entertainment industry coach question 763:Do you have to be in a union to take pictures on set?
Not only do you have to be in a union but there's an actual name for the classification: Still Photographer.
In some cases they let cameras on the set for continuity and wardrobe, but to take stills of the production you must be a still photographer.
Now if you are a still photographer and you're not in the union you can accrue your days toward getting into the union by working on non-union productions. And be sure to check with Contract Services to make sure you are saving the important paperwork like pay stubs, etc. so your days will qualify.
