Nadia, I wish you all the luck of the world. First of all :-)
I moved to London for one year when I was 21 and I finished my 3 year degree at the University in Spain. It was a bit scary and risky, because it was just one month after the bombings of September 11, but I did it... I arrived to London with nothing else but two enourmous suitcases. No house, no work and no money... But everything went very well for me. In just 5 days I found a very nice house to stay in (property of a wonderful woman who treated me and the other flatmate wonderfully) and also a job. This one didn't torn out to be a very good one and I left it 4 months after, although I gained great experience, friends and had a lot of fun...

Briefly... London is great, and you have plenty of professional options. It depends how much you like or dislike big cities. It is true that London can be very demanding, a bit lonely and if you don't have enough money to survive, really hard to get on. But I spent there one year, and had a wonderful experience.

Manchester is a place I particularly adore.
Not as big as London, great communications (lots of cheap flights to Europe, that will be useful to you for travelling around so many places...), great people, great night atmosphere, and also a considerably large job offer.

If you need anything, more info about London, where to look or anything else, feel free to send me a message!!!!!
And good luck!!!!!

Dear Sam, well I'm glad you deleted those cause they really were inappropiate. There's no excuse but what happened is I was trying to do a satirical thing behaving like a stereotypical super angry father (cause at one point Jullet said something about acting like a Dad) and at some point when I was editing I erased or deleted the beginning were I mention the angry father part as an intro. Obviously with that gone it looked horrible and like I was being crazy serious and totally over the top. Even if it had not been edited by mistake the way it was it still was a bad idea and my apologies to all. Will not try comedy on the site in the future. After i read it I knew this was gonna happen caused it looked just TOTALLY horrible and awful and I felt bad about it.

As far as Nadia goes I would never make fun of a persons looks (nose , weight,whatever) but i was just looking at it from a business POV. I do Travel Photography and we have to be so together and prepared with everything that my thinking was do all you can to help yourself get work. That's the angle of thinking I was coming from. I figure that metal stuff is removable so I didn't feel it was an attack on her looks. If I did hurt her feelings I'm sorry about that.

So, my sincere apologizes to all, Jullet, Windmill, Nadia, Jeff, Sam, and anyone that read it and felt bothered or angry. A real stupid idea of mine that won't be repeated. .....Zoom PS Hope you guys can eventually forgive and forget - sorry.

Slugs have great memories, they just don't get to use them for long because they get squished soon after.

How about we don't turn this into a big prolonged drama? I gave my sincere apology which is probably more than a lot of people would do (but I don't have a problem doing it cause it WAS inappropriate and I'm glad it's gone).... If you read the whole statement I said EVENTUALLY on the forgive and forget situation. It's up to you 2 if you wanna move on and worry about real world problems or stand here and beat a dead horse. I've been doing world travel for decades as a travel photographer and have a lot of good advice to give to people that are just starting out. I just got an E-mail 2 days ago from a guy on here from Canada who wants to do pro photography. I was happy to spend an hour writting out all kinds of tips, contacts, and do/don't for succeeding in the business. That's the kind of stuff I'm basically on here for. That and learning new information about future unfamiliar places I need to go to for Photo work. If my apology doesn't cut it are we gonna have a dule the next time I come to the UK? Boxing match or Fist fight? Come on you 2 , I'm sure you're nice blokes so let's move on. The World Cup is coming up, now THAT'S something to get serious about......... Zoom

EH??? Where did this come from Zoom? I think me and JeffG were genuinely talking about slugs which - if you can believe it - didn't have anything to do with you. And yes, the world cup is something interesting, maybe you could start a thread about it.
