Country Magazine

So...our principal Eric set me up. He came in the last month and said he had a job opportunity for me. Not knowing what to expect (could be ugly, just kidding, Eric been great) he told me of a photo taking job that needed a photographer. I don't for one second think of my self as a photographer. Seriously, seriously it is a total hobby for archiving this last 4 years and for times of total boredom. I would much rather think of my self as something to do with music, than a photographer. I'm totally not creative with music or photographer either. I am consistently jealous of my sister's or student's photos. Way better than mine.

Eric apparently disagrees with my thinking and told this editor lady that I take "amazing" pictures and she emailed me about doing a few photos for a journal that Eric is writing about living in the country. He will journal for a week and I will take a bunch of photos of Eric doing what he does, mushing, hunting, principaling, etc. Should be a lot of fun actually.

I sent the lady some pictures from the last couple of years and she replied that I was hired. Hired, I thought that was funny for some reason. She is even sending me a contract. haha. They will have rights to the photos and everything. Real official. The whole thing is totally a chance type of thing and total thanks to Eric for thinking of me. I appreciate it. Someone this Christmas said this is how careers get started. Well see about that. Would be a fun retirement though. Remeber that's only 16 years away. I better get better at this picture thing.
