Following the dream to become a published, paid writer this year has led to some incredible learning experiences. Whether reporting a news event here in the Catskills, promoting a non-for-profit event, writing editorials and essays, or, my favorite, photo journalism, I am constantly fulfilled with my work.
Finally, I am doing what I love. Reaping the benefits of involved pitches, copious interviews, and being in the right place at the perfect time.
Working together with editors that are professional and experienced provide me with that much needed extra set of eyes.
Folks that ask me what I do often scoff at my answer:
“I’m a writer, a photographer.”
“What else do you do? You know, to actually make money?” they ask.
THIS is what I do. I write what I see. I ask questions. I take my camera with me everywhere.
And I get paid.
