Default Contrast....Hate to Love.

Sorry about this but no photo. You know when you just have to tell everybody something, well, I do. Its massively to do with this forum, this site and all you good people with your advice, motivation and...well....niceness! It was only really since I found this site that I got back into photography BIG time, and also into digital. Today, the best day for years...I think I have a wedding booked, got the contract for a schools photos twice a year, and got offered a Monday to Friday job with a multi million pound company as a photographer in their marketing dept. using PS7!!! They are going to give me a salary, car, petrol and use of an EOS D60, 15mm, 15-30mm, 28-135mm, 70-300mm, studio lights (all of which I keep full time). Just to drive around Southern Spain taking pictures for brochures, real estate, posters, golf, swimming pools etc. Also travel to Dubai, London etc may be involved. I am not gloating (well..a little bit) but in all seriousness, it is the motivation and excitement from these forums that has spurred me on! Thank you all...WOOHOOOOOOOO! Oh, the contrast is from going to a job I hate, to a career I LOVE.

Not only are you blessed with an opportunity to do something you obviously enjoy, but you are going to get paid to do it and receive some nice perks with the job too.
It only goes to show that no matter how old or young you are opportunities will come your way and you just have to grasp them when they do.
I for one wish you every success in your newfound career.

I think the glow of your excitement has crossed the Atlantic and is already melting our snow.
:roll:

Congraulations on your job. It just sounds wonderful. If you ever need an assisitant, let me know. I will be on a plane right after we hang up the phone (that is if my wife lets me.)
