As my year comes to an end and I start the last stage planning for three editorials this month, I find myself more and more in need of extra hands to handle the work. Normally I am quite happy to arrange things solo but this month its got a little more time consuming and the shuffling has become more tedious.
I really do enjoy the shoots, its generally really relaxed and quite casual when I am working, but the prep work and multi tasking is a killer.
Assuming I can find someone suitable for Sunday the 10th, I will take on a trainee to help with the running on the shoot and hopefully this will alleviate some of the burden. With 3 models and several changes planned for this submission it will be fun but a challenge.
If this works out then I will consider this a long term solution and take on more members to freelance on shoot as assistant.
