Shutterbug Saturday: Training

Posted on Updated on

My paternal grandfather was a firefighter, my brother-in-law is and my dad nearly was. I grew up going with my grandmother to my hometown’s fire department HQ, bringing lunch for my grandfather. When he retired, he worked dispatch.

As a Drivers License Examiner, I got to give road tests in firetrucks.

I was lucky to catch this. I was walking home from the local market. ~Vic

    Victoria, do you have your own Photography business?

      You mean, like, a paid gig? No. It’s just me & my phone. These days, it is nearly impossible to make a living as a legit photographer. Everyone has a camera phone and, possibly, image altering software.

      I seriously considered a job in photography when I was in college but, was told programming was the future.

        Gotcha. I’ve heard that people can get paid to be a wedding photographer.

          They can. There is a need for wedding, party & family portraits. But, OH, the cost of the equipment for that. Then, there is the problem of people not wanting to pay for a professional and preferring candid phone shots.

          It is usually well-to-do families that want professionals so, narrow market.
