I was pleasantly surprised to receive this.
When pricing a job for a potential client, and once all the details have been discussed it is important to produce an estimate to give the client. This gives the client an average for the cost of the service they will receive for the product or services required.
A purchase order is an order number for a product or service that is to be carried out, this gives the company (photographer) insurance that even if the client pulls out the photographer will not lose out financially.
The invoice will be issued to the client once the job is completed. This is a bill for the cost of the job, product or service.
I walked in and asked if it was possible to take some photographs around the farm and to document some of the volunteers. They were very pleased and happy that I was interested in their farm. I learnt that not only did this space in the middle of a City provide farm animals for everyone especially children who do not have the chance to play in a countryside environment but it has allotments as well, where residents can have a plot to use or simply work along side other s in a designated area. There is also a huge green house where seeds are sewn. I also found by researching that the organisation help with various social issues because they provide support and the chance for people to help out mucking out the animals and feeding them. There are also special needs groups who support people with learning difficulties, this place is truly amazing and such a tranquil place to spend the day….

I am a mature student, studying BA Hons Photography at the University of the West of England. I am currently producing a documentary style project on Knowle West in Bristol, working with the community.
I am seeking work experience, in order to expand my knowledge and skills in this field of work. I would be delighted to have the opportunity to work voluntary with your paper, shadowing, assisting your photographers or just to observe.
I live in Weston Super Mare and read your paper weekly, so I am familiar with the Mercury, I would be truly grateful if you could give me the opportunity to gain some experience, which is key for me to progress and for my future career opportunities.
.I look forward to hearing from you,
So far I have emailed several photography studios and they all say the same, that they do not take on work experience.
Message: Dear Coralie,
I am a mature student in my second year, studying BA Photography at the University of the West of England.
I have looked through your website and feel inspired by your style of work and creativity. I admire the way you engage with families, newborn babies and children alike.
I have visited your studio, in hope to speak with you regarding work experience with yourself, but unfortunately missed you on several occasions.
Would it be possible to email me regarding this.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I am a mature student, studying photography at the University of the West of England. I have been looking through your website as I am looking for the right studio to hopefully do some work experience at. I realise that you cover many aspects of photography, including animal portraits, which I enjoy. Your website is full of interesting textual information as well as visuals, I would be truly grateful if you would be able to offer me some learning time with yourself at your studio. As I would like to have experience working with clients in the studio environment and not just at the University.
Unfortunately we don’t offer any work experience or placements at the studio. Best of luck with your studies.
