After I left the teaching profession in 2016, I began working for myself as a photographer. This is something I’d always wanted to do, but for a variety of
reasons excuses, I didn’t do it. In 2016, I finally took the plunge and opened Sharp Photography. I loved being a full-time photographer! It was a lot of work, but it didn’t feel like work because I enjoyed it so much.
For reasons I won’t go into here, I took a side tour through the world of real estate loan signings in 2019. I liked the work, but there’s nothing creative about it in the slightest. I was able to meet a lot of people (and their dogs) and that’s fun, but again: not creative. And it was work. While I can still do the loan signings as they pop up, I’m making a proactive move back to fulltime photography.
I’m happiest when I can be the kind of person who can document what she sees and when those documents bring value to others.
