i need an assistant….someone who lives in salvador, bahia and can work with me next week for about 3 days….wishing for someone with good people skills and digital photo processing and transmitting skills

please post your telephone or any contact details here…..i arrive in salvador tuesday evening march 27th……

now, this sometimes happens to me….i think i have a whole week free to work on things, catch up etc…then, i end up in full "panic mode" as right now….this whole scramble is because of an ad shoot…i do very few advertising shoots, but sometimes i have the right style for the right campaign and these things pay for all of the other things i do that bring in no income for me…things like this blog and various little personal photography projects that i do just for fun….

besides, this is a good one…they just need pictures in my own style…i have worked so much in bahia and so this is an ideal commission, albeit a bit rushed…..

come in, come in bahia!!!!

    Hello, I know your fantastic photos, some books and Geomag. I went to Salvador and contry of Bahia, Chapada Diamantina, Lençois.About 6 hour by car from Salvador.Beautiful places. In Salvador is ok for take some pictures, but take care around. In turist places there police and is safe for this.There is internet cafe and darkrooms digital. Some people ask for money after or before take pictures in Salvador.

    I´m live in Rio de Janeiro, I´m freelancer photographer. Any help call to 21-8189 7934 or 21 2259 2858. In Rio I can help you.

  5. arg! david why couldn’t i see your post last week? I’m alredy in rio. I’ve worked for steve mccurry and his studio and still work with them when the need arises. I’ll start checking your blog on a daily basis from now on just in case you have another assignment in brazil. My background is in computers so i’m sure i could help with your digital needs. I’m sure steve would give me a good recomendation as well as steve’s studio manager (amanda) or michael courvoisier. Have fun in salvador, i hope i have the pleasure of working with you someday.

  6. ok guys…everybody go back to what they were doing…brazil trip just got cancelled!!! so sorry to leave you guys hanging….unfortunately, this is the bad thing about advertising…they change their minds all the time and for reasons that do not seem to be reasons….

    anyway, i will finish my shooting on this job here in new york….i could not imagine anyway flying 18 hours to salvador, shooting for two days and then coming back home….that would have been such a “tease”..when i do come to bahia, i will stay for longer than two days….i love love bahia….sorry not to have met you guys…next time
