One Step Closer to Being Able to Say “I’m with Rolling Stone”…

Applied for a freelance photographer position at RS that was being run through the VRaw myspace site. Got this email yesterday: Not sure what the next steps are. Or how big the shortlist is. Not really expecting to get it, but is nice to anyway. More news when I have it…
