I posted this last summer with it netting great interest but people's availability can change at any give time, so I am in need to find two more people to be my "Photographer's Assistant" - my goal now is to have one main and two backups as travel distances can be an issue. I need my MAIN assistant to be located either in Calgary or not too far outside of the city.
My assistant will come along with me just about everywhere. 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝘀 𝗮 𝗳𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰 𝗼𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗮𝗻𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗮 𝗽𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗼𝘄𝗶𝗻𝗴:
2) Photography or videography (or even better both!)
The number one question that I received when I posted this ad the first time was "I am a beginner and don't know much about photography, can I still apply?" The answer is yes you absolutely can. For me, attitude is everything, skills (for the most part) can be taught but it all comes down to the individual as a person, fit and the level of determination that they have to achieving their goals.
Experience handling and working with horses is a must, experience with studs is an asset. This is the ONLY reason why I haven't put anymore time and effort into finding individuals right from colleges. I've met some stellar individuals right from college who would make great assistants but I need that experience with horses.
IMPORTANT: Every image that sits in my portfolio will ALWAYS come from my cameras and captured with my vision, so my assistants will not be working as a second shooter.

I look for someone who is in this for the RIGHT reasons. If you have a passion for the two reasons as I indicated above, the big question to ask yourself would be, do you see this as mentor ship opportunity and not just a pay cheque?
Communication is a two way street and I am a believer that it's everything. I look for someone who has a strong work-ethic and sees this as an on-going journey, full of thrilling and valuable learning experiences. Working for me will not only be super exciting but very rewarding because I only want individuals who enjoy the experience that I provide.
