It's not easy being me


I say that when things are going good and everyone wishes they were in my shoes. I started a new job a month ago and for the first couple of weeks I thought I had made a huge mistake. My previous job was as a manager and I had been at the place for 6 years so I was the big fish in the little pond. Now, I've taken a job with a large company and it's back to being low man on the totem pole. No problem right, b/c I was doing what I've set out to do- become a professional photographer. Well, things weren't as good as I thought they would be, until the other night.
My manager and I went to several local modeling agencies looking for someone to fill an opening we had. He did the talking and I took the pictures. Well, at one agency the owner liked us so much that she invited us both to dinner with her and her family (which was a little awkward) at an upscale restaurant. We happily obliged and were treated to a three course meal with a great group of people while everyone else was slaving away at the office. As the new guy, everyone at the office would pitch a fit if they heard what had happened, so my manager and I kept it to ourselves. I guess that's what happens when you bring in a guy with more experience than those around you.
So, photographing models during the day and being wined and dined at night. It's good to be the king.
