    i don't know if this is appropriate in here.. coz it is kinda embarassing but i am just thrilled to bits and since it is photography related i just had to let it out
    wahoooooooooooooooo

    i was approached some time back to travel as a photographer for a London School of Economics sponsored research project. I showed my portfolio to this lady who was the head of the project here. Well she love the stuff and said i was kinda in, but then since my whole trip had to be sponsored by LSE it was not really finalised, as they did not see the need for a photographer.
    So, today i get a call and she tells me to send over a CV/Resume (something i did not have and had to make right then!) and my portfolio immediately to her coz the head of the project from London had come down to assess stuff and they had to approve of 'the photographer', and as such it would only be finalised once he gives his nod of approval.
    So yay.. he loved it! and i'm in.. i dont get paid or anything but this opportunity is something i can't miss! I get to travel down south India with their research team and shoot shoot shoot what i love most, the people.
    YAyyyyyyy :blushing: :blushing: :blushing:
    and this research could culiminate into a coffee table book with photographs by :blushing: me
    I get to go around the 15th Jan for about a week :D
    man i'm kinda excited and nervous now...phew can i handle it? *pressure* this is my first ever photography gig of sorts
    :confused:
    :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

    That's great and you'll do fine. Your people portraits have already shown us. And apparently your portfolio is impressive - which does not surprise me in the least! So who else but you should be their photographer, eh? It CAN only be you! Congratulations. You deserve this so!
