Seriously, updating this thread is a pain in the ass. I wonder if anyone has ever been contacted through it for assisting work. Either way, I still keep it updated, but coming to Model Mayhem usually just makes me sad nowadays. If anyone wants a copy of the edit code of the list to start it in their name (so the links all work) and wants to keep it going, please let me know. **It will make you famous and revered throughout Model Mayhem and beyond!


This thread is for those wishing to assist photographers.

Compensation: Any, just has to be interesting/motivating enough for me to take a day off of work.

Qualifications and other Details: I've used a bunch of cameras, formats, held a Mamiya with a P30+ in one hand and a Jack/coke in the other while shooting at a friends studio (camera not mine, didn't drop it), Dropped a Speedo head which I won't do again. Can setup lights and some computer stuff, I know what looks good and crappy and am not afraid to let you know, and I've used both my Wacom and card reader to hold pizza. Did I mention I like to lift things and put them in different places?

I can do some retouching and digi tech stuff although I really wouldn't want it as a career.
