2011 marked a major paradigm shift for me in my photography goals. As such, I’m on a bit of a creative sabbatical with a fierce intent to pursue some avenues that I never had time for in the past.
Through the process, I’m discovering one missing element. I can’t do it by myself
and I am deeply in need of a lovely assistant!
In the past I’ve welcomed one-time assistants on several of my shoots, but that approach just isn’t going to work for the projects I have coming in the next few months. I need someone who will be consistent and be there for the long haul, since there will be a bit of training involved, deeper responsibility, and most of all, I’d love to share my vision with someone who shares in my excitement.
If this is peaking your interest, read on:
Assistant Responsibilities will include:
-Shooting… (video). No worries if you’re totally inexperienced here. I provide all equipment and training.
-Help with lighting (holding reflectors, diffusers, etc.)
-Stylist (another pair of eyes to catch minor adjustment details)
-Creative soundboard for all my ideas
-Minimum commitment of 2 months, hopefully more.
*This is a non-paid gig. But for someone searching for an outstanding blow your mind one on one education you’ll get far more than you bargained for.
-Must be fun. Light hearted and think I’m funny.
-Must be available for around 2 hours a week in Cache Valley. Shoots will typically take place on Friday mornings (9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. ISH) OR afternoons. (3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. ISH). If you have young children you must be confident you can find a consistent baby-sitter every week.
-An eye for composition and design. A brief portfolio submission is requested.
-A earnest quest for knowledge and a willingness to push boundaries of creative thinking.
-A deeply rooted desire to capture authenticity and real life.
-A gracious spirit and heart that is willing to serve and willing to share.
-Loves the idea of visionary work that can change the world and individuals
-Wants to make a difference and an impact in the work they do
-Is willing to contribute creatively in the pursuit of some wild and crazy dreams
Does this describe you? I hope to start as soon as Next week. Yesterday would have been even better.
UPDATE: Thank you for the overwhelming response. I have closed the application process so I can even begin to sort through it all. I’m truly humbled that so many would even want the opportunity to work together. Thank you.

She had the perfect plan… she would teach the family Collie, Sadie, Math! Years have passed. Much has changed. She no longer likes math. Or dogs. But she still LOVES to teach!
