Attention future photographers! Ever wonder what it takes to become a photo assistant, and eventually transition to shooting? And what about internships? No matter where you are in your career -- whether you’re a working assistant, or an ambitious student — this is the ASMP meeting for you.

Working assistants, veterans, and photographers — please come share your experiences, joys, obstacles overcome, and discuss current challenges!

Join us in the MCTC photo department for an evening of stories, networking, and conversation. Photographer (and ASMP Board Member) David Bowman will moderate a panel discussion between students, assistants, and photographers to answer your questions about this competitive industry.

Topics will include:
- How to become a photo assistant. What do you need to know?
- Tips on transitioning from assistant to shooter: making the leap.
- Not for everyone: Other avenues to success within the industry.
- The pros and cons of internships, and what to avoid (for students and professionals)

Working photographers will be available during the social hour to look at your portfolio and give valuable feedback.
