Plays, Portraits, Pools, Kids, Trees...
I woke up nice an early and was to school by around 9:30AM. Started my day with a portrait shoot followed up by a tree removal type deal. Came back to the office and edited them and did some other editing and scanning, etc.
I got dumped with some other assignments, so I passed one to another shooter. Than I went to do a restaurant shoot, where I ended up having some choice words to an arrogant, snooty Towson mom who thought it didn’t matter that she slammed her huge SUV door on my brand new car.
Came back and before I could finish eating my free wings I had to scoot over to Burdick to shoot kids swimming. Then I trekked back to the office, again, for maybe 5 minutes, only to run and shoot the (above) play, Urine Town.
I was looking at another local shooters page and I thought what he said was appropriate for today. “Attention all shooters: Remember, your job is fun! I think we get so bogged down sometimes with too many assignments or a last minute assignment when we're ready to call it a night. But wow. We still get paid for this.” – [Chris Ammann], The Examiner.
Maybe the payment thing isn’t huge with The Towerlight,but I’d take it any day. The experience I am getting with real world assignments is great. Way better than shooting for some freelance company who wants to pay me pennies on the dollar to shoot for hours only to turn around and make big bucks on each image they sell.
Well, the semester is almost over, and although these days are long, I love shooting and I’ll miss the TL for the month we have break. I however won’t miss class.
I really need to order my lap top… I need to run, time to finish some homework.
