Post subject:  Time Out HK: YSW Main Street, Lamma

An intern was doing research on for this story below. It was written as part of her Time Out HK magazine job application. This nice lady contacted me a few times for info and contacts.
This is definitely a better, more in-depth Lamma story than the extremely superficial, fluffy, touristy stuff you normally see in various media. She tried her very best as a potential paid job is a great motivator these days..

Then the editor, an ex-Lammaite, contacted me independently for some free photos to go along with the story, selected from our extensive Photo of the Day Archive ("freelance budget is basically zero, no payment for any photos"). Before I could get permission from the chosen photographer, they had already found another Lammaite's free Main Street snapshot.

This is a pretty good, glossy, but not free, $18 print magazine, stuffed with advertising, publishing an intern's job-application story, almost full page size, with a free picture. If you're a freelancer, trying to sell any "content" to the traditional media, good luck!

At least, the intern got the job...
