Well, its been a long time since I was here last, and I come bearing sad news. Both newspapers I freelanced for bottomed out and I was let go, and the other steady sports gig I had also went bankrupt. So I went and got a real job...the downside to that being that I won't have time to shoot weddings anymore. Anyway, I got so broke last month I had to sell my whole kit to pay the bills. I guess I should count my blessings though, my new real job is working at a brokerage firm...so in a few months I should be well on my way to a D3! So for the time being I'm a camera-less photographer, which is about the saddest thing I know of. I tried using my old Nikon Coolpix (for the first time in 5 years) as a temporary stand-in, but got so frustrated I just gave it to my girlfriend. Stupid economy. Where's the newspaper industry bailout?
