Hi all, I've just started a campaign to get people to vote for me at http://www.phototraining4u.com/apprentice.html -
I've also created a video accompanying the drive for votes. It was quite fun making it on iMovie, I've never used the application before. It's been lurking on my Mac forever, until now. It came in handy just in time.
That is how I generally work, something needs doing, somehow I get it done. Most things I have done in life have been self taught - or picked up along the way.
When the video was being created, it seemed right to tell a real story. My two children are the funniest things to me, and I admit I have numerous horrendous images when I've tried in earnest to photograph properly.
Here's the text from the You Tube upload:
This is a cheeky plug to win votes for my first ever entry into a photography competition. I'm amazed that I made it to the Top 40, as I've started very late into making a career with photography. Plus, with juggling kids on one income (thanks Mr Slaughter) I'm just hoping this might work.
If you could go and vote for me, I might get into the Top 10 for final selection. Ooh it's just like the X-Factor! The team at PT4U urge all entrants to spread the message far and wide, so please tell your friends and their friends, Tweet it, Facebook it, Meme it, Celebrity endorsement? Yes please!
