First off - the assistant position has been filled. After about 60 CV's, 300 hits on my ad at Gumtree and numerous queries, I have appointed a new assistant. He will be revealed 1 May 2009... What I realized is 2-fold: There are youngsters out there with some mad photography skills (I went solo age 21... I know the feeling of apprehension, despite having the skills), and the market is depressed. It's depressing finding that freelancers who've been eeking it out for 3 to 4 years, suddenly has to start applying for junior positions to pay some bills. To those applicants and individuals I have one word: RESPECT. You're heroes, just keep going. I had to waiter tables in my first year to stay alive. God bless your efforts.
Then just a little post on getting around - some images from my shoots - just self-portraits (often taken as light tests).
So these are just random moments from my work days. I love my job. I love the people, the places, the business, the effort, the everything. Right now I like blogging - as part of work.
