Fantastic advice! I have learnt a lot from working as an assistant! Even though it was a very, very long day which included running km's over town to find a replacement tripod, taking drinks and getting batterys for the photographer the valuable experience I took away from that shoot I will keep for life and has already aided myself and my photography!

That is a great tip! Entrusting with a small task so that we can be entrusted with a big task!

Thanks for laying out the core foundations on how one should start their photography career/business.

I would have loved to hear your story on how you got started and how you got to where you are today.
