"Joanna assisted me on a corporate headshot photoshoot comprising of various locations and lighting requirements within the building. She was very easy to work with and provided good attention to detail. She was attentive and personable during the shoot and helped to keep the timings of the day on track. Quick to learn and adapt to new equipment and different lighting set-ups. Happy to recommend Joanna as a first assistant." Piers Cunliffe, Kinsmen Photography, January 2019.

Josh Redman

I have assisted over 30 photographers since going full time freelance in 2012. Various kit available to hire from me direct at competitive rates (calibrated monitor/computer/laptop/Ellinchrom/Canon 5DS/Canon lenses etc). Equally at home as an ideas-bouncer or silent butler type, usually I end up as a bit of both. I can do lighting, digi, BTS stills, the lunch run, and everything in between. If you need me to know about specific kit, just ask and I'll let you know if I've had experience with it before. If I can't personally help, I'll always try to pass you on to somebody that can.

Matthew Booth says: "Josh has worked with me for some time now. I use him as a reliable and highly adept assistant. He is an excellent photographer himself, producing high quality images with a creative flair. I would recommend him to anyone."

Matthew Beedle says: "I recently hired Josh whilst I was one armed for a few weeks after a cycling accident and did not regret it. He was knowledgeable, creative, punctual and willing to work on each project as if it was his own. I would highly recommend Josh for any assisting work at a range of levels. Thanks again."

Nicola Schafer says: "Josh did a great job assisting me on a photo shoot last year. He was prompt, helpful, and able to know what was required without needing to be asked. He had all the practical skills required from an assistant and he is also a highly skilled and extremely creative photographer. I recommend him highly and would hire him again."

Likewise with a digital workflow, I can provide a full digital kit package and make sure that all files from camera to computer are organised, graded and outputted to the requirements of the client, ready for retouch.
