Going back to school?

It's been over half a decade, since I had anything to do with some sort of school.

After highschool I had enough with just sitting on my fat ass and listen to stuff, that I couldn't relate to. Back then I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life and all it took for me to find out, was a massive riot in Copenhagen in 2007.
I was in the middle of all that burning blockades and teargas and when I saw those picures from the riots, I instantly knew what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to be a photographer.

A'lot of things have happened since then and I'm been going solo, for a very long time and I definetly feel, that this is it, it is time for me to go back to school. So I applied for Denmark's Media- & journalist school here in Copenhagen, where they have the perfect class for me called: Photography and communication.

But it's not all that simple, you have to go through some tests, before you can sign up. I heard that there is about 900 attendants, where only 20 of those will be picked.

First you have to go through a pre-test and if you make it through that one, another test and an interview awaits you. The deadline was today the 17th of April and I just uploaded my assignment last night. 5 o'clock this morning to be exact.

The subject for the pre-test was Passion, so I had to come up with something that did. The three pictures either had to be connected or be independent from each other. I chosed the first one.

Actually I first started on the assignment yesterday and I'm all tired and stressed out today, but I'm glad I made it. Go to the bottom and you'll see the three pics that I send in together with a second part of the assignment(Not shown).

One of my long time buddies is a pro MMA fighter and I knew how much of his time, sweat, blood and pain he puts into his training. So the subject was right there in front of me. I was suppose to shoot him last saturday, but he got injured and wasn't ready until yesterday. I was a bit stressed out that we had to do it the day before the deadline. So yesterday was a bit too much, but it was good to see him again and all in all, I made the deadline:-)
