Learning to Assist

It’s a little outside of what we teach here, and I only did it a handful of times, but for many photographers, assisting was the path to making images. Over at Behind the Shutter, Alissa Zimmerman gives a sense of what it was like when she started assisting for a wedding photographer.

It isn’t glamorous (my first assisting gig had me standing on a C-stand, leaning into the wind, acting as human ballast), but it’s a wonderful way to learn.
