Sometimes if I stop and think about it long enough, it blows my mind that we can just think things into fruition. If you would have told me a year ago that I would be using my own camera to shoot musicians, I would have laughed in disbelief. I'm sure greater things are at work, pulling the strings behind the scenes.
I decided to take that next leap into the new world of unknown by reaching out to PR people for bands coming to local venues. Much like a job hunt, I sent out several emails like they were resumés, thinking I would probably hear very little in return. Much to my very BIG surprise, most of them gave me the go-ahead to shoot photos at their concerts! Not only that, some extended free tickets, and one asked me if I would be willing to take some candids!
I was shocked in disbelief! It was the most amazing news and I have been flying high ever since. With that being said however, I hadn't anticipated the super fast, warped speed increase in work. So, needless to say, it has left me feeling very busy. But, I can't think of any other way I'd want to spend my time.
I can only hope that this leads to newer and even bigger opportunities down the line. I can't wait to see what's in store!!
From my lips to God's ears, Hallelujah! Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
