i can tell you one thing, it's tough to get in direct from bmt, unless you been through APU.
I have friends who went interview with portfolios and stuff, many didnt make the cut. They usually prefer to hire "civilian signed on" staff / regular staff, with only the odd one or two nsf junior photographer.

Like Yat says, maybe try contacting directly?

So you are in NS serving BMT. Hope you enjoy your BMT...volunteer to become your unit Photographer and take photo for your PC, OC, CO, Pl Sgt, Pl Commander etc and get them to recommend. Else stay in an operation unit and become the unit photographer if you want to escape those training.

OOC? i think dun bother. you look at which vocations other OOC people get posted to even with A lvls or Dip. you can roughly guess your fate too. OOC personnel have the least power in choosing their vocations. but then, if you have "connections", then all rules are void.

downgraded? if you are you might have a chance since nowadays there are alot of division/brigade/units with full-time photographers/videographers. im c2 and doing this for my unit and going to ord in feb. alternatively you can try film unit but you need film/video knowledge. good luck for your posting.

it's very very hard. they don't usually find those very professional ones anyway. i don't really know whats their criteria for those pioneers mags but i do shoot for my unit anyway. there's always good and bad parts.

being able to shoot COCs, battalion days and some other 'interesting' events. shot my PS's wedding also.

i think you have to be downgraded to be a photographer there. and recommendations? hahah good luck bro.
