I am sure there are a lot of people out there who would think that the prospects of losing their day job would be the worst thing that could happen in the world.  I did too . . . until just recently.  Oh, it would definitely lead to financial devastation for me to lose my “day” job as a medical transcriptionist.  But I’ve seen signs that it’s not going to last forever and instead of waiting for the other so-called shoe to drop, I’ve decided there’s no time like the present to make a career change.  I have spent 2010 preparing for this:  Going back to school, exhibiting publicly, reading and learning, and most importantly shooting!  

I am a bit of a realist and I know this will take work and a lot of it and, more importantly, I know it will not happen overnight.  It will take everything I have learned up until this point and a lot that I have yet to learn.  It will take a whole lot of creativity, self-direction, and determination . . . something I have an abundant supply of . . . oh, and maybe a partner.  Linda, if you are reading this (and this goes for all you “wannabe” photographers out there), I am ready to drop the “wannabe attitude” . . . are you?

One thought on “Ah-ha!

  1. Good luck Maria, and kudos on the courage. I too am anticipating the obsolescence of my current job withing the next ten years and making preparation now. I’m also considering taking up photography and coupling it with writing.
