I had an interview with Frank Pawluk on Wednesday, I’d applied for the Certificate in Digital Photography at Aoraki Polytech. I had to create a CV (um, yeah, how many years of doing NOTHING? LOL), and a portfolio of my work to take to the interview. Both achieved (though after all my sweating, he didn’t even look at my CV!). He opened my portfolio, and I held my breath…as he turned pages he made comments, about framing & shadows, and how engaged the subjects were…he closed the book, looked at me and said ‘you have a gift’ he then patted my book and said ‘you’ll make lots of money…lots” LOL ah, how does a girl like to hear those words!! We chatted some more about life & what I wanted from the course, and he finished (after about 45 minutes!) by saying, “I have no hesitation about accepting you on the spot, you’ll be an asset to the course” Um, hello?? Me?? I was so relieved, floored, shocked – everything, but most of all – stoked!! My dream has potential to be a reality! But then, this morning as I looked up Frank, I discovered how talented he is & about his career & now I’m humbled to have had the compliments about my work!!
I can’t wait til February!!
