Ready to Assist?

Working as an Photographer's Assistant or as an Assistant Photographer is a critical step toward building your skill-set and toward building your understanding of what is expected of you on a shoot. Recently, I read a blog entitled, "So You Think You Want to be a Photo Assistant?" This article was a great been-there-done-that approach to successfully finding work as an assistant. The truth is, you can ask any great photographer for advice regarding working as an assistant, and you will get and ear-full. Of course, none of this great advise is worth anything unless you put it into practice!

Below is a link to the ASMP Assistants list, in case you are ready to throw-your-hat-in-the-ring.

The bottom line? If you want to work in this industry, working as an assistant is vital to establishing experience and credibility.
