My name was given to someone with the Blue Ridge National Heritage by a friend, Elly. Seems they want some shots of the foliage, festivals and fall colors and activities in these mountains.
I met Elly last May when I contacted her about doing some shooting for the Shindig on The Green. It was fun shooting the Shindig and I think I was able to get some good shots. If you click here, you can see some of the photographs. I hope you like them.
I won’t go into the financial details of my shooting on the Shindig, suffice it to say, I just tried to do the right thing.
Elly — like I said — passed my name on to the folks at the Blue Ridge National Heritage and that resulted in my getting a gig to do some shooting for them — at an amount that will put a biscuit on the table. And not just a biscuit, I can get a biscuit with sausage if I want.
Just wanted to share this with you. I’m kinda pumped. The money will be good, but I’m more pumped that someone at the Federal level has seen my work, compared it to other photographers and felt that mine stood out.
But I’m also pumped that a lesson that my ol’ man always told me has proven true again in my life. Try to do the right thing, cast your bread on the waters and it’ll all work out in the end.
So thanks for being a reader of this lil’ ol’ blog and thanks for being my cheerleader. The emails I get form folks that read this is heart warming for this grizzeled ol’ boy.
Now, where did I put that damn cup of coffee.
