Just like to share some pretty interesting things that happened to me last week. I got my first photo assignment from 26th June to 1st July. It is a all-expense paid trip to Khao Laak in the south of Thailand to cover the lives of the children and survivors of the tsunami. The photos are going into a coffee-table book that is going to be published and sold worldwide in collaboration with a teacher from my school and all the funds go to a charity for the children who have lost both their parents from the tsunami. A rather interesting assignment as the pictures needed are the National Geographic type so wish me luck on that!
Also after my first try at wedding photography, I've been noticed in school (I'm already an ex-student though...) and I have my first paid assignment as the primary photographer for a wedding!
I guess I have learnt myself that if you try hard enough you can get somewhere. Not bad for an 18 year old budding photographer eh? hehe...
Wish me luck! If anybody has any advice for me please write in. Thanks!
