Is there a deadline for this? Have you found someone yet Sky? If not, I'll polish my stuff tonight and send 'em in.

Always send it in, no matter what. One never knows what other positions might be available in the future.

There is no deadline. If I find 10 people, great!

Believe it or not, I use a 4 (or more) year old Canon S2IS for all my shots. A great camera isn't necessary; it's all about the lighting. I can take shots similar to those with a reasonably good pocket camera.

Honestly guys, if you think you have the chops for this or any position, don't let photography skills get in the way. There are ALWAYS ways around that.

If you are using an older Canon, check out the CHDK as it will allow you to shoot in RAW format giving you a little more power on the editing side.

While there are some relatively "advanced" lightbox setups around (or not so advanced, but still costly), getting the white out effect can be as simple as getting some large pieces of poster board, fashioning it so it has a sloping curve, borrowing a few lamps with similar wattage/brightness bulbs, and adjust the lighting levels in photoshop.

That's at least a good place to start. Hell, from what it sounds like, SKY is saying feel free to take photos on the kitchen counter, but just show you know how to use a camera and can use photos to help illustrate talking points, rather than worrying about the background. Background is simply a matter of products & tools.

Writing and presentation is key.

Okay. I'll be honest that was the same stumbling block for me. I have a 5 year old Camera that wasn't giving me the optimal lighting effect. I'll try it again.

Writing style is fine on that effect. I'll just take some glamour shots and do the best I can then.

Cool.
