Register to be a Freelance Assistant Photographer /Videographer

Nancy L. Ford Photography, in conjunction with other area photographers & videographers, created a database of area freelance photographer assistants, second shooters, camera assistants, assistant directors, etc. This database will not be published publicly, but will only be available to photographers who sign up for the service.  Many photographers have their regulars they work with, but sometimes find themselves in a pinch and need to hire an additional assistant.

All levels of experience are welcomed to register, from beginner to experienced. Your rate of pay will be determined by the individual who hires you. Any freelance jobs you acquire from this database is a contract solely between you and the photographer who hires you. The moderator of this list has the right to refuse anyone access to the list database and also has the right to remove anyone from the database without any explanation or reason.

If you are a photographer/videographer that wants to have access to the database, email Nancy at Photos@NLFord.com.
