It's a very crucial position as a photographer's assistant and not just anyone can do it. I had the chance this summer to intern with a reputable photographer from Chicago and during some of her bigger shoots I get to see the pros at work. I have learned to stay as comfortable as possible, well dresses and handy. These are some of my essentials when I'm on set helping make some shoots happen! I picked some of my favorite brands to share with you guys!
Trust me, your hair will get messy and you will have to step outside multiple times whether it's to grab more equipment from the van or do a coffee run. A beanie helps keep your hair in place and also cozy. You also want to be prepared for any kind of weather whether the shoot is outside or inside a space where they like to keep it Antarctica cold. Brr.
The It's very useful to have a watch handy to keep track of the schedule on the photographer's call sheet. You can really score bonus points by being able to spot time before everyone else had the time to locate their phones. It also makes you look prim and polished. I prefer my metal wear to be silver but I added some gold options as well!
