I’m going to copy paste exactly what I wrote at that time
“very often happens that people write to me (young photographers, aspiring photographers, curious people, assistants…) and send me photographs, websites and so on asking me the same things: an opinion on the photographs, to allow them to come here in the studio, to have a chance to work with me, to clean the toilet for free, to carry my suitcases on my trips …..
I try to answer to everybody, sometimes i manage sometimes I don’t, it depends on the workload at that moment. I try to answer because i think it is right to help who is starting out, and it feels like yesterday when i was knocking on the doors of professional photographers: still now in my evening thoughts I thanks those who encouraged me and curse those who didn’t.
the real problem is that I really can’t answer and especially see everyone who writes to me. so I came up with this: the benedusi competition. send me an e-mail with your work here concorso AT benedusi.it and I will select a winner who will win:
-his photograph published here on my blog
-a full day on set with me, without even having to clean the toilet.
obviously there is no theme, you can send any type of photography. ok? come along….”
I copied and pasted what I wrote two years ago for a simple reason: who better than me can write what I think?!?!
So: today the benedusi competition number two begins. You have more or less a month to send in your work.
