Last minute shoot, today (Thu 22 July, 2021) for Sahar Millinery: https://www.saharmillinery.co.uk/ By me, Sina: https://5127.co.uk/ Need an assistant to help with lighting, etc. You don't need experience. It will require some physical work, as we'll be shooting in and around the studio which is in Leicester Square, and will be mobile. We start around 2pm, and will finish around 5pm. I have another shoot afterwards, less exciting than this one, but if you fancy both, they're yours for the taking.

Thank you for your help on such short notice!
