Iraq Assignment

heya, who’s on deck in Iraq?
there’s an assignment that needs to get sorted fast — ie. today.
contact me by email/phone. but this needs be someone who’s not locked down by an agency already.

This wouldn’t happen to be a corporate kind off assignment by any chance?

think it was a portrait, but it was a lot of money, even for iraq, so maybe.

turns out I could’ve gone to iraq for a certain agency. was in the process of getting my paperwork sorted, thinking everything was settled. and then they broke off communication. weird.

I think this publication/agency needed someone already inside.

good copy, homeboy.

just so you know, there’s almost a thousand people checking in on the site, so if you don’t want all this info going public, email direct, this line is NOT secure.

I’m waiting on a go, got the chefs knives and the spice rack locked and loaded. in the meantime, I heard there’s a new veggie burger MRE. no joke – even the marines said it was great.

Newsweek just ran the story from our embed with 3/6 in afghanistan this week. dont remember if there’s a PX in Mosul.

khuda hafez, see ya soon, inshallah.

PS. Sarah S is looking for a contact with some military photojournalists — if you’re tight with any, give her a shout.

Re: editing posts.
In case it’ll help: I’ve found that we can edit our own postings. So if you want to change/delete info you’d previously posted, you can. LS.com is great.

(You probably knew this already.)

Pat,

If you are talking about the certain agency that I think you are (I heard from them as well), forget it- its a bunch of bullshit…trust me.
