43 Year old Virgin....begins

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

This is the virgin post to my brand new blog. I have decided to brand myself a "virgin" not because I want to attract  adult content, but  because I am entering into the photography industry anew after a 6 year hiatus. I have to qualify the "virgin" with my age: 43 to impress upon you that I am not a virgin of life. I am fresh, but not a self-impressed 25 year old with leather pants and a nose ring (not that there is anything wrong with that). Nor am I really a virgin of the industry. I was deeply immersed in the industry six years ago as studio manager and producer for Dixonfilm.

But then I got an offer I could not refuse:  to be the head producer in the merger between the Buchman- Hudspiths!  I now have three children ages 6, 5, and 3 (I like to keep them close), a lot of laundry, dishes, dog hair on my clothes,  and  few more wrinkles.  I know that I could have kept a toe in the waters (I did to an extent: stephanibuchmanphotography.com ) while raising my family as some people do so well. But knowing myself, I realized that part time dedication was not an option for either a photo career or raising young children.

So now, as my third enters full time school, I am ready to begin again. I come back to the industry with a little more wisdom, a strong ability to delegate (someone has to tell them what to do!) and a real desire to continue creating both commercial, and fine art photography.

I look forward to sharing my future adventures in my 2010 virgin campaign.
