There is no better way to learn than to be an assistant or a second photographer for an established photographer in your area. Whether you get paid or you are assisting for the experience, you will gain valuable insight into working with a client and develop essential skills that will improve your photography as you build your own style and brand. But there are many things you need to know before you approach an established photographer and ask for their trust and even more, you need to know once they have invited you to work with them on a job. Join Bob and Dawn Davis and Jared Platt as they host a panel discussion with their surprise guests and discuss everything you need to know about working with well-established photographers as a second shooter or as an assistant. Learn how to approach photographers you admire, learn the rules of the road, the dos and don’ts on the job, and most importantly, how to provide value to their brand and how to get the most out of your experience as a seconds photographer or assistant. Anyone who wants to shoot with an established photographer or already does needs to attend this panel discussion. This class will help you get in the door and ensure that you keep getting invited back! This class is the springboard you need. Surprise Guests: Bob, Dawn, and Jared have invited a few of the best wedding and portrait photographers in the industry to join them in a panel discussion. Each of them established a valuable photography brand and are eager to help you understand how to approach photographers just like them, how to get the first job, how to act on the job, how to add value to the brand you are working for and how to get value beyond your paycheck for that job.
