There. 2 photos I cought the other day. Instead of writing a text, I spent too much time reading blogs today. I failed my probation period as a photographer of food for a supplement magazine on food of one daily newspaper. I wonder why I failed it… My photos are getting published, but I behieved not well. I showed I didn’t like the fact that tasks are getting multiplied before we talk about the contract. Then, I came to a session, when the editor changed his opinion and wanted the photos already taken brought to another place, as he postponed the session for the next day… so he had to wait for me to bring the discs. I only had a camera on me. He was angry that it took me some time. I was tired and was paying taxies all day. Should I be honored to photograph fish, and pay my taxy rides to do it? I failed. I fired myself. The other option was to be on the stand by and see if the editor gets less angry for I haven’t been on the stand by all the time… I gave in 2 discs from 2 sessions. I payed about 5 taxi rides and got 1 meal, nice fish. I was also given a lesson on how things are not getting done for papers. Finaly, I sent an SMS firing myself, not quiting, just so that I give a lesson back, on how things are supposed to be done when you deal with someone you are not satisfied with, as editor was not with me. i wonder weather I am vain and cannot take such a lesson, or I was exhausted, or simply at the age of 34 I cannot afford to volunteer and be at the disposal until they offer me a contract, which here takes always much longer then agreed at start… Maybe it is the same elsewhere, I wouldn’t know. I feel relieved, I must say.
