I started with film photography in high school and loved it. I picked up a few side jobs over the years, but it was just for fun. Many years later, I was laid off from a full-time (but not creatively fulfilling) “real” job. That was the kick in the pants I needed to go back to my hobby and turn it into a profession. Thank you, Universe! A short survival job as a temp in a brokerage office gave me the idea to try real estate photography. But I also love photographing food and people. Someday I’ll specialize. But not today.
