Nick Rapaz! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to help photograph the First Lady, Annie Leibovitz, or world leaders at the UN? Nick gives us a peek into all of those situations from his time as a full-time assistant working with Platon, as well as life as a freelance assistant.  He also shares about one of the things people don’t think about often when it comes to photographing busy people – the choreography of the shoot.  It’s a very interesting look into setting up for what could be a timeless and iconic portrait of someone in a matter of seconds.

Some of you may recognize Nick from the Light Shaping Tools, Part 2 Kelby Online Training class with Joe McNally.  This was the first time I (Brad) met Nick, and I have to tell you that he is one crazy guy, which is why he got along with Joe and I so well :)

Anyway, make sure you stop by tomorrow and check out Nick’s post!
