Producer (Photography)

A producer acts as the backbone of any photographic shoot, organising, scheduling and taking control of all aspects of pre-production. Responsible for ensuring a shoot goes as smoothly as possible, they possess fortune-teller-like abilities, foreseeing, and finding ways to solve potential problems that could arise while on set. They will book flights, write estimates and liaise with casting agencies if needed. A clear communicator with excellent people and leadership skills, they must be confident in delegating roles in order to keep a production on schedule and on budget.

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
