Yes, it does happen - like the other day where Carine, the pr rep (amongst other things) for Versant Sud, a Brussels based publishing house that I'm working with asks me oh-so-nicely if I could take some photos of a book launch she was organising.
Then it's the knee-jerk cringe reaction just as every time I'm asked to do this kind of reportage (je suis un artiste vous savez!)Or is it that I'm just scared of actually working?!!
It was an interesting experience. Some people asked me if I could send them copies of their photo- I took these photos so that I wouldn't forget who they were.
