I first started taking photography classes with Jim Block in Enfield, NH because I was nervous about perhaps having to take photos while on assignment. That was a few years ago and since then I have been showing and selling my work, making photo collages and having so much fun. A friend once told me that some anxiety can be good for you, it helps motivate you and I have found that to be true. I'm also excited to see the pugs and help in this endeavor. My friend Joan is coming along for moral support. When you start down a road you never know where it might lead and what you see as obstacles sometimes are the very building blocks of creativity.
I've been asked by Green Mountain Pug Rescue to come photograph a transport of pugs coming into Vermont tonight. They are getting 12 in at this location and another three in at Troy and since it is such a big group they want individual shots and to get photos up as soon as possible in order to find homes for them.
Green Mountain Pug Rescue is a wonderful organization and very efficient, so I'm sure they will have everything under control, but a friend already wrote me on Facebook that she pictures me with a catcher's mask and mitt and I hope that won't be the case. I'm still a little nervous when it comes to photographing on assignment. I know when its for a show or my own creative projects I can capture a picture that I can use, but I'm still not confident in getting the right shot everytime that I feel I need to do this type of work. Still, I'm eager to grow and this sounds like an opportunity to do so.
