    As of today I am officially a full time photographer's assistant at a very upscale studio here!! Wooohoo!! The owner saw some of my stuff and said he loved them and is starting me out as an assistant for now but will be training me over the next two years to become one of his senior level photographers!

    I made myself a promise on new years that I was going to take steps in my photography and stop just saying I was. Well, less than a month later, here I am. God is SO good to me! :thumbup:

    Grats! :D


    Yeah, some luck is involved, but it mainly takes getting yourself out there. Networking is an amazing thing. Most of the cool things that have happened for me concerning photography have been because of it.

    You are psyched!!! I worked as an assistant and then a photographer in the City for years. Mostly in Home Fashion. As I reflect on that time I can say that it was fun and slightly exciting. I learned a lot and am very proud of those years. I also remember a lot of menial tasks, kicking lights and carrying heavy gear. Not to mention endless days. Point is to stick with it. I am sure you will.
