Photography Assistant

May 2018 - August 2018 Chicago, IL
“I loved seeing the process of a working fine art photographer, and getting to ask questions about the business side of the industry. We did a lot of work on set, and it was fascinating to see her explain her vision for each image. She is an incredibly kind person, and is willing to answer any questions I had about any part of the photographic world including commercial and event photography.”
