Assistant Application

I’m excited that you are interested in working as my assistant! Here are some details:


I am based in Cottonwood Heights, Utah. Most of our shoots will be in one of the Cottonwood Canyons, downtown SLC, or in Park City.



  • Assisting with lighting (i.e.reflectors, off-camera flash, etc.)
  • Assisting with (read schlepping ) 10-15 pounds of photo gear
  • Watching for fly-away hairs, adjusting jewelry, showing bra straps, etc.
  • Providing occasional comic relief



  • Must be 16 years old or older.
  • Must have your own transportation.
  • Must be available evenings and weekends (including Sundays).
  • Must be perpetually on time. Even better, be early.
  • Must be flexible. The weather doesn’t always cooperate.
  • Must be respectful, kind, and professional.
  • Must be okay with being the quiet but oh-so-helpful assistant.
  • Must be good with trekking through fields, forests, and cities while carrying 10-15 pounds of gear.
  • Must sign a non-compete agreement.



I usually take 3-4 sessions a month. Each session is about 3-4 hours long, so it is typically 20-25 hours/month.
Pay is $10/hour
I try to give you as much notice as possible, but sometimes I have clients who require sessions that week, so notice can be short.


Fill this out to apply. Expect a phone call shortly.
