#567 Guest Student Post

During December we had the chance to take on a photo student from Algonquin College. We both learned. Below is his take on the life of a photographer and a few of his photos.

40 Hours In the Life of a Professional Photographer.

Hi my name is Matt Usherwood I’m a young local Ottawa photographer new to this industry. I had the opportunity to intern with Harry for 40 hours.

To sum up a co-op placement I spent 8+ hours with him for a number of days and do whatever he asks me to do, whether that be cleaning garbage cans (ed. note: it was only one!) to assisting him on shoots. When I first came into this internship I had no idea what to expect.

I’ve been behind the scenes in a photographer’s life. We’ve had discussions on certain topics, he has also answered a lot of questions I’ve had for a while. I had the opportunity to work with him on some assignments and meet some clients. This internship was a big eye opener for me.

I wish I had more time than 40 hours to intern with him.

When I finish school in April I plan to go tree planting and travel. I don’t know where I’ll live yet but I know I will find work where ever I go as long as I am persistent about it.

Thanks Matt!

  1. What a wonderful experience for an up and coming photographer. I’m excited that Matt had this opportunity and expect he’ll have many more adventures and hopefully will keep on posting them for all of us to share! We’re so proud of you Matt! Val, EWW
