This is just one of those evening’s where I want to scurry away and play video games, but no!, I find myself here updating my site. It’s an ample moment; Mariah, Caira, and pretty much everyone else have gone up to [[Mount Charleston, Nevada|Mount Charleston]], to set up camp for the weekend. I have the house to myself, my feet are up, and I have the Itch. So I type.
On the whole I had a horrible day. I’m not a person to deride my employer in public, but I will say here and now that working for a family member and living in the same house with them doesn’t really make for an ideal situation. With a little luck I will land another permanent job soon – I’ve put my resume and portfolio out and about as much as I can for most of the retail, photographic, and warehousing jobs that I can find.
Please for the love of god someone hire me!
Moving on, I’ve gotten much better in the use of a flashgun, I have my first freelance work in a while lined up for Saturday night (birthday party in a club), and my business cards shipped this morning.
I hope a good job shooting, word of mouth, and business cards to hand out will all spur on more photographic engagments for me. Las Vegas is honestly an extremely cut-throat and supersaturated place for a photographer. Everyone wants to be here and everyone wants to make it. Fie.
Caira….Caira is absolutely insane. Starkers. Mad. Lunatiked. Batshit crazy, to steal words from Mariah’s mouth. I’ve a few really adorable photos of her on the camera from last night, but my most recent photos online are from my backlog of photos of the Mariah, the twins, and the cats, all which are endearingly cute:
There, one of each. For the rest of everything, go look at my Flickr page.
