While my posts here have slowed a bit I assure you I am very very busy. Busy both with photography projects and work. I have been contacted recently to participate in a number of photography projects, which is very exciting. Here’s a short list of what’s going on.
Earlier this month I was contacted by a publishing company who prints the Appomattox, VA phone book. They were seeking permission to use a photo I posted of the Appomattox Battlefield. I granted the permission, the book goes to print in early November. This is the first time someone has asked permission to use my photos on a commercial level. Sometime in the next few months, I’ll be traveling to Ft Myers FL to peddle some photos an art/jewelry show. This is a first for me, and while the profit margin will be slim, I may cover my airfare to spend the weekend with good friends. Also, next weekend I’ll be shooting photographs at a High School reunion to be used on the reunion committees website.
But probably the most significant; I will be starting a project tomorrow AM (was going to start today but it was too cloudy) for a client who has contacted me to produce a book of photographs. It will take a year or more to shoot all of the photographs, and produce the final book. I’ll share the progress as I work through this project. Already this has been a learning experience for me and has changed my approach to photography (for the better). I’ve been refining my photography workflow so I can stay more organized with the photos taken during the project. This a huge step for me into making this hobby a small source of income.
In the midst of all this, I got a new (day) job. In mid-august, I moved from a local passenger transportation company providing commuter busing in Washington DC, to a Northeast regional transportation company (which is part of a larger national network) providing passenger transportation from Washington DC to cities from Charlotte, NC to New England. It’s been a huge change and I’ve been quite busy.
