Nicki (Evans) Simpson
I am a bit new to the assisting world. Coming from a photojournalism background, I am used to being a "one (wo)man band" per say. But I think that has made me a very versatile photographer with a great work ethic.
I took an assistant's "bootcamp" class from ASMP Houston a couple years ago. Since then, I have assisted on about 10 jobs...including manning 2-3 bodies with telephotos at the Super Bowl (in Houston), but haven't really established
myself as a regular assistant in the market due to a fairly steady flow of photography work on my own.
That being said, I would love to work more as an assistant. I enjoy being around the photographic world in any aspect. I don't feel that any job is below me. I work hard, show up on time (usually early) and learn quickly. I have a small SUV and can haul equipment, and I'm willing to travel.
