Listen to how lucky I am.
I got a new client, a major metropolitan newspaper, and today was my first shift.
‘Cause I’m the new guy, my photo slip probably should’ve involve a gold shovel or giant check but instead I pulled a slip that basically said ‘go take pictures of colorfully dress children dancing in the park’.
It was a great first-day assignment. There were pictures everywhere I turned. I was a little nervous (trying to impress my new editors) I’m fortunate not to have make a soup-sandwich out of my new opportunity. You have to be careful not to try too hard.
