Walked to school 10 miles, every day, uphill both ways, in the snow?

With no shoes I bet.


Did you lose Digital Photo Professional (DPP)? Get it here (external link). Cursing at your worse-than-a-map reflector? Check out this vid! (external link)

My total time in the Union was 32 years of good service.

My father unfortunately made up his mind for me when I was in the 3rd grade; Every weekend - working on a job. Every vacation working on a job. My whole childhood was spent working on a job (for dad)

No I didn't walk to work.. or any other of the presumptions you typed out. I should have known better to say anything so controversial.

So... I bet you are WRONG !!

"I'm passionate about photography. I got my first camera when I was a fetus" AND HOW DID THEY HAND THAT TO YOU ??

At one time that was also true in law enforcement, but it has now been accepted. Perhaps that applied to some construction projects in your area but I know that here in the Midwest digital is widely used.

I've been working with one of the construction managers photographing the largest bridge project in Ohio and we both use digital:

I do agree that construction sites can make fascinating photography, but be careful about work rules. I am not allowed on site without a hard hat, glasses, safety vest, and accompanied supervision by an employee.

I don't wan't to sound too ignorant, but thinking of the construction work you are doing is that a commission job or are you covering it for your own project. I'm just thinking how I can make some more money from photography. I've seen your blog very interesting. :)

Thanks for checking out my blog - regarding the construction job, I'm covering that for my own portfolio but the project manager is a paid employee of the company. She writes their PR and also documents the progress.

Rule #1. Always let your customers purchase your new equipment for you.
During the late 70's. I took one picture of a crane on nuclear power plant @ Hanford Washingtion WPPSS. The name of that famous crane was Big Blue built by Lampson. this crane was 3 city blocks long. It could pick up 1000 tons and 'walk' anyplace with the load. Two million pounds of huge concrete slabs for counter weights. I took one photograph. Sold copies on the job site for 3 bux each. (Home processed 8x10 color). I went to work with 100 copies every day - they were all sold out by morning coffee break. This went on daily for 3 1/2 months. That one photograph made over $12,000.

If you "follow" the crowd. You will more than likely accomplish the exact same results. If you learn how to think "different" there is a whole world of possibilities that exist for you to turn your hobby or what ever you want to call it into a very good paying JOB!

Terrific earnings Majik - shows some great entrepeneurial hard work.... you made the most of a nice job situation. Had you been hired by the construction company to be the official project photographer?

Heck no!! I had 5 people help me - sneak my Mamiya RB67 onto the job site. Each person carried one portion of the camera in their metal lunch box.

I was the Kodak Kid !! I painted a huge gang box, one end of it all nice for Kodaks' 100th anniversary. I was creating crew portraits. The supervisors all looked the other way. Because I gave them all photos for free.

I was a foreman for the electricians maintenance crew.

Crane operator lifted me 400 feet into the air to grab a shot of the inside of the reactor as it was being built.

I sure wish I had some of those old images, but alas, I've moved around way too much and every time I move we always loose something.

As I said before; and I am going to say this again. If you follow the crowd, you will more than likely experience the same results.

Learn how to practice (thinking different). DO NOT BE AFRAID; to give something away for free. Many times that simple act has led to very well paying JOBS!!

Suddenly, THIS enters my mind....

Thanks for that info, I like the idea of covering projects for the historical value as well, the images may mean alot more to people in the future then they do at the time.:)

You're very welcome garypr :D - not only that, but it gets your work out there, in the public eye, on the web, people see you are a working photog and word gets around. It helps you network visually, socially, and in the working world. Very often one thing leads to another and that's how job leads are found or made.

He, yeah, I use this screen name all over the place, but I generally don't take responsibility for the transgressions of my alternate personalities.

Digital images are not allowed in construction photography to document progress reports. That used to be the norm on all projects I have worked on. That is the only instance I know of where film has to be used.

Just what year was that in?! :D Might be one company's or one superintendent's choice only.

I asked a local mid-level shooter who apparently mostly abandoned their photo career if they would like to shoot together sometime and got offered a rate for lessons...
