Pure luck is purely that... Right place, right time..
Mostly the jobs are set up by our team of reporters (I'm photographing Heather Mills later today, but will be looking around for anything interesting beforehand), but there are plenty of quiet days where you have to chase softer news. I find the softer stuff always makes more creative pictures anyway...
Keep your camera with you and you'll soon stumble on events and situations that are newsworthy and publishable.
Hey Ben I see you used to work for the Bristol Evening Post, I knew a few guys from Production there. Shame they shut the Press down a few weeks ago
