51


Press pass. Hell yeah!

What a loooooong but good day! Got up at 7am so I'm pretty knackerd now. But it was worth it.
Thom came with me, and I dragged him around London so i could finish my City project. Took some images of Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, and then the National Gallery. I really like them, so I hope my tutor will say that they go well with the Berlin photos in my tutorial tomorrow.

When I was done we met up with Thom's friends and walked (rushed) to Somerset House. I was a bit late, so I really thought they would start without me (it clearly said in the papers we were given that it was VERY important that we were on time because of the tight schedule), but it was fine; they hadn't started yet. Puh.

After I signed all the papers and got my press pass there was a whole lot of waiting. One and a half hours waiting to be exact. But we got some good advice from Professional Photographer Magazine's editor, and he said that he's really thankful that so many turned up because the standard of the competition entries were really high, and a guy from Canon gave me some tips on what settings to use during a Catwalk shoot (thanks for that, it was really helpful!).

The show started at 7pm and was over at 7.20pm. Very quick, but it was fun! Really a great experience and I got many photos that I'm really proud of. When I was on my way out I stopped to thank the editor for this opportunity, and said that I got some really good photos. And he said that I should upload them to the magazine's website, and "we'll se what happens"! Maybe (hopefully) someone with jobs will see them (hehehe, dreaming).

I'll show some of the photos at a later date, but right now I have to go through the City project photos and sleep.
