looking for people having the same vocation as mentioned above...hope to establish some kind of network to exchange ideas, ideals, job opportunities and so on. can pm or post replies here, as long can keep in touch. hear from you soon!
the papers are a good source for job openings! :bsmilie: as you go along, you *might* get other jobs through word of mouth from friends and colleagues. when you are freelancing especially, it's a lot of hard work finding the next job :sweat:
From time to time i need assistants for studio work. It could be commercial, editorial, bridal or even test.
I also do bridal studio and outdoor. Esp for the outdoor part i hope to find someone whom i can work with and good at road navigation (very impt cos i am very bad with directions hahaha).
Please do drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and i will give you a call whenever i need assistants. Sometimes it is paid sometimes if for test, then you will have to sacrifice pay for learning more.
don't know where to start to give you advice, but i can safely say, assisting is *ALOT* of hard work. be prepared!
it doesn't matter who you work for, or how "good" or "bad" the photographer is....keep an open mind and treat everything, good and bad, as lessons you can learn from. that way, life would be more meaningful as an assistant sometimes, you just feel like sh*t haha!
will be good if you can get your own jobs, shooting weddings or PR events.... this way, you can build up your own portfolio, learn how to interact with your own clients, and earn cash, of course. some studios don't shoot such events, so they sub the jobs out.
one more thing, but just as important, give yourself credit and don't accept jobs which you think is seriously underpaid for your standards.
