Equipment & Set Management Unload and set up the cameras, tripods, lights, and other equipment the photographer will use for the session. Prepare the set according to the CD or DP requests and/or needs, including placing props, and adjusting light sources. Break down the set/studio and organize equipment to be ready for the next shoot.

Prop Sourcing & Management For shoots that require props, the media assistant will gather, prep, and organize those props from the prop room or source additional props. They will also be required to return all props to the prop room in an organized fashion.

Assist During Photo Shoots During the photo session, the media assistant follows the CD’s or DP’s instructions. This can require adding or removing props from the set, or changing settings on the camera and lights. The assistant may also take some shots themselves.

Calendar & Scheduling The media assistant will also keep track of our shoot calendar and scheduling to deal with any conflicts. They will also assist in preparing and distributing shot lists, wardrobe requirements, and general talent communications leading up shoot dates.

Edit Photos Using image editing software, the media assistant corrects blemishes in photos, including cropping photos and adjusting contrast, tone, or lighting. They also remove unwanted objects in the scene, apply digital filters, make color enhancements, and improve overall image quality.

File Management & Photo Distributing Part of a media assistant’s job involves making sure all photos/videos are filed and backed up correctly as well as distributing edited photos to the DFW team through our online photo gallery service.

Photo Sourcing The media assistant will also source photos for anyone within the DFW organization. This may include sourcing for design or marketing projects, AMOT, partner needs, or social media.
