Episode 002 - The Ready Steady Pro Photography Podcast: Second Shooting

Business, Second ShootingMichael RammellComment

Another episode from way back when (September 2013!). Although still rough and a little raw, we released our discussion for episode 2 on the ever-hot topic of second shooting and second shooters. We discussed the world of Second Shooting including how to get more Second Shooting Gigs, setting boundaries with the principle shooter, the pressure involved in being a second shooter, whether or not second shooters should be able to use images in their own portfolio, and the massive subject that is should second shooters be paid?

As well as discussing all things second shooting each guest was tasked to come up with something to give to you this evening, What we’re calling Little Gems. These can be found below.

I welcomed back some good friends and new voices to the show for this discussion.

Topics Discussed

Second Shooting & Photographer Assistants.

Today’s Little Gems

  • Tracey’s Little Gem for today was a thought-provoking & motivational quote:“Life is like a Camera. Focus on what’s Important, Capture the Good Times, Develop from the Negatives. Take Another Shot”
  • Lel has left us with a wedding blog to seek out and take inspiration from. Go have a look at ShowMeThePretty.co.uk/
