What is your current profession in life?

Whether you're in school, an aspiring makeup artist, an edgy hairstylist, a stay-at-home-super mom, the 9-5 desk junky, runnning around in your scrubs, or ya just don't know yet...what is your current occupation in life? *If you list school, please share what degree you're working toward* Everybody feel free to list pointers and opinions. This isn't a thread about who is better, what is better, and how it is better. This is about what differences we are making in life Smiley Happy

 

 

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Recently received Masters in Public health. I also just received my certification in public health I am currently studying for the Registered Environmental Health Sanitarian Exam. I was in the Army before my Masters as a medical service officer. I am not sure if I want to return to the military or work for the government but God has blessed me to be in a career field that I really love.

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Wow, I have to say I'm really impressed!  I think a lot of people struggle to find something that they're passionate about, and it looks like you've definitely found your calling.  Congratulations on your recent degree/certification too.

Well since we've moved to Idaho it's been very hard to get a job that isn't some odd miles away (we live in a small town outside of boise) with only one car so I don't have one but I do photography as a hobby. I would love to say it's a job but no one wants to pay me haha Boise is a college town so most "models" that I work with say they don't have money. It's extremely annoying having so many ideas for photoshoots but not being able to afford the props for it and if I was not being able to get my money back on it. Oh well but I love it anyways.

Why Boise? Why?!  I guess the only thing north is SEL, Boise is interesting though, there's a little coffee shop I like downtowright at does mochas with dilettante chocolate, it's delicious! I hear you on job hunting in Idaho though, not much opportunity for careers that allow you to advance :/

Re: What is your current profession in life?

My husband is in the Airforce and was stationed here so I didn't really have a choice. All my friends wondered why I was moving there too haha. 

Re: What is your current profession in life?

I completely and most utterly agree with you on the photography hobby/job. I come from a small town as well outside of New Orleans (45 minute drive). It's tough, and I realized that small towns in America aren't really meant for this coming of age society unless you're in agriculture. I love it so much how you put quotations around the word "models". Haha models aren't models unless they get paid (period). I don't care what people say, when a client comes to me and says they are a model, ok I'm expecting to get some amount of fortune for my work or an exchange/trade off. 

 

Back in 2006 when I didn't have a full-time job (aka broke as photographer) I went to thrift stores, yard sales, and flea markets for props. It worked out, and met some connections along the way. I'm always up for crazy photography shoots involving explicit forms though, its just getting the right kinda person willing to be in my shoots. Haha 

 

I really hope you find some connections maybe even through networking. I see the younger me in your post and I only wish the best for you Smiley Happy

Re: What is your current profession in life?

Yeah my first job was at Sears Portrait studio back in 2004 ( got it after having my senior portraits taken) then when I got married and moved down to Virginia I worked at Glamour Shots until about 2006 when the store was relocating. I liked working at the studios but it wasn't the type of photography I loved so I bought a camera and started my own around the fall of 2006 as well. 

 

 In Virginia I had alot of connections and great girls to work with that most were willing to pay me if not provided all the props for the shoot. But since moving I only have a few girls like that, ones I know that I will get wonderful images out of even if it's for a trade or free. I'm just so tired of new "models" messaging me all the time saying "I love your work, your amazing and would love to work with you...for trade" and then most of their images are either so so or phone shots (I hate photo shots) It's like really I don't understand at all. 

 

   Yes the thrift stores and stuff are a great idea and I really need to force myself to go up to boise more and check them out. ^_^

Re: What is your current profession in life?

I am currently a Medical Assistant at a Dermatology office.  I love every aspect of my job from meeting new people to bandaging them up after surgery.  I feel like I make patients' days easier for them to get through, especially after they've had Mohs surgery (skin cancer surgery that can last anywhere from 2 to 12 hours depending on what's going on.)  I have many other aspirations and goals to fulfill within my life, but I am very glad I chose the medical field.
