Assistant Open House - 2010 Casting Call

REPOSTING since many of you asked about this.

Hello everyone! Many of you have probably heard about my annual Assistant Open House and have already expressed interest in taking part. Believe it or not! It is that time of year again! Assistant Open House is an invitation only event where I meet the many talents and select 5-10 individuals who will be helping me with my 2010 weddings.

Who is this casting call for?
This is for people who are interested in the world of wedding photography and want to start doing what you love. If you have a wedding photography business today and already shooting 5+ weddings a year, this may not be for you. This is for people who are interested in getting to know the field and want to "feel-this-out". This is a great opportunity to see and learn what you have always wanted to do.

When can I start helping and learning?
It all depends, all wedding assisting takes place in 2010. If you are invited to the open house, and after we meet, I still have to decide who will work with me next year based on experience and interest. I don't necessarily look for the most technical people. I am interested in friendly, fun and willing to learn ones. Good smiles help :)

OK, now I am interested, how do I get invited to the open house?
Here is what you need to do, please follow instructions below else I will not be able to consider your submission:

**1. Write me a short email (I mean short!!) to tell me why wedding photography is for you. What makes you different compared to other photographers? Be genuine, be creative, be yourself. Please don't send me an email to tell me what you think I want to hear. I can tell! :)

**2. Include a link to your latest people pictures. It can be from a wedding or from a shoot you recently did. I am interested in your portrait skills, so please focus the picture selection to people only!

**3. I would like you to submit a creative (I mean this!!) photograph *900 pixels wide @ 72 dpi* with you and a sign that reads "Augie Chang 2010 Casting Call". I got this great idea from my Bludomain Photographer of the Year nomination, credit to them! Don't know what I mean? take a look at what I did for Blu. This should be very creative, fun and should show who you are. I will use this photo on my blog once I select the 2010 team.

**4. Contact information, cell and email address please.

**5. Please put "Open House 2010" in the subject line

**6. Email this to:

**7. Deadline for this submission is on Sunday, November 15, 2009 by 11:59pm PST (according to my clock)

Once the submission process ends, and if you are selected, you will receive an email from me with an invitation to this Assistant Open House by 11/29/2009. The event will be on a weeknight in December.

I would love to accommodate everyone, but due to the number of interested individuals, I won't be able to invite everyone. Please don't get mad at me if you are not selected. This is not personal. I just don't have the capacity to accommodate everyone.

Looking forward to receiving your submission!
