And a different New Year.
Well first and foremost the most pressing news right now is that yesterday I received a phonecall from my manager saying that the mobile division of our company is being dissolved in order to put all our focus into the permanent studios where apparently the most money is.
Making my position superfluous.
The permanent studios do things a bit differently, mostly they're always in the same place (i.e no more escapism and travel for me), and you become more of a telemarketer than a photographer.
With us Mobiles we just set up the studio somewhere, shoot, send our film/discs back and move on. Permanent Studio staff stand in malls with clipboards, make calls to leads, book people in, then do the shooting part.
Not exactly my cup of tea, but better than nothing. My manager told me that if I went to Permanent Studio I'd still have to go through the interview process etc but I'd come with high commendations... they love me. :)
This leaves me with a few options:
a) Cut my losses and look for another job.
b) Work in the permanent studio (Newton would be the closest, which poses its own issues), doing the same thing in the same place everyday.
c) Work in a permanent studio whilst looking for another job.
I'm going to take C thanks Eddie, lock it in.
I've told Basil who, amongst others, brought this job to my attention, to get right on to finding me another one thankyou. Hehe. Ooh and I'm wearing the wristband she brought me from Queensland, I feel a bit like Brian Kinney meets Croc Dundee.
