Photography Assisting 

Introduction

Hello! I have been assisting since 2015. I regularly ask for feedback from photographers I work with and some common praise and appreciation that I receive include:

  • I am proactive and anticipate the photographer’s need when we work together

  • I am professional in how I communicate and conduct myself with the photographer, clients, crew, and others on set; the photographer trusts that I will represent him/her well

  • I have a calming and positive energy

  • I am considerate and watch out for the crew and clients

  • I am good about capturing and sharing “behind the scenes” shots when possible and allowed
