Why photographers need business insurance, and assistants main-line coffee & Red Bull

by JamesNYCFebruary 24. 2013 03:47

Well over a year ago I worked on a men's fashion shoot late at night at a King Tut exhibit here in NYC. We loaded in to the museum at around 9:45 PM and shot until nearly 6:30 AM and then hauled all of our equipment out of the museum and back to the studio by 8:00 AM. During the course of the shoot everyone including the photographer started to slow down and lost energy. Bad things happen when the energy and the brain start to fade after midnight. Since it's been a year the pain of watching this has faded.

Photo Assisting Basics - Coiling Cords and Cables

by JamesNYCFebruary 12. 2013 02:36

A few years ago I posted a video about the proper way to coil cords to ensure their long life and more importantly ease in packing and storage. I thought that it was time to bring it back to the front of the play list since there seems to be a great many people that are missing this very simple skill.

Now before those people that work on film shoots chime in and tell me that their method of coiling cords and cables which includes a twisting motion during the coiling of the cables, it needs to be pointed out that THERE IS NO ONE RIGHT WAY OF DOING ANYTHING; there are just some methods that are better than others. And the method demonstrated here is the one that I and hundreds of my peers in the commercial photo industry have been using for more than 20+ years.

Below you'll see a selection of my extension cords and that are all 15 years old or more. They have always been coiled using my method so I know that it works.
