In October last year I was contacted by 'a researcher' from BBC Scotland, saying they liked some of my work and would I be interested in phtoographing someone locally with a view to the images being used as part of the titles for their new nine o'clock news programme. My first thought was that this was a scam because the email wasn't very well written and let's face it anyone could say they were a researcher for the bbc and slap on a knock=off logo. However, I decided to go ahead and do it because it's not like emtpying my bank account would get them very far and until the point of actually having to give them bank details the risk seemed minimal. The person they asked me to photograph had had dealings with the bbc before and didn't seem to think there was anything dodgy about it so I cracked on. It did take them months to pay me, and then I couldn't really shout about it because the images had to be kept under wraps until they were aired...which seems to have happened last night! So I'm on the telly. Well, I"m not, but two of my photos are which is kind of exciting! Not sure these are the two that I'd have chosen from the shots I sent in but hey ho - not my decision!
