Last week was a whirl wind. A letter was sent out, not expecting any reply - then, in the space of two days I'd had my first newspaper interview and photo shoot. This week's photos are a record of the interview, including behind the scenes.
On the day: I usually prefer to be behind the camera (it's one of the reasons I took up photography at school). So I snapped this picture while our chirpy photographer, Matt, was busy setting up a shot and keeping us all relaxed.
He liked it so much, he asked for a copy for his scrapbook.
