Are you in the LA area!?!?
Do you like photography?!?
Would you like to spend a day (or 4) on a shoot???
would you like to be an intern/assistant on a really fun and creative photo shoot?
Where: Orange County
When: October 9-12th...(today until Monday - message him ASAP!)
What: A catalog photo shoot for winter outer wear (snowboard clothing) companies...Forum, Four Square and Special Blend...
Who: One of my closest friends...and the most amazing photographer I've ever worked with...Ian Ruhter...when you work with Ian, you never know what he is going to come up with....I've been on set with him when there's been fire, snow, walls of ice...you never know what brilliance he has come up with.
Ian, is one of the most creative and incredibly talented photographers on Earth...anyone who works with him is honored to...and he has a loyal team of people that would practically pay him to work with him...
This is a chance to work with an amazing team...from watching the "art of lighting"...to the models/ athletes...to just learning from Ian and his awesome team..watching him work is really incredible...people just study his pictures trying to figure out how he created the shot...and now you can actually be a part!!
WHAT you have to do: contact Ian on Facebook- leave him a message (you don't have to be his friend to leave a message either...facebook is nice that way)...here the link:
IAN RUHTER ON FACEBOOK
check out his blog here too: (if you go back far enough, you'll see a picture or two of lil' ol' me!)

(recognize this picture....Ian photographed this, too!)
If you are in the LA area...you want to learn photography...this is it!?! (I'm just warning you....now...interning pays ZERO dollars....I worked for FREE on movies and shoots for a long time...but what you learn is priceless!)
Note to potential assistants/interns: Always ask what you can be doing, never just sit and start talking..always be ready to run and do something...save conversations for break times...you always want to be "on-call"...listening and watching...always be standing and ready for action!
Enjoy this awesome opportunity...Ian is one of my best friends...and I admire his work and respect his talent...some of his images have brought tears to my eyes...and not to mention my mom said one of the pictures he took of me "is the best picture of me!"...(the one below)
