    Ok, this is getting ridiculous.

    PART 1: You saw what happened when I approached Dublin Zoo, I am now an official photographer for them with year round access. Also doing promotional shots for their website.

    PART 2: The Zoo contact me and to advise my Asian Elephant shots feature on the front cover of the March Issue of Zoological Times Magazine

    PART 3: Last week blagged my way into the HOT FUZZ Movie Premier, got free beer (always important) food, shots of the stars and shots with the stars for myself and made a contact about where to sell the shots.

    PART 4: BRAND NEW THIS WEEK!

    I signed a 1 year contract with World Entertainment News Network (www.wenn.com) as a Showbiz Photographer aka Paperazzi. (usuing my contact from the week before) Then today I get a mail, I am going to the Irish Film and Television Awards tomorrow, shooting the whole red carpet thing, then going to the press room during the awards, free beer (yet again) and food, given free access to laptops to edit and e-mail my images and then to the after show party! All this using a D70 well.... up to today. As a result, it was the cataylist to up-grade! So now I am a proud owner of a D200 with 18-135mm lens and 2 new flash cards, 2 gig and 4 gig!

    What a mental week!

    Oh and thats not all, the camera store owner who I know well over the last 3 years, is now going to start selling my work, professionally printed and frames in his 3 stroes and I get 50% All I do is give him the images on CD-ROM!
