Photography is a rapidly growing industry. In order to land a job—much less an interview—your photographer assistant resume really needs to stand out.

A portfolio can speak for itself. But your resume needs to focus on your industry skills and experience.

Here’s what a recruiter is looking for in a Photographer Assistant resume

  • Appropriate resume sections: Your resume should include a header, summary, experience, skills, and education section.
  • Your specialty area: What kind of photography do you specialize in? A wedding photographer assistant is way different than a studio photographer assistant.
  • What your previous roles entailed: Did you help scout locations? Manage sets? Schedule events and meetings? How did you assist with lighting and accessories? What kind of editing responsibilities did you have?
  • Industry-specific software knowledge: What is your skill level with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop?
  • Familiarity with photography techniques: Do you understand how different lenses work? Do you know what kind of lighting to use when? Do you know which shutter speed to use?

PRO TIPAlways include a clickable link to your portfolio in the heading of your profile. Recruiters want to see your work, not just read about your experience. It’s arguably more important than your resume or length of work experience. After all, a picture speaks a thousand words.
