I just wanted to post some good news, i got in contact with a photographer and basically laid it out on the table "I want to be your assistant, ill work for free to start with ill do anything, i just want to get some experience" he said yes! I am meeting him soon so we can discuss things futher liek when i finally move to the city, and then he mentioned paying me and working with him for a while! I also mentioned i wanted to be an assistant for quite some time, which i think made him realise i wasn't just going to work off him and then go out myself...i said im willing to start from the bottom and work up again!
