Me in 2009 at 287 pounds.
Someday I will return to Las Vegas, hopefully, to live, but after experiencing what goes on in that city during a panic like the Plandemic caused I think I am better off in a red state. I plan to do basically the same kind of photography in Oklahoma and the surrounding states as I was doing in Nevada, but I also plan to do more industrial work, like trucking photography. And, of course, I hope to start playing my music again. And, I would like to get back to driving a truck to make a living.
Me today at about 220 pounds.
I am feeling better about myself than I was just a couple of days ago when I still had no idea about what to do about my financial situation. You may think I am nuts, but by mid-October, I will be on the road to boondock as a way of life. And, I still need to make a trip to Bullhead City, Arizona to get my belongings that are in storage out there. I have plans and dreams. It is time for me to do something with my plans. It is time for me to chase my dreams. I am again putting a hold on my GoFundMe site, at least until another incident puts me deeper into the crapper. I am putting all of my troubles in God's hands. He is a lot better at managing my life than I am. And, yes, I hope to be making a living driving a truck by October.
Me at 18 and 157 pounds.

The Adobe Stock agency is a Microstock agency. The pay is low per image sold or leased. I plan to now try to start posting to a Premium stock agency where the pay is much higher, but the acceptance requirements are much more stringent. I believe my photography belongs on a Premium Stock site. My future transportation and travel will be posted on the Premium Stock site.
Microstock agencies accept amateur photos and have a lower entry barrier. While the price they pay per image is quite low, it’s important to notice that most buyers are working with these platforms. Examples of microstock agencies include iStock, Dreamstime, and Adobe Stock.
Premium stock agencies demand higher qualifications and therefore it’s not as easy to sell your images from there. However, the payout for the photos is usually much higher than microstock. One of the most popular premium stock agencies is Getty Images.
