one very tired Photo-graph-er here... I've had a 5 week training period with Olan Mills... and this week I 'graduated' when the trainer I'd been working with had a family emergency just as we were setting up at a church on Thursday. He stayed long enough to get things 'set'... then skedaddled. I 'took over' and finished the shoot solo that day and the next. (earning my first 'real' pay vs training pay, including commission on the two days' sales. And I also earned an 'attaboy' for helping out (had I not gone 'solo' they'd have had to reschedule the church)
Today I helped out at a Pastor's convention and Tuesday I start my own first full schedule. Everything is going well, I'm just really bushed it's been a really Busy month... ending up with a trip back to NY for the holiday weekend.
I'm going to the Borg tomorrow, going to pick up some supplies and start stripping wallpaper in the living room.
