Organic Headshots needs an Intern.

March 18, 2011 Published by . Leave your thoughts

This week I spent several days on-site at clients’ offices taking photos of their staff. After 41 headshots in 3 days came out looking spectacular, I was absolutely beat and even a little sore. I came to two conclusions this morning:

1. I’m slightly out of shape and need to build my weak little muscles up a bit.
2. I need an assistant.
