Recently I’ve been getting a lot of requests from students asking about work experience with me.
I’m afraid in the majority of cases this really isn’t possible right now.
The key thing that prevents this is simply the fact that whilst I am a semi-professional photographer, that’s is only part of what I do, and therefore I don’t work to regular hours and can’t really predict what I’m going to be doing at any particular time. I don’t run a full time studio, I work from home or rent studios if I need one for a specific shoot (see my Flickr for recent examples). Most of my photographic income actually comes from teaching others which is mostly in the form of specific one-to-one training days and location workshops.
