So you know a few weeks back, when I was being vague and going on and on about Murphy's Law and thinking positive? Well I was waiting to hear back about a really cool job. I really wanted to be positive and just talk it out on the bloggy, but I didn't want to jinx it.
After a month of playing around with my emotions, I finally got a call back. I GOT THE JOB! It's not the biggest job I've had, but this will take my business into other states. The job is for a property management company photographing all of their 28 properties. Most of the properties are in Florida, but I'll also be shooting in Arizona, Texas, Virginia, and LAS VEGAS! We will be driving out to Virginia to start and then meandering south through Florida. Then cruising across Texas and Arizona. Ending back in Las Vegas...the perfect ending. I think I will need to recuperate in Vegas for a while...anyone want to meet up in Vegas for a few days at the end of October?
Anyway, this couldn't have come at a better time. I was going to start selling off blood platelets and put Mario on the corner soon. We need the money in a bad way and I need my business to be moving forward.
I'm so excited I'm buzzing. I'll be shooting for almost three weeks straight. I will have to get some new equipment...two of my camera's must have known I would be getting some good work, they both decided to die a slow death and have recently they've taken a turn for the worse. So, it makes this the perfect time to upgrade equipment.
Of course when it rains it pours. I was going to have Mario come with and assist for me on the shoots. However, he's gotten some good calls to work on some shows. He's testing for one he really likes right now. Even if he doesn't get that job, he'll probably be starting work on one of the others while I'm gone. I'll also have 5 shoots to take care of before I leave in a week and a half...I just have to convince them all to work with my schedule.
I have so much to do in the next week!!! I'll probably be a mess getting everything ready but I'm excited to get out and road trip.
My favorite part...they're cutting a check for me right now. I love it!
