: I digitized slides and images from the early catalogs and re-keyworded the photo archives to make them easier to use. I worked with some of the most iconic photos in climbing history—like shots of Yvon Chouinard sorting gear in a Yosemite parking lot.
BP: Did you go on any photo shoots?
BS: I assisted staff photographer Tim Davis on a photo shoot at a wolf sanctuary in California. We hung out with the wolves and shot them up close. One even licked my face and touched noses with me. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
