    I would like to contact Alex Bailey and other stills photographers. ..I am looking for a work placement as a Stills Photographer. I am currently studying BA (Hons) in Creative Practice at Newcastle College.

    I would appreciate your help.

    Hope to hear from you soon.
    Kind regards
    Wendy

    Hi Wendy, Thanks for getting in touch. Unfortunately there are no work placements for unit stills photographers. Most film sets barely have patience or space for one stills photographer let alone a second work placement/intern photographer – this has been confirmed to me by all my unit stills photographer contacts.

    If you’ve got a passion to pursue this line of work, your best bet is to start by reading TT12 Getting Work as a Stills Photographer, as well as other resources I’ve listed on my Tech Talk page and to grab yourself a copy of Alex’s book.

    Hi,

    I’ve purchased this book through Alex’s movie photos site but just wanted to know how long it took for your copy to arrive. Great mini review by the way, I’m looking forward to receiving my copy :)

    I think mine was purchased through amazon.co.uk and it arrived within 48hrs. I have no knowledge of order times when direct from Alex. You may be able to contact him through his new twitter account @buntyme, or alternatively through the comments on his Blog.
