From the Assistant: 20 years experience with a wide range of photographic styles and genres, architectural, landscape, fashion, industrial/scientific, documentary/photojournalism, still-lifes, etc. I'm computer-savvy, reliable, smart and fast. I'll help solve problems rather than becoming a problem! I don't mind grunt work as long as I'm learning something. I understand that working as an assistant is an exchange, my energy and labor in exchange for the opportunity to learn from a pro. I always give 110%. Resume and portfolio available on request.

As of 2/21/01: I now have experience with these specific cameras, Pentax 67II, Mamiya RZ67II, Hassleblad, Sinar 4X5

As of 8/7/02: I am especially interested in assisting architectural photographers.
