Top Photography Assistants related questions

What are additional benefits of hiring a Tasker to be a photographer’s assistant?

It’s more convenient to hire a Tasker to work as photographer’s assistants via our platform. You only have to make a detailed job posting about your needs, and qualified local Taskers will approach you. Be assured that your photography assistant has years of experience, so you don’t have to train them or deal with any unpleasant surprises during your shoot.

Do I need to provide my tools or equipment for my photography assistant’s service?

You aren’t obliged to provide any tools or equipment to Taskers hired as photography assistants. They usually bring their cameras and laptops with photo-editing software, if appointed to assist in taking photos and editing or retouching them. But if you’d like to have them take shots with one of your cameras, you can lend these to them. You can also provide them with a laptop or desktop with your preferred, updated photo-editing software if you wish.

How long does it take for a photography assistant to render their services?

The speed at which your photography assistant services vary from Tasker to Tasker, but they can accomplish their assigned tasks within a reasonable time. Taskers understand that some functions need to be done as soon as possible, and they will deliver as expected. For instance, they know that photo editing and retouching is possible within a day, and the standard photoshoot setup takes no more than a couple of hours.    

Can a Tasker also help me with my photography assistant services?

Yes, you can. You can hire them as part of your team, whether it be as a photography production assistant or fashion photographer assistant. You can also be a direct employer of these Taskers, whether you’re a wedding photographer looking for an assistant, fashion photographer, wildlife photographer or other pro photographers that need help in doing the many tasks to ensure a successful photoshoot.

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 the 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 & 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.
