While the world works to heal itself and take on this tragedy headfirst, we want to make sure we are supporting those who always support us. To do so, we are asking you to join us in Art for Assistants, a campaign to turn paper and ink into financial support for photography assistants.
We are selling a limited edition of 100, 11"x14" prints from Jason Lindsey on Epson metallic luster, archival paper. Prints are selling for $100 each, but of course, donations of any size are welcomed.
One hundred percent of proceeds from the sale of these photography prints will go to cover the living expenses of those dedicated sidekicks, who no longer have the opportunity to work.
With Epson’s partnership, Art for Assistants will mobilize the world’s greatest image-makers to sell limited edition prints, in order to raise money for all the assistants heavily impacted by the lack of work.
We encourage you to share this campaign with your audience and greatly appreciate any donations you’re able to make during such a challenging time.

I grew up surrounded by people best described as “salt of the earth.” As a kid in that kind of environment, you learn pretty quickly to be creative and resourceful. Simply put, I will do whatever it takes to get the shot, because I do not know another way. Authenticity is part of who I am at the core. I consider myself a story-teller and use my experience to create honest stories documenting real moments and true emotions. I love shooting in water up to my neck, swimming with sharks, and laying in the mud; but I also clean up pretty nice when I'm shooting in homes and offices! I'm up for anything with an amazing team of people working by my side. There is no better way to live! I am honored to have been selected by Archive Magazine as one of the 200 Best Ad Photographers worldwide for 2018/2019 and 2020/2021.
