Must have great organizational skills, excellent time keeping and ability to meet deadlines. All equipment must be cleaned and maintained after each shoot and new equipment must be added to the insurance list  on a regular basis. Applicant must be able to adapt to changing situations and be able to help out wherever they are needed.
