Wedding photographers and portrait photographers frequently need to hire individuals with various levels of experience in assisting and lighting. Sometimes the job is as simple as holding a reflector of diffuser in the right spot, and sometimes it’s as complex as setting up and coordinating a dozen lights on multiple channels for a wedding reception room, or setting up live view tethering during an editorial shoot.
Assistants with a solid track record of work with multiple photographers may find that they are invited to Second or to bid for other jobs with established photographers. Assisting is a key method for learning on the job and for gaining more experience and is a specialty area of expertise. These are not “shooting” positions. Individuals listed here may not have photography experience, skills or businesses.
This listing is intended as a resource not only for Kat Forder Photography, but also for local area retail photographers in need of assistants. If you are interested in working as a lighting or equipment assistant for the 2015 wedding and retail photography season, please submit your information here.
