Nathan is a pretty good assistant. He come along on some of my shoots that might be tricky and stands in when i need to test the light. He doesn’t LOVE doing it, but I think he likes it ok. I usually pay him in dinner and beer, and he likes seeing me in action. He’s also amazing with the kids, though sometimes it backfires. Yesterday he had this little girl SO entertained sliding the teddy bear down my reflector we couldn’t tear her away. I had to get all my photos of her watching the teddy bear doing his thing.
Anyhow, I am thankful that he’s so supportive and happy to be a part of what I do.
