Know your crew

So, you get your first gig as a photo assistant and meet all these people: Photographers, Art Directors, Stylists, Stylist Assistants, Producers, Digital Techs, Models, Hair and Make-up, Caterers, Clients, and you are thinking, “Where do I fit in?” That’s what this meeting is all about.


We all know that the photo assistant is the photographer’s right-hand person and second pair of eyes on any photo shoot. But, let’s face it, there’s much more to it than that. Really, it’s the whole photo crew that contributes to a successful shoot. So, just where does the assistant fit in, amongst all the rest of the crew? What is expected of you by the photographer and each crew member? And how can you best tailor your skills and experience as an assistant to best help the overall production?


Whether you are a brand new, green assistant, or you’ve been around since the dawn of time, there is always something new to learn. We will have a diverse panel of Photo Assistants talking about what they do and how they do it.


We will have four panelists including Liz Otte, Studio Manager at Shelter Studios, Jonathan Chapman, Freelance Lifestyle Photographer, and Photo Assistants Eric Eul & Nate Ryan. They will talk about everything from how to get the the job, to what you need to know to help your photographer get the shot.


There will be FREE swag giveaways from our sponsors!
