Some gigs I quote without an assistant, but most shoots we quote with an assistant.
Why… its simple math. My rate is substantially higher than my assistants rate and it
simply is not good business sense for my clients to pay me to setup lighting, run wires, move
furniture, sweet talk kids, powder noses and corral errant dogs.
We recently did a shoot in half a day that would have taken a sole photographer a
whole days rate. http://www.fastforwardfrench.com/
Assistants quite simply save YOU money…
