Hey all, I've been missing from the boards lately but I promise I am still around! Anyway, I've got a question. Today I recieved a phone call from someone who works at a local newspaper. Apparently a while back I applied for a position that said "Advertisement Photographer", for the local paper. I probably applied using one of these websites that I was a member of awhile ago. Despite the title of this thread I KNOW what a normal advertisement photographer is; takes pictures for ads, simple enough. Lord knows I've done my fair share of these pictures, both for some companies, and on my own as "practice". However, the question I have then is; what does a NEWSPAPER need with an advertisement photographer? Am I to believe that a newspaper would hire someone to help a company set up an ad in the newspaper? I was under the impression that if company XYZ wanted to advertise, they would then need to provide that ad themselves. Perhaps someone in the newspaper business can help fill me in. This job is sort of my Ultimate Goal in life; taking pictures for a living that can susatain my wife, my kids, and I, so I don't want to screw up the interview. He saw my pictures though, and then called me, so that excites me. It's a major newspaper too, with a circulation in hundres of thousands. Wow I may faint.
