No task too small, no dream too large.
Rankin Photography and Hunger Publishing are looking for Studio Assistants to support our busy teams. This opportunity is pitched at internship level and is a genuine opportunity to get involved in and gain experience in the studio aspects of our business.

The ideal candidate will be a film production or photography graduate who is hard working, a quick learner, conscientious and willing to get involved in a variety of tasks typical to a Runner across both the studio and the larger business.
A qualification in photography or film is not necessary, though some knowledge of photography, lighting, studio equipment, film production, post-production and software would be highly beneficial. What is more important is a can-do attitude and a strong drive for a career in the photo or film industry.
This is a varied and ‘hands on’ role, which requires an extremely organised, level-headed and positive person, comfortable in a busy and demanding studio environment.
