Hi all,
It's not that ''going pro'' but Im pleased to tell you the school has installed me as photographer of the school, well, the stuff is not that great:
My own Panasonic FZ28 and the (old but very fast!) Pentax K100D Super Kit.
How much better could I start as Im 15 years now?
Grtz

good job, i got the same thing last october (i'm a senior - 19 years old). i go to shoot all of the sports events, festivals and any trips i go on aswell.

it's a great feeling seeing your photos on the schools website and occasionaly in a newspaper..
i advise you get a lot of experience with low light photography because i find myself in a low light situation 90% of the time when i'm shooting stuff for school.

Congrats!
I've been an official school photographer too, for about a year. The school only 'discovered' me in my final year, so I didn't get to do a lot of work for them. Now I'm in university and there's people who have taken the job already... Plus I'm too busy to do too many assignments.

One thing I advice you to do: if they pay you, and I assume they do, try to convince them to pay in cash. For all my assignments at school, I got gift certificates. Not trying to sound ungrateful, but I hated those. Can't spend them at any camera store and I don't want to buy stuff at stores where you can spend them... Luckily my mom was willing to buy most of the certificates...
It's a great experience for you to learn a different style of photography, where you have to look around more actively and act faster.
