My first job

What is your personal photographic journey? In a photographic sense, how did you start, and with what equipment? How have you progressed, and where are you, and your photographic skillset, placed today?

This is a place where members may share their personal photographic journey. Some of our normal posting rules are suspended within this section. To illustrate you story, for instance, you may post more than the normal 4 or so images. In fact, we actively encourage you to share with us images that illustrate how your photography has changed since you started. So readers with slower connections please be warned that postings made within this section may be - will be - larger than the norm.

My first job

Postby sirhc55 on Sun Jul 13, 2014 7:23 pm

In Australia that is. Arrived end of 1973 and in 1974 went to work for John Border Photographics in Liverpool Street. From there to JB Photographics Centrepoint and in 1975 I started work with Dick Smith Electronics as his HiFi manager. Left DSE in 1981 and became a full on designer (graphic).

This is a photo of the JB store in Liverpool St.

I started my life with nothing and I’ve still got most of it left

It's astounding!
Time is fleeting!
Madness takes it's toll...
But listen closely...
Not for very much longer...
I've got to keep control.
Remember doing the Time Warp.
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me.
And the void would be calling.
Let's do the time warp again!
Let's do the time warp again!
:?: :D :shock: :D

Seriously, very good photo and I like it.
