    Something cool has happened to me over the past couple of days. I have emailed a photographer in Amsterdam whom has done a lot of magazine portrait work. He's photographed Madeleine Albright and Jack Black (to name a couple that some of the Americans on here would know. He's also photographed many Dutch famous personalities (footballers, MPs, singers, actors, etc.)

    I have been invited to his studio to ask questions about how I may further my career as a photographer. I plan to write down a list of questions and hopefully get some contacts, too. It's incredibly exciting for me as I greatly respect this photographer's work.

    Here's his website: www.doomernik.com The Dutchies on here may have seen his images. He's captured a really great image of football commentator Johan Derksen.

    Thank you, Mike. :)

    I will share what I learn to help anybody who feels they need it.

    It's a tricky thing living in Europe and trying to break in as I've really not a big clue how to start. I had a meeting with an ad agency when I first arrived but they were really strange people who were not very open to someone new coming around. Yes. Rejection. A big part of being an artist!

    I would work on the photos you are bringing him. A list of questions will be the easy part. His work is outstanding. It will be a learning experience.
