The people behind the people behind the camera

A series of portraits of assistants working in three of the main photography studios in London: Sunbeam, Big Sky and The Worx Studios.

The studio assistant is probably the person at the lowest rank of the photography business, often working incredibly long hours for very little money, but it's very popular job between recent photography graduates as it offers an entry level position in an extremely competitive industry.

Many of this young hopefuls will give up on the photography dream along the way, deciding to change career path, but some of them will go into assisting directly photographers, eventually becoming successful photographers themselves.
