    Congratulations and very well done. I can well understand why you are delighted - and landing a job in an area of interest is always a wonderful experience. In any case, I hope it works out very well for you and that your new job turns out to be a rewarding and fulfilling one, both personally and professionally.

    How about changing the verb - or adding another - in your thread title? Until I read your post, I wasn't quite sure what you meant; indeed, I assumed that the verb 'stoked' meant the opposite until I consulted a dictionary.......

    Thanks - it makes more sense for anyone who happens to chance upon the thread.

    Again, congrats, very well done, and may you long enjoy the new job.

    Alright, maybe nitpicking, but as far as i'm concerned, on the front page side menu, I read "Really pleased myself :)" :D

    I see you live in Exeter, that's awesome! Where do you take your photos? I'm based in Plymouth.

    It has long been dealt with, but the thread originally read 'stoked' which had me baffled. This was a verb I had never encountered, except in the context of 'stoking' the furnaces of steam ships, so I suggested amending it, while congratulating the OP on the fact that he had successfully landed a job he had long dreamed of obtaining.

    Congratulations, Mate!:D

    It's wonderful that you are now able to make a decent living (I assume...and hope) while pursuing your art.


    (And if you want to please yourself...that's good too!:eek: :p)

    haha!,

    well it's actually unpaid but i get to go to all the big car shows free and get to take my shots to the next level by going places i hadn't before so that is reward enough. Maybe one day i'll go pro and get paid but for me it's just a passion and i do it for the love of motorsport and cars :)

    Grats! What kind of a media company, one focused on car photos like an auto magazine?

    I don't understand. They sign you, but expect you to work for free? Are you an employee or a free lance photographer who has just been granted access?

    Really Pleased with myself :)

    The team are a non-proffit media team who host an online magazine. Basically i have joined the team. I guess if you simplify it it's a group of friends who take pictures of cars, post them online and just get free entry to shows for promoting the car scene
