A new segment to my photo blog - In recognition of all the brilliant photo assistants who work tirelessly behind the scenes to help make photographer's photo-shoots a success.
Whether it's helping with moving heavy equipment, setting up lights, last minute collections, coffee runs, managing file workflow, being a sound board, pre shoot prep, taking phone calls, on set tech support or standing in on set ups. On some jobs I would be lost without them.
There's a lot of 'standing in' on my shoots and consequently I have a lot of pictures of all the assistants I've worked with sitting in for the talent whilst we test shoot. No longer will these pictures be sat on my hard drives collecting data dust, oh no, I will show them here for all to see. I know the assistants will be over the moon with this.
To get our new segment underway here is the fantastic Francesca Jones standing in on an office scene we were shooting last week. Frankie is a very good photographer in her own right so do check out her work here.
