Subject: Thank You (Semi Permanent..07?)

Hey Sophie,

I was at semi-permanent again this year, and it reminded me of the talk you gave at sydneys semi permanent a few years ago.. 07? 08? 06?

Your talk, and your work, proved to be amazingly inspirational to me.

At the time I was a young student product designer, and I have recently graduated from my course, and despite being a finalist for the Australian Design Awards, have struggled to find employment in the product design field (or any design field really). Unfortunately a pretty standard story for design graduates.

During my last year at uni, I decided to finally cave to my yearnings of beginning photography seriously; splashing out and buying a camera and a few lenses, and began my journey of band photography inspired by, among other things, your work.

Since then I have been fortunate to obtain a running contract doing event photography for ticketing company Moshtix, and in January I was the resident photographer at Beck's Festival Bar as part of the Sydney Festival 2010.
And while I am a LONG way from securing photography as my day job / sole source of income, it has definately proven to be a potential career pathway, with more work slowly coming in (even in other aspects, like portraiture and beauty shots).

I just wanted to let you know that you've had an impact on my life.
So thank you, for being an inspiration to not only me but the many others like me.
