In the need for a photo assistant?

Do you need an experienced Photo assistant and Digital-Operator in Hamburg or elsewhere in Germany (or even around the world)?

Great you just found one: My name is Jan and I’m 39.

I currently reside in the lovely Hamburg (Germany), but I’ve seen many places in the world and I love to travel.

Thats why my english is pretty much rock solid and the reason I feel comfortable in all sorts of environments.

I’ve been involved in over 500 different productions from just simply holding a scrim to multi day productions with several concurrent sets.

Some of the highlights: indoor under water shoot, cgi involved projects and international shoots.

Places I’ve worked include New Zealand, Scotland, Los Angeles, Praque, Zurich, and many more.

I’ve assisted at various types of photo shoots: Fashion, Editorial, Cars, Interior, Architecture, People, Food, Still life.

So no worries whether it is an indoor studio or outdoor on location shoot, I’m happy to help.
