Work Experience - Fish Griwkowsky

For my first week of Work Experience last fall, I shadowed Fish Griwkowsky.  Although his main focus isn't photography, I learned a great deal from the man.  He was humble about his skill level of photography, but there are a lot of things that school cannot teach you, things that only experience can, and Fish has had his fair share of experience.  Griwkowsky primarily writes and cartoons for SEE Weekly among other magazines and papers and has been published in more than handful of others.  His photography covers everything from nature to events to portraits.

During the week we shot a few portraits of bands (including a 3D attempt of the Whitsundays) and even a portrait of his mother (who was in town for Fish's award of 40 under 40).  Mostly we just talked about the state of the photography industry and how the both of us fit in it.
Clearly I am not a writer and I apologize for the stumbling sentences.  I had a fun week and would like to thank Fish for having me and even arranging photo shoots for us.
