Personal Experience : I started my career shooting still life / Product photography.  This was fun but I found I wanted to learn more. Soon after I joined a photographers cooperative, the Wonderful Machine where I learned about editorial portrait photography, event photography and studio lighting. I’ve been assisting ever since. I enjoy assisting and helping on shoots as much as possible. Some of my strengths are production, lighting and working as a digital tech . If your coming to town I would be happy to be your Philadelphia Photo Assistant.
