As you can imagine, constantly moving has led to some challenges in my career, as I try to find my "place" in each new location. When I was in Kuwait looking for an Interior Design job, I did some volunteer photography in my free time. I really loved the experience and the finished products. We also were able to travel quite a bit while we were there, so it was fun to practice in cool and interesting places.
Additionally, maintaining my blog over the past 4 years has challenged me to document our life and take more photos.
My experiences over the past year, career-wise, have shed a harsh light on the fact that I don't necessarily want to be doing what I've been doing for the rest of my career and that its time to make a change. I have therefore decided to seize the moment and take step one on the path to becoming a photographer.
I've signed up for photography classes to brush up on my technical skills and am pursuing opportunities to practice, continuing to hone my skills, researching, reading, and building my portfolio.
