Join the Jason Lanier Team!
There are many different ways to work with Jason Lanier and his team! Jason feels very blessed to be in the position he's in and enjoys providing opportunities for others in the industry to grow and learn. Jason has created a variety of different options for people with a positive attitude who are interested in working hard and working with an award winning, world traveling photographer and very active Youtuber. Below are the options available. We hope to hear from you soon!
Jason Lanier is dedicated to helping artists (i.e. newer photographers, models, and videographers) get their feet wet in the industry and provide opportunities for growth. Jason has three different types of programs that allow for photographers, models, and videographers to work with Jason, while growing themselves and pursing their dreams.
RULES FOR Volunteer Program
In order to ensure success on Jason's shoots, all Volunteers and Interns are required to follow these rules for all Jason Lanier shoots.
Cameras- No cameras are allowed at all for any volunteers (at any time) or for interns within the first 6 months of their program. No exceptions. If you bring a camera you will be asked to leave.
Cellphone Pics and videos- Volunteers and Interns are not allowed to take pictures or videos of the shoot. The shoot is the intellectual property of Jason Lanier. Many times Jason is shooting new concepts with prototype gear that isn't permitted to be released to the public. A quick selfie may be allowed but only with permission.
Keeping Your Commitment- Volunteers and Interns are required to stay the entire duration of the shoot. Leaving early severely impacts the shoot as Jason limits the amount of people that can assist and if someone leaves early you leave Jason and his team short, and you rob someone else of that opportunity. If you leave early except for an emergency, you will not be asked to return.
Take the Good with the Bad- You will gain favor with Jason by your willingness to help out with a more mundane shoot rather than just asking to help out at exotic locations.
Privacy- there will be times when Jason or one of his team members asks you to leave certain portions of a shoot. This could be for a variety of reasons including the privacy of the client, proprietary information, or sponsorship requirements. Please do not be surprised if this happens on a shoot.
No Contact- Volunteers and Interns are NOT allowed to exchange contact information with any of Jason's models, clients, etc.
Jason's Gear- Volunteers and Interns are NOT allowed to touch any of Jason's gear without permission.
