Photo industry jargon can be a bit overwhelming at times, but once you get a feel for it, it's a lot of fun. This glossary is 500+ terms, words and slang you'll hear on set. From A-Clamp to Zoom, we got you covered. Trust me, there's always a new term to learn.


The Directory is HI-Powered; human-intelligence is what you need on-set. The photo-assistant-AI-robot will never satisfy. Find the best people for your shoot. AI can't replicate your beautiful work, nor the team you need to create it.  Find your people with The Directory.
