How do I become recommended by

Any one that has this designation next to there name has been recommended by a respected industry professional and or by one of the founding members of this site. The assistants that are currently recommended by us have a level of knowledge and experience that is equal to or surpasses that of most commercial photographers these days. The assistant should be extremely aware and be able to handle all aspects of a photo shoot including pre & post production.

As an example; should the need ever arise, any one of the assistants recommended by the site could in an emergency situation take over shooting for a photographer and have the rest of the job continue to look like the original photographer had shot it.

"How do I know if I can be recommended?"
"You should be able to produce and shoot the job if the photographer drops dead."
This my seem a bit extreme of an example; but in reality this type of assistant is what we all need to strive for.

Photographers, please feel free to recommend an assistant to us via E-Mail.
