How to get a wedding 2nd shooter job?

As I'm looking at scheduled jobs, I'm wondering how to get more wedding 2nd shooter jobs?

Are you contacting other wedding photographers to see if they could use help?  Or advertising?  

Please share.

Just call up the photographers you would like to work with, let them know you are open to working together, give them your contact information and leave it at that.  If they have need, or are interested in working with you, you'll get the call.

Contacting wedding photographers seems too obvious. You need to find them and sell yourself.....

Why so serious?

A lot of the time, it's all about being up front and asking established photographers if they have a need. In my experience, a lot of wedding photographers opt for second shooters that they have an existing connection with. Maybe check out a local camera club and strike up some conversation with photographers in your area.
