My Portfolio

For a brief moment in my blog titled The Price of Being Single and Independent, I slightly touched upon being laid off and being in a career transition. I was laid off four years ago. While I continued to try to find work in my previous field, I started to think about what I want to do. Do I really want to work hard for money while feeling unhappy and unsatisfied? I mean… I’m not that old. I did spend thirteen years at the one job, not twenty like some of the others who were laid off along with me. I took a publishing course and realized I was competing against mostly English major students in class. Maybe I should leave these jobs to them knowing they’d probably be better at it. From then on, I just picked up a camera and started photographing. At first taking hundreds of photos trying to figure out the settings and seeing how it looks. I did take classes as well as some workshops. Eventually, I ended up interning at Bell in their PMP program as a photographer. Honestly, I know my portfolio wasn’t strong back then. I learned a lot from them and have now come out with a portfolio. I am trying to get a website together. In the meantime, here is some of my work on Flickr.
