Welcome to the next page. This is the point where I feel like I'm actually moved in to the area. The part where I feel like I can start investing my time and emotional energy in getting to meet people, in going out and doing things and not feeling like I just showed up in the middle of the party.

It's also the point where I feel like, on the one hand even though I don't have any bookings for weddings or portrait sessions or anything like that, on the other hand I feel like I've done all of the things that I should have and that a lot of the seeds that I've sown over the last couple of months are getting ready to sprout. It's not something that I can break down logically, but it's something that I feel is coming. So I guess take that for what it's worth.

I've been working with two local photographers on producing a Merrimack Valley arts and entertainment magazine called Human Good. We're going to cover writing, stage (music, theatre and live performance), Food, Visual Art, Photography and a DIY section covering such topics as how to be a drag queen. The tone of the magazine is somewhere between McSweeney's and The Onion where I am the McSweeney's trying to balance out all of the Onion ideas.

It's interesting being here at the beginning of a publication and taking a leading role as the managing editor after the last 3.5 years of being a reporter and photographer, or peon depending on how you see things. There is a huge need for organization and I've got the experience to do it the right way as well as reign in a lot of the creative contributors that are deadline challenged. I like to think it's a sign that I've matured over the years as I haven't yelled at anyone out of frustration yet.

I have a feeling I'll see a few more photo gigs soon and, if nothing else, the weather is warming up.

I see you’re beginning to play with reversal films now. You should grab some in 120; Velvia is pretty amazing in medium format.
TheLong Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010
I have been. In fact there are a few shots in my gallery. Primarily Velvia 50 in 120.
