This intensive workshop is for those wishing to explore entering the photographic industry at an assistant level. By the end of the day, you will be armed with the base knowledge to grow as an assistant and will know what to expect.

A few of the topics we’ll cover:

  • Getting started, how to find assisting opportunities
  • Determining your goals and how to get the most out of assisting
  • Asking the right questions before assisting to set yourself up for success
  • Overview of agreements—we are not lawyers
  • Typical expectations from an assistant
  • What you should expect from the lead photographer
  • The do’s and don’ts while being an assistant
  • Group demonstrations and individual practice with various photographic equipment

Make sure you bring a willingness to have fun, join discussions, and learn as much as you wish. You’ll want to take a lot of notes, but we will also provide hand-outs for future reference.
