Status report (and a quiet open call)

Since my last post, I have been acting according to The Plan – and even though karma doesn’t seem to be on my side just yet, things are definitely happening.

A few months ago, I decided to learn the ins and outs of photobook creation and become a designer of those wonderful things myself. I had enough of organised training for a while, therefore I am going for self-study this time. I have been doing online courses at my own pace ever since and reading books that are related. I have been in the graphic design business for quite a while, but there is still so much to learn!

I’m also trying to become an intern at some place where I could pick up even more, on the job. Real life stuff. And this is the part of the deal that turned out to be truly difficult: I contacted several people I would love to learn from. A few of them replied to my emails, I even had a meeting, but it will take time to get any further. I knew it wouldn’t be a piece of cake to find an internship alongside the job I need to keep, but I for sure didn’t expect it to be this big of a challenge. I’m not going to give up though!

Now, I am toying with the idea of finding some photographers that wouldn’t mind trusting someone inexperienced handling their work. Should you know anyone that might be interested, do let me know.
