Bruce Said:Work Experience - Photography?
We Answered:first you need to decide what you want to photograph! from christenings to forensics... the glamour and lifestyles of the paper hatsi are at the end of a long career...
i suggest that after you narrow your focus (go on groan a little) you apply to either indepent photographers who work in you chosen field, or to organisations who support such activities.
basically, if you fancy a CSI type career, goto the police force. if its advertising, or photojournalism, goto a newspaper... take your portfolio, and shine your shoes, and present yourself, and make them realise your the next Bailey, or Mcullin... (insert role models name)
and then you work your fingers till they bleed... photography is one small factor in teh print industry. its how we communicate, its how we sell... and how we learn.
visually, photography is stunning art, captured in a fraction of a blink of the eye...and photoshopped... every print you ever see will have been shopped one way or another. learn how to use it, or paintshop pro (which i started on) photo retouching and colour matching is a highly paid, highly skilled job... and theres so much choice... sadly, these skills dont magically appear, they require a bit of training, some understanding of the principles involved, and an eye...
Rebecca Said:photography work experience?
We Answered:I got a job as a second shooter to one of the elite wedding photographers in my area.
All I did was search online for photographers in my vicinity and contact them through email. I made it professional and expressed my interest in learning more about photography.
Some will say not to email because it's not personal. But hey, I sent out about 10 emails total and had 4 reply that were interested. So it worked for me.
Now I do my own photography and working for an established one really taught me a lot. Good luck!
Stephanie Said:Do you know anywhere to do photography work experience?
We Answered:At your age are you allowed to work legally in London? Perhaps a summer or after school part-time job...
Why not look into a photojournalism internship at one of the local newspapers - Star, Independent, Daily Mail, Guardian, Sun, Sunday Times, etc.
If you are too young to work legally (I don't know your laws), offer to do a month or two's worth of volunteer work just to learn and see what you enjoy doing and get a flavor for being around pros (what their environment & pressures are like)....
