    Can you please give me a detailed job description of your job?
    How did you get your job?
    How long are you there?
    What was the one thing about you/your experience that you believe got
    you the job?
    What are your daily duties?
    What do you most like about the job?
    What are the best things it has to offer?
    What is your professional goal (what would you like to do?)
    How do you assess the future possibilities in this job? Do you think
    it will aid you in achieving your ultimate goal?
    How long do you plan to stay?
    What is the starting salary for a position like this?
    What is the "down side" of your job?
    What kind of person would you hire to replace you if you left?
    What advice would you give to someone who wants a job like this?

    If anyone is willing to help me? I would be so grateful to anyone.

    It's not advice you are seeking. It's someone to do your homework for you. Stop being lazy and go go out and meet a photographer face to face. You might learn something.

    A monkey.

    Actually, it does look like you've typed out a nice question sheet for an interview with a photographer who would be willing to share. --You might be in the wrong place!

    I agree with Matt that face-to-face would be best. However, I understand that in this day and age a face-to-face may be inconvenient due to your age, transportation, location, expense, crime, whatever...

    Try this; get the phone book out, make some calls. If you can, set it up to do an in-person interview. If not, try for a phone interview. Take notes and write everything down: this is the important part, this is where you learn!

    I like visiting studios and seeing all the stuff. Leave the web for a last desparate resort. You never know who or what you're talking to on the net. If you must, transcribe everything instead of just printing a copy.

    Once again Garbz has nailed it. Humorous? Sure. True? you bet.

    I'm not sure I would use it as a complete business plan, but it is to the point.

    The topic title needs a little work.
