    I am not hiring assistants in the meantime. Maybe you can PM me your contacts and email so that I can arrange a portfolio viewing and Photoshop evaluation test for you.

    Aiyah... this is nothing compared to me when I was an assistant few years ago. I had to carry:
    1. A non-carbon fiber Gitzo tripod on the left shoulder on strap.
    2. A Tamrac shoulder bag with 2 Hasselblad bodies, 4 film backs and an assortment of lenses, including a 300mm f4.5, 2 Polaroid backs and films.
    3. A Tamrac haversack on my back with F5 and D1x bodies and an assortment of Nikon lenses, including a 300mm f2.8 and films.
    4. A Minolta Autometer hanging on my neck.
    5. 2 750W Elinchrom compacts with my right hand.
    6. 2 Light stands, 2 Autopoles, 2 soft boxes, a 6' Octobank softbox and a 48" 5-in-1 reflectors with my left hand.
    Fortunately, I am 6' 2" tall and weight 125 kg. Carrying all these equipment seemed easier each day.

    Life of an assistant in general.

    Not necessary. But to become an assistant will help you establish a network of clients early, in case you decided to branch out on your own.

    If you are purely for learning purposes, I suggest that you attend workshops instead.

    I will have to look at your portfolio to decide if you are worth the price you quoted.

    BTW, which McD's did you worked at? I used to work at North Bridge Road, Kea Building long, long, long time ago (early 1980s).
