Taking Chances

Hopefully, this is the last truck I will ever drive.
Although I do not plan to totally leave the trucking industry, I am making an attempt to get out of the trucks as a driver. Now, along with event photography, I will concentrate on industrial photography. This includes the transportation and energy production industries. I am currently updating my portfolio website, and adding new features.

This has been a bad week for me with my trucking career. No accidents or injuries. Just citations. Therefore, my mvr now looks a little ridiculous. And, after 35 years, I have had enough of living in a truck. Today I quit my job. Yeah, I know what the economy looks like. But, for the sake of sanity, I gotta try something.

So, with a minimum of equipment and not much money, I am about to step out and start soliciting for photographic assignments and clients. Of course, I will also spend a bunch of time trying to find a steady job. But, at least now I may have some time to try to make some money with what I love doing. I will also try to turn my blogs (HKB PhotoBlog and Trucks * Truckers * Trucking) into commercial enterprises. And, if the photography stuff kicks in for me I will forget about finding another job. But, I have to be realistic. This is a risky thing I am doing with the economy like it is. But, I had to do something.
