    Default Not making money anymore

    I've now had to finish with supplying the papers with sports images as they now have a new look and need a more full time freelance photographer (i only worked over the weekends)to cover all aspects of the town, though they just finished the one they already had and more importantly the guy that i worked for

    So at the moment I'm awaiting news of what i can do next there's some things in the pipeline but nothing set in stone so just have to wait and see.

    The wife has already said the living room wants decorating the hedge needs cutting and she thought i might now get round to laying a few pavers

    In need to find something quickly.

    sorry to hear lost that little contract as I know you enjoyed it and its an added bonus to get paid for a hobby

    it sounds like the Mrs is going to keep you busy and you'll need something pretty solid to escape that list .....good luck

    are you looking for something that will replace the lost income or just another subject ?

    I have a full time job so i'm not desperate for the money but it sure comes in handy, the majority that i earned from the papers went back into photography gear I've just started to put money away for the next gen 5D so that will be put on hold till something turns up.

    There is a few things the guy i worked for is looking into a new website with advertising all over it to gain capital and also another new paper that's started in near by Driffield called Driffield & wolds weekly https://www.facebook.com/DriffieldWoldsWeekly

    But they need a bit more time to get things up and running as its only their 2nd week but are keen to use us

    Its a nice way to buy new kit and a great excuse to sell the cost to the Mrs ;o)

    With everything going online I wouldn't like to try and set up a newspaper let alone sell space on it - A friend of mine was running the advertising section in a large local paper with 10 sales staff selling space but he was made redundant due to failing sales - not an easy game

    hope you find something

    I presume the 5DX ? I've not looked at the rumour sites yet

    It's all gone a bit quiet on the 5D front so maybe won't see the light of day till next year (which might be a good thing for me now LOL)

    Good luck on getting out of the job list Paul - I find things like that eat into photography time!
