The apprenticeship focuses not only on the knowledge an Assistant Photographer needs in order to be competent (outlined below) but on the skills and behaviours such as developing a strong work ethic, being adaptable, honest and able to plan, organise and communicate.
Being able to work efficiently with digital imaging software, identifying what needs to be emphasised in the images and taking images that achieve the viewpoint, composition and point of focus, including appropriate depth of field. Finally backing up digital images files whilst on assignment and recording metadata clearly and accurately are all key to success in the role.
The course is delivered through once monthly full day workshops plus expert coaching and high quality online resources. We deliver nationally.
All teaching is presently delivered remotely and there is an active programme of starts despite Covid-19.
