    A new Career?

    As Iíve mentioned before Iíve had three surgeries on my left ankle this past year and a half and have to change careers from a plumber to a ? Iíve always wanted to get into photography because I love to shoot pics as well as guns. I may have a good opportunity now. Iíve been asked to shoot team photoís and individual photos for a gymnastics team. This is about 100 kids. Iíve also been asked to shoot a friend and her sisters for their family photo.

    Iím hoping to continue along this line. Photographers generally donít make a whole lot of money but itís better than what Iím making now... nothing. I would also have a job I love and not have to worry about having my face over a toilet full of crap trying to clear it.

    Wish me luck.

    Makes sence to me. Nothing like doing something you like, and getting paid for it. I say go for it.

    I do, believe me! Been there am there, no one wants an old pilot, even for the most basic jobs (fast food not included).

    There is nothing quite like getting paid to do a job you love. Go for it. Few people have the opportunity.

    Do what you love, the money will follow.

    Go for it. I do the things I do because I enjoy them, not for the money. I could make a lot more money but that would take time away from the family and I will not give that up.

    Maximos got it right . Do what you like, and don't forget the family.

    I've been trying to get into that myself. I almost had my first family shoot gig, but it sort of fell through. I wish you all the luck in the world with it, man!
