Simon says

Should a budding photographer photo assist? Intern? Have a day job and shoot on his or her own? Work at a newspaper in any capacity? Try to freelance? Align himself or herself with a wire service?

“All of the above,” answers Simon, as there is no one formula for survival. But what Simon stresses as essential is to always work on a personal project, learn from criticism, never give up the copyright to photographs and be persistent. “There is a fine line between persistence and a restraining order.”
