Not much photography right now for me. I have a huge professional certification test coming up in about a week and then I get really deep into the preparation for the holidays. I'm hoping if all works out well to be up in San Angelo before Christmas to partake in a family tradition and maybe get an on-scene look at the bird blind at San Angelo State Park to see if progress has been made towards rehabilitating it.
I stumbled upon an blog posting by Russell Graves,
a true steward of the land and working nature photographer here in
Texas. Mr. Graves does not blog a lot, but when he does there often
nuggets of pure photographic gold contained within them.
The blog post I stumbled upon spoke to the unglamorous nature of what it takes to make images when you are on assignment for a magazine. Words of wisdom for those considering moving their hobby and their passion into the day-to-day job.
I also have a lead on yet another blind, this time more towards the gulf coast. That may be the next post to the blog.
