Anonymous asked: With the work experience at GF, i live in Perth but i might be able to fly over and stay in a near by hotel. Do you think i could be accepted? Also how long is the work experience, and what dates? Or can you choose which dates you want to go? I'm so confused, the website doesn't explain much :(
I would hope so. You never know till you try… well email. EMAIL THEM, ask them (Cherie) all you wanna know and she’ll get back to you for sure. Work experience with GF is one week and you can pretty much choose which ever dates. I chose mine on my September holidays :)
Anonymous asked: okay i will, thank you sarah. you're such a lovely person you know? <3
I do my best, can’t be a bitch all the time now can i? haha only kidding. reveal yourself! haha
Anonymous asked: do publications sort out passes for you?
Yep! They sort everything out for you. All you have to do is send in your request and they do their best to sort out a pass for you!
Anonymous asked: I swear I'm not a creep, I just checked twitter and saw your tweet and I'm so excited for you! Getting paid to shoot a gig is so cool :D Are you allowed to say what band you're shooting? Is it even a band? Wow I'm so amazed:)
It’s cool, creep all you like. So long as you’re not some 80 year old plotting to take me away…
It’s not for a band, more for like a publication. I’ve always wondered how people got paid to shoot gigs by publications. I’m always like “WHAT THE FUCK?! HOW’D HE GET PAID?! I SHOOT FOR 7865 PEOPLE AN HAVEN’T GOTTEN SHIT” haha, don’t get me wrong I love shooting for the pubs i shoot for now, but getting paid for taking photos? That’s fucking sick.
Will definitely let you in when I know what’s happening :)
Anonymous asked: Hi Sarah I'm the anon who contacted you a while back about contributing to FL and I'm squealing because even though I never shot a gig for them, I'm still on the mailing list and I wanna rejoice with you haha :D
Ooo I remember! Fuck yeah! That’s awesome man. Hopefully this time round you get to shoot a show for them sometime :) congrats!!!!! haha I know how it feels to freak out to little things like that I do it all the time when people respond to emails re photo related stuff ha
Anonymous asked: how long did it take for tone deaf to get back to you about contributing? I just applied a few minutes ago and I'm so nervous, it's the first time I've applied for contribution and I don't know if i"ll get it because I have no experience haha. But I took some photos of my friends band with my point and shoot and emailed them in so they can see what my shots look like. Congrats on getting accepted, I hope I do too and then we can both shoot shows!
It took about two or three weeks for them to get back to me :) I hope you get it, everyone deserves a shot! Well that’s cool to see that you’re willing and passionate. I know so many people who have applied for roles as contributors yet have nothing to present to the editor, it’s really good that you’ve got work to show.
Thank you very much, good luck love!
Anonymous asked: congrats on getting the gf internship! if you don't mind me asking, how are you going to do it? I'm assuming it'll be held in sydney, and you live in melbourne. I live in melbourne too and I have zero sydney relatives and I'm too scared to live on my own there, which is why I can't apply, otherwise I totally would have!
Sorry I’ve forgotten to reply to this!! ah.
Thank you so so much, I am so excited. I received the last bit of confirmo on Friday and I am completely stoked. GF Mag is in the bag, now to move on to another dream; work exp at Top Shop and a job at American Apparel haha!
Yes I live in Melbourne, I will be flying to Sydney for a couple weeks and staying with my family there. My best friend also lives there too, so it’s going to be great settling in for a couple weeks and working at Girlfriend :)
I’m hoping to move to Sydney after year 12 so I can get permanent roles and internships at these Magazines, would be bloody brilliant.
Anonymous asked: okay thanks sarah:) I'll probably still be all anxious until I receive the email! Random question but I'm curious, what shows are you shooting/planning in shooting coming up soon?
We all are!! Right now I have requested Hot Chelle Rae/Cher Lloyd and that’s all. I also want to send requests in for New Empire/Masketta Fall/ A Sleepless Melody, Owl City, Alexisonfire and waiting on Soundwave!!! ^___^
Are you planning to shoot anyone soon?
p.s GO UNANON ta xoxo
Anonymous asked: In regards to FL, I still have my manage options but I have not received any emails or messages stating that I'm still a part of the team. Am I still considered a contribute or...? I hope I am. The problem is, I never got round to shooting a gig for FL so they have every reason to boot me, I haven't contributed anything!
I haven’t either. They just put me back in their data base and I got my manage options back, stoked! Haha. As long as you have your manage options you’re still a contributor, you’re in their data base and whenever they decide to send that email, you’ll get it :) ahh that sucks! Good luck love.
Anonymous asked: how will i know if im still a FL contributer?? ARE YOU?
Is your usual “manage” option still there? I think I am. I know I emailed them back with the wrong email address and I got an email the other day and they were confused, I hope I’ve cleared things up, still waiting on word though. If FL booted you there are always other pubs out there for you to sign up for!
Anonymous asked: do you have a job? how can you possibly earn enough money to get a 5dmk2 by new years? i've been saving all year for a cheap dslr and lens and i still dont have enough :(
I just got one actually, that’s why I can now see upgrading my camera sooner than I thought :) I also have quite a bit in my savings and christmas is coming up as well as new years!
You should check out digital rev. It’s pretty much how I can afford everything now. Low prices and free shipping #yesmate. Don’t give up, it’ll be so worth it in the end!
Anonymous asked: I like your photos a lot, but I think you have a lot to learn. Your photos are such nice quality, but are awkwardly framed/positioned. I think you should try following "the rule of thirds" and maybe experimenting with blank space. Sometimes you use it so nicely, and other times its all wrong, either too much or not enough. But I think you are so talented, and that you will one day go far!
When you’re in the pit, under pressure and have not even 15 minutes to make your editor happy it kinda cancels out the technical side of photography. I literally have no time to think through ever single step thoroughly. Please do tell me which photos are awkwardly framed and those where I use blank space too much. I’d like to see what you think is wrong with my work…
Anonymous asked: whats your shoot tomorrow?
It’s just a fun shoot with some friends. I recently got my Canon Photo5 thing and one of the briefs are Tissue Paper: Strong Color, so that’s what it’s based on. Going to be so much fun :)
rosemarybones asked: you are so incredibly talented and wonderful and you're a total inspiration to me. not that you planned to but don't ever stop taking pictures plsssss. have a lovely day/night :]
Godammit you are so lovely. I honestly don’t get how i’m all those things because i’m just being me but man, this has made my week. Thank you very much for your kind words.
I won’t ever, promise.
You too love,
Anonymous asked: will you be shooting soundwave next year? :))
HI HI HI,
Oh man I really, really hope so. It’s been my dream ever since I began shooting. I’ve aways been too scared that my work wasn’t good enough or I wasn’t good enough to shoot such a huge thing.
I’ve been in the process of creating relationships with my editors and improving my art, I think I’m ready for Soundwave. I am so hungry and determined for it. Right now it’s too soon for accred to be determined. But I’m there, one of the Ed’s I’ve been building a relationship with has said the okay for me shooting for them. I am so damn honored and grateful. Let’s hope AJ/Chris approve me :)
