    I am currently producing a series of PR shoots (1 day shoot per country) across Europe in September and October and need an English-speaking local assistant to be on hand for the prep day and shoot day in each location.

    Countries are:
    Switzerland (Zurich)
    Russia (Moscow)
    Italy (Rome)
    France or Belgium

    Would love to hear of any recommendations of good assistants.
