Well, I suppose I owe my -6> readers an apology! I am terribly sorry for the neglect I have show the blog for the past months, but I have been very, VERY busy!
So, I believe I left this with me going away to Spain with my girlfriend, and parents! It was lovely, I took my camera and took loads of photos and none came out amazing, on a photographic level. Although I did try a meter long German sausage, which blew my mind, and went to Benidorm and a few other Spanish towns and cities, which is always good to see.
Then! I had my work experience! Yes! It was two weeks with the Daily Express, shadowing photographers and a couple days in the office. It was eye-opening to say the least, I had a real taste of what both a staff photographer and a freelance photographer does throughout their day. Which trust me, is a hell of a lot! It consisted of a lot of standing around waiting with a staff, or of showing up, getting in, and getting out with a freelancer. I managed to get a picture published! It was a photo of a girl from Selfridges at their Christmas store opening. As you can imagine I was ecstatic. And I also managed to take a photo that I am very pleased with, but, I’m not allowed to publish it before them. I also think I should mention a really cool photographer I met by the name of Daniel Lynch! He was taking some really good shots and gave me some really good genuine advice.
So, now. Now I’m keeping an eye out, I have been put through to a photo and news agency from my work experience, and have just applied for an assisting job with someone in London.
I feel I have rambled enough, it’s my birthday on Monday, 19! I’ve got a very heavy weekend planned for after that and then a holiday, so if I survive it all, I promise to post when or before I return! Also! Subcribe to my e-mail list, and you’ll be sent an e-mail when I do write that next post!
