How it Went

So last night when I got off work I went straight over to The Studio to talk to the owner.  (For those of you who don’t know I was meeting with a local photographer hoping to get a job in the future.)  He was a really nice guy.  The studio is really big with lots of cool backdrops and props.  He really has a very well thought out place.  We talked for just over an hour.  I gave him my resume and talked about my experience.  He showed me all around the place and introduced me to everyone there.  There are about 4 or so girls that work there full and part time.  I took my lap top so that I could show him my portfolio but we never got around to looking at it.  I started to get frustrated at that but then he offered me a job.  Not a permanent one but still a job!  They are having a special weekend coming up for Easter pictures and he said I could work the whole weekend.  I will be getting a good feel for things and they will see how I do under pressure.  I know I can do great because I catch on fast!  Plus I am ready to burst at the seams where I have been suppressing all that sort of energy. 

So maybe it will be crazy that I work all weekend like that but it will be fun.  And who knows maybe it will lead to a good job close to home!  I would be 10 minuets away rather than 30!  Oh and better than that they are open 10:30-6:30.  No more getting up and running out the door looking like crap!  All in all he said that he liked the energy I put off and the conversation we had and he can tell I would fit right in there.  He said there are no openings now but we will see.  I think basically if I do good enough he will make room for me on his team.  He had said that none of the girls hardly pick up the camera that work there.  They each had a place they worked and didn’t do much more than that one thing.  He talked like they were trying to learn other things and that it was coming along slowly.  I have had experience doing every bit of what they do there (sales, dealing with the lab, working on the computer, photographing, printing proofs…).  He said he has yet to have anyone who could do everything.  I might just be that person I think! 

I am really excited and can’t wait to see how it all turns out!  

*It is actually really soon-March 8 and 9 is the weekend I will be working!
