This job is both administrative and hands on in the studio and requires high attention to detail-- you will be responsible for booking models and arranging rates, organizing the shoot calendar, making sure photos are delivered within a timely manner, communicating with production department to get samples made, managing and organizing of clothing samples and backdrops, assisting during photo shoots, and more. If you're familiar with the program Monday, we primarily work through that!
