Cat O' Nine Tails

I haven't worked for a long time. Let's see, it's been about two or three years. I've done the odd job here and there, but none of it's really amounted to much. The situation is that I have a "problem with authority." I know, I know, who doesn't? Well, apparently, lots of people. For instance, the Bread Winner. She actually likes authority. Go figure.

Now, the obvious solution for a person with a "problem with authority" is to be the big boss. No authority over you, no problem, eh? Only, the way one usually becomes the big boss is to work one's way up the ladder, i.e. through LOTS of authority. A conundrum, wouldn't you say? Solution number two is some sort of solo operation. No one below you, yes, but more importantly, no one above you. The problem with this is that it's really hard to get an individual business going. But I'm trying. In my half-assed way.

Photography. Something I've done for the past ten years. Now it's time to make some money. But first, I'm dedicating my summer to building a portfolio, i.e. working for free. And tonight, I've got my first non-paying gig lined up. An actor/model GUY. He's been an extra in about a million things. Never spoken on film. But he's supposed to be a jogger in Spiderman 2, and that's something. He wants new headshots, and for some reason, he has faith in me based on some pictures I have up on my website. But I'm feeling tense about it. The pressure is on. Tonight is the night. I will take pictures and hope they don't suck.
