Sony Artisan Tony Gale at PhotoPlus 2017

We all think we know the answers to becoming the next great photographer. Maybe we have the most followers or just think we can easily get assignments. Of course that can happen but the odds are not very high. PDN, APA and Sony have compiled a group of professional assistants, including Sony Artisan Tony Gale, that want to share why they assist, what the benefits are, the challenges and how to work through them, plus how to get assisting jobs and how assisting can lead to your own assignments.
