    i think i'll like to put this clear across is that my intention of starting this thread to have a network between us PAs, not a thread to find PAs or PAs looking to assist. if you wish to find a PA or look for a job as a PA, u may do so using PMs to PM the list of PAs.

    From my observation, wedding photographers here generally operate more simply, in that they use minimal equipment. No heavy studio strobes, reflectors, etc especially on actual day.

    The usually used definition in Singapore, though not technically correct or complete, is that a wedding "assistant" simply shoots with another camera as a partner rather than really help or learn from the main photographer himself.

    Thanks...
    to answer the above, most photographers i know will use their own freelance/full time PAs. u may try to advertise through clubsnap as i think there are also photogs who come and find.

    hope this helps and clarifies.

    Good that you can help to keep this thread within your intention and topic

    Perhaps if you want and looking at the way this thread is going, you may want to start a thread for PA with their contact in services offer, section. Just a thought

    hello PE,

    thanks for your reply! i think i'll leave it to the PAs discretion to start a thread of services offered there. or maybe the mods can probably sticky a thread for PAs available? i don't know. just a suggestion.

    if you don't mind, please help me remove those posts asking for PAs and jobs as PAs in the thread!

    thanks again!

    hi there,
    i'm just starting out as a PA and i was very fortunate to respond to the thread the studio put up and they hired me despite my not so tender age.

    i've looked through newspaper ads and saw that ppl are advertising also, but they need at least a yr's experience.

    thanks for sharing! it's never too old to start! i do know of one studio who particularly only hires men who are 28 and older for some reason or another.

    hi there! do come and join us for makan meetups if you'd be interested to find out more!

    anyway, interestingly, someone asked. ''i'm a girl, can't carry heavy stuffs. but i would want to be a PA.. how?"

    i think there's no 2 ways about this 'carrying heavy stuffs'. either u train to carry, or can't be PA. but i would like to hear more opinions as well.. that would benefit both parties i thought!
