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. Equally at home as an ideas-bouncer or silent butler type, usually I end up as a bit of both. I assist on a wide range of shoots, so I have some transferrable skills. My knowledge of kit is fairly broad, so just get in touch and I'll tell you straight up if I know the technical side of what you need me to do. I can do digi, lighting, BTS stills, buy lunch, tie your shoelaces, troubleshoot your dodgy monoblock, keep an eye on focus, give you some space when you're trying to concentrate, jump in if you're losing your head, and I'm a photographer in my own right (I consider assisting and being a photographer as two very separate lives though). 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." PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHY Clients include: Adidas; Aram Gallery; British Museum; Canary Wharf; Compare The Market; Christie's; David Roberts Art Foundation; Estonian Embassy; GQ Magazine; Julius Baer (Swiss Bank); Sky TV; Studio Moross; Virgin; WIRED Magazine.

Denise Maxwell

Hi all, if you are reading this you may be interested in me assisting you on a shoot, which is great! The first thing I should mention is that I am a full time photographer in my own right (www.lensi.co.uk) so you may be asking why I would assist another photographer on a shoot? Well, why not? I have colleagues that assist me often and it suits me to do the same for others during the times I do not have my own shoots or I am not teaching. I come with a range of experience in setting up lighting, Lightroom, Photoshop, InDesign, photography, being a digital assistant and so on. I have been full time since 2011 and part time for a few years before that, before giving my full time job up; as such I also have a range of equipment from lenses, boom arms, bodies, portable lighting, too much to mention here that can also be hired in addition to me assisting on shoot, where I will arrive with energy, enthusiasm and knowledge! Feel free to call, email, insta, facebook and all those other ways we now communicate if you would like to speak to me about your project.
