I am looking for a photography assistant to help me during high school senior sessions during the 2022 year.
The primary duties will be during photo sessions, mostly female high school seniors, where I’ll need someone to help me carry gear, assist with lighting equipment and shoot video.
Assistants will also help with content creation for marketing projects that will include shooting behind the scenes photos and video during photo shoot sessions.
This is a great opportunity for a student interested in photography to gain experience working on real photo shoots. Throughout the year, I will share tips and knowledge and help you learn and grow as a photographer/videographer/entrepreneur.
Duties & Responsibilities
√ Help carry gear during the session.
√ Assist with setting up and managing lighting equipment and modifiers.
√ Be an extra set of eyes during shoot – help me look out for stray hairs, wrinkled clothes, etc.
√ Shoot 2-3 second video clips using dslr/mirrorless camera and gimbal.
√ Assist with marketing content creation including shooting behind the scenes photos and video during photoshoots.
Schedule will vary widely depending on the number of sessions booked during the year. Most sessions are during the months of June – August. Once the summer season gets going in June, assistants will work approximately 4-8 hours per week. There might be some weeks where we have no sessions due to planned vacations or holidays.
I do marketing shoots at the end of March & beginning of April that are all day events – 8am to 8pm. I also have a handful of sessions throughout the rest of the months not listed above.
Timing of shoots will vary depending on bookings. Most photo sessions take place in the afternoons between 3pm and sunset. Occasionally there will be an early morning session starting around 9/10am. Each session will be between 2-3 hours of work. It is very rare that there is a weekend shoot but it might happen if weather needs us to reschedule.
√ Assistant will be on a 90 day trial. Each 30 days, I’ll have a review with the assistant to discuss the job, responsibilities, and performance.
√ Copyright of Images and videos will be solely owned by Stacy Kennedy Photography. Images can not be used by assistants in any form such as, but not limited to, websites, products, or portfolios.
√ Assistant must sign a 2 year non-compete agreement.
