Ljubljana in Le Monde / Text by Brina Svit, photo by Borut Peterlin
Last week I was assigned by Le Monde or it’s Saturday’s supplement M le magazine du Monde, to illustrate a text on Ljubljana by Brina Svit. It is my first publication in Le Monde and I’m super excited about it. Not only because of Le Monde, but also because I’m illustrating text of Brina Svit, the famous Slovenian writer.
One more thing… I’m investing quite a lot of resources and time in my on-line presence and yes Jean-Christophe, I am extraverted, but that’s not the point… What do I want to say is, that I’ve studied photography abroad (CZ, I, UK) and although I live in Dolenjske Toplice, Slovenia, I still consider myself a part of European photography scene, even though I’m far from it’s frontiers and even further away from it’s centers. So when I get assigned from abroad I know a client stumble upon my work because of my portfolio site, my flickr account, my behance network, my facebook activity, my blog…
But to be stumbled upon is one thing, to get assigned is another. I bought my site at aphotofolio and now I do have more success with assignments as well. On the end of the day it’s a sign that it might be worth to spend some time for on-line promotion. Not to mention that my extraverted side is indulged (indulged – I like that word) and happy as a radio.
Last but not least, few days ago I received a magazine Scania World, for which I was assigned via Appelberg agency.
Rock and Roll!!!
