    Oprah boosts my economy!!!

    I'm not sure whether Oprah will come to Orange when she visits but the announcement has boosted my economy with a job for the Daily Telegraph.
    See
    http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/ent...-1225925051680

    In the Paper version its on Page 13 (17/9/10) for NSW readers.

    Just thought i'd share the timeline for this photo
    Thursday-
    4:30pm - Phone call from picture editor - are you available? - Answer Yes
    4:45 pm - Phone call back from picture editor with details
    5:05 pm - Home to pick up camera gear
    5:25 pm arrive at house - Take about 30 photos - 5 completely different angles and poses
    6:00 pm arrive back home
    Download photos
    Sort crop saturate etc
    6:15 pm Email 5 different photos through to picture desk
    6: 22 pm Receive confirmation
    Friday Photo in paper....
    BTW picture editor said we need by 6:30pm or otherwise we get nervous....

    Jeff, what took you so long?
    Maybe it's the country air?
    Congrats! And don't spend the $20 all in one shop.

    And probably two pubs as well? (Do you still have 6.00pm closing?)
    If it's over $20 count on waiting at least six weeks.

    Too right! That's a legacy Joh Bejelke left us. One good thing though, they use to be $100.
