The job will essentially consist of becoming my right hand person. Assisting me on shoots, helping with the admin (marketing/sales, client liaison, data input, etc.), and editing photos on Photoshop & Lightroom - I will help you learn your way around Photoshop and Lightroom as well as I do. Dont worry if you have no previous experience with Photoshop and Lightroom, we can take it slow and build your skills up over the 6 months. Essentially, my intention is for us to get the business up to a place where I can take you on full time, on a proper salary, after the 6 months is up if you so choose to stay working with me.

The office space address we will be working out of is: Collective Camden, 5-7 Buck Street, NW1 8NJ. Its a great space to be in, lots of fun things going on all the time, loads of creatives all under one roof. However, we will be travelling to different locations on shoot days. I will give you as much notice to these location addresses as I can. After a short amount of time, Im sure you will be booking in our shoots directly with the clients, so you will know the addresss as soon as I do, as we will be working so closely together. We can discuss the best options for you to travel to and from the shoots as and when the shoots come in. It could be jumping in the car with me or making your own way.

I am open to being flexible with work hours and days, as long as they equate to 25hrs per week. For example, we could do 5hrs per day 5 days a week or 8hrs per day 3/3.2 days a week. And these can vary week to week, we can discuss days and hours for the week the week or two before.

SKILLS NEEDED

Ideally some experience with Adobe Photoshop.

Good computer skills - Gmail, Excel, Word, etc.

Good time management.

Patience - Sometimes shoots can be stressful, although my general attitude is to keep them as fun as possible, we are there to provide a professional service and we must be accommodating and polite to the client. Always.

A positive mindset and ability to think outside of the box - A lot of this job is to overcome challenging situations and keep cool while doing so.

ADDITIONAL EMPLOYABILITY SUPPORT

I will explain the importance of time management. If you are consistently late, your employee will not keep you on for very long. It is important to be punctual as it is respect for other peoples time. I would teach them everything I know about good time management and share with them tricks I have learnt in my journey so far.

I would let them shadow me and observe how I conduct my business, allowing for any questions they may have and explain my reasons behind my methods to the best of my ability. We would be working very closely together and with great patience I will teach them everything I know about how to lease with clients and in the correct manner and etiquette.

I would bring them along to my photoshoots to assist, when I was young I assisted for many years and this really helped me learn hands on a lot about photography shoots. I would train them up on Photoshop and Light room, Excel, Word and all the other programs I use to conduct my business.

After working with me for 6 months the young person will have a plethora of new skills to add to their CV if they did not wish to contuse working with me at the end of the 6 months. I would be taking them under my wing and teaching them everything I know about how to run a successful photography business.
