Calling all photo assistants! APA|Atlanta is hosting an event for you. If you are an aspiring assistant, come learn basic photo assistant skills from Atlanta’s top talent in the morning. Photo assistants of all experience levels are invited to the competition in the afternoon to contend for photo prizes and the team title of Atlanta’s most badass assistants. Wind down at the wrap party with ice cold beer provided courtesy of Wild Heaven.
The basic photo assistant training will cover: set etiquette, grip overview, strobe lighting, and more.
Photo assistants will compete in teams of three, so grab your friends to compete for bragging rights and prizes in the competition. We’re keeping some challenges under wraps, but here are a few: sandbag relay, pop-up reflector relay, and flying a 12×12 silk.
