Calling all photo assistants!    

APA|Atlanta is hosting an event for you.

If you are an aspiring assistant, join us in the morning to learn basic photo assistant skills from Atlanta's top talent.

Photo assistants of all experience levels are then invited to the competition in the afternoon to contend for photo prizes and the team title of Atlanta's most badass assistants.

The basic photo assistant training will cover: set etiquette, grip overview, strobe lighting, and more.

Photo assistants will compete in teams of three, so grab your friends to compete for bragging rights and prizes in the competition. We're keeping some challenges under wraps, but here are a few: sandbag relay, pop-up reflector relay, and flying a 12x12 silk.

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Basic Photo Assistant Training
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Pizza & Salad Lunch
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM Photo Assistant Competition
