I talked about quitting my marketing job to pursue photography and filmmaking, in the way that you talk about things you believe will never happen.
This will not work...I am not good enough...Marketing is my escape goat from pursing my passions...Spanish Nutella, IPA and wine is very important to me. - All things I repeated, while continuing work I didn't care about.
I worked for a Spanish fashion company, in the marketing department. I took hundreds of photos basically for free, while barely breaking even. And I did it all in a grand effort to preserve the peripatetic lifestyle we'd chosen...for rock climbing.
Today roughly marks a 7 month anniversary from quitting a career path that was killing my soul. I realize the only people who celebrate such arbitrary benchmarks, are puppy-love-struck tweens going steady.
The past 7 months have been an overwhelming reminder of a certain positive affirmation. The one third grade teachers repeat to underwhelming classrooms of bratty children. Anything is possible, if you put your mind to it.
Alright, fine. So it's working so far. I haven't failed miserably, and I feel fulfilled by what I do for work, for the first time. Ever.
I'm inspired by my peers. Especially the ones who've helped dismantle the metaphysical daisy chain from my work flow. I'm not wildly successful, and every project pitch is still a challenge. But it's because of you that I have the confidence to even try this
Matt, Mikey, Colette, and the Bens to name a few.
As for right now. We're exploring the PNW sport climbing, and preparing ourselves for the next stop. In August I'll be in the New River Gorge to shoot a deep water solo comp at Summersville Lake, and then we're headed back to Europe until 2017.
