To get my job, I literally sent emails and called local photographers to see if they needed anyone. BUT I do have an Associate’s degree in Photography, and my boss also went to my college (like 1o years ago, lol).


I still don’t consider myself a “professional” as I am an assistant photographer. However, photographers value time and if you want someone’s opinion, I would suggest a trade of some sort. Offer to clean their car, cut their lawn etc to reveiew a portfolio or something. That may sound weird to you, but I honestly wouldn’t spend an hour plus looking at and critiquing a portfolio unless I was paid and/or a teacher.

Good luck!
