Imagine you are a photographer - fresh out of college after completing your photographic course and keen to impress your new boss with what you can do for the local paper.
Thinking you will be sent undercover to do some investigative journalism/photography - maybe attend crime scenes, accidents, demonstrations etc - you bring your best camera to work.
Your editor send you on your first (of many repetitive jobs) - "Get me a picture of people looking angry about dog shit!".
And so your life as a photographer on a local paper is mapped out for the rest of your career. No matter how much you try to put your expertise into practice, you can't make your photo's look any different from all the rest.
Here are just a few of the best ...
|I'm angry cause I got a fine for not picking up my dog's shit!|
|Still life shot.|
