Editor’s note: This is part of a series highlighting member stories on SkillPages. Sam McFarlane is a free runner from Scotland, he tells us how he used SkillPages to find photographers.
A friend recommended I join SkillPages after seeing the benefits himself. As a gymnast, free runner and all-round sports enthusiast, SkillPages is the ideal way of showcasing my variety of skills. I’ve been practising free running for seven years and involved in a free running company called Axis Freerun for the last three years. I recently decided I wanted some high quality images to increase my profile in the sport.
The next step was posting an opportunity for free on SkillPages searching for a sports photographer in Glasgow. After a few weeks I had lots of replies and was able to set up numerous meetings. Since then I have been working with one photographer in particular on a weekly basis. It has worked out great for me, I couldn’t be happier with the new action shots for myself and for the company. Through working with Barry I have since had the confidence to send my pictures to various parkour and free running magazines.
I would recommend SkillPages to anyone, I love how easy it is to set up your profile and look for job opportunities.
