Photographer's assistant for a day (or two)

{Earlier today our first shipment of belongings was packed up and sent on the way to America!}

A few weeks ago, a local photographer posted on his Facebook page looking for a second assistant for a two day shoot.  I met all the requirements and jumped at the opportunity to take a break from PCS planning try something new.  My responsibilities were minimal but I helped the day go much smoother than it would have with just one assistant.  During some of my down time I took the opportunity to see how he interacted with the client and did what was necessary to nail the shots he needed.  I learned a lot and got to experience some things that were new to me, including DRIVING through Shibuya Crossing, one of the busiest intersections in the world!

I also had fun documenting the two days with my iPhone.

I can now officially add "photographer's assistant" to my resume!
