Back to the West
As you may or may not have noticed, there hasn’t been too much activity on my account for some time. I’ve uploaded 1 photo since May. This photo counts as my quickest sale. It was approved on July 7 and sold on July 10.
Anyway, the reason for such little activity is my return to the US. I’ve been living in Japan for nearly 3 years now, teaching English as part of the JET Program in junior high school and elementary schools. In about a month, I will return to my home, New Orleans. It’s been a very busy time lately preparing for the move. Recent activities include spending time with my baby daughter, getting a visa for my wife who is Japanese, shipping boxes, teaching English, and revising a screenplay, as well as too many more. When I return to the US, I’ll return to my previous work which was movie and freelance photography. Before coming to Japan, I was working on movies and doing freelance photography in between. In the meantime, I’ve also been writing and developing my own screenplays.
So, I haven’t had too much time for processing and uploading photos. However, I have taken many, including a trip to Tokyo in April, and several from the Japanese country side. During the last month I’m here, I should be able to shoot many more. When I return to the US and set up some work space, I’ll get to processing those, as well as revising my bio/artistic statement. I’ll also be shooting many of my native New Orleans and southern Louisiana. Perhaps I’ll even get a chance to shoot a fishing trip with my dad.
In other news, I was able to partially see the solar eclipse the other day. It was a great experience, watching it with my students and fellow teachers. However, I didn’t get good shots of it because I wasn’t well enough prepared and it was a very cloudy day. Did any one else catch it?
Until I get some time, thanks, God bless, and as we often say in New Orleans, take it easy.
