What do Photography Assistant services include?
Photography assistant services include tasks expected of an assistant which can make the work of a professional photographer easier. This service is recommended for commercial photographers, fashion photographers, wedding photographers, family photoshoots and event photographers.
The services offered by photography assistants include helping set up the location, preparing the props, equipment, models and products for the shoot and assisting the photographer during the shoot. Taskers hired for these services can also provide customer service, edit the photos and then distribute them to clients.
Setting up the shoot
Taskers hired as photography assistants can help set up the studio or location for the shoot. This can include getting the required permits, booking the venue, and hiring the models and makeup artists. Your assistant can get the needed props, arrange for the transportation of clients to and from the shoot if required, and set up the lighting, laptops for viewing and other equipment.
Assisting during shoot
Photography assistants can assist the principal photographer and carry out their instructions during the photoshoot. This can include offering advice on how the models should pose and position themselves, as well as how to get the best angle or lighting for the subject. Your photography assistant can add or remove props from the set; they can also recommend camera settings to produce the best shots. They usually assist in taking additional shots or back-up photos.
Customer service tasks
Photography assistants can offer various customer service tasks like booking and scheduling photoshoots or answering questions about the photographer and his services. They can manage payments to models, props providers and other suppliers. Taskers can also arrange for the meals of cast and crew, and make sure clients are comfortable if they decide to stop by the location. They can also assist in addressing the client’s concerns about the photos if any arise.
Editing and distributing photos
Some Taskers can do some of the photo editing and retouching before turning these over to your clients. Photography assistants can remove blemishes on the photos, fix the sharpness, apply digital filters, remove unwanted elements, or adjust the white balance among other improvements. Taskers can email the images to clients after editing and retouching. They can also burn them onto DVDs or other requested media and send them via courier.
