I feel so stupid...

I hope I didn't screw myself out of a nice gig. It would suck to lose a few grand, just because I didn't read through an email. I was finishing up business with a band's management and held an email in my box, so I could reference their billing info when I had more time to type up an invoice. I didn't immediately print up an invoice and let it sit on the back burner for a week.

Well, I finally got around to it tonight and noticed there was more in that email besides the billing info. The second paragraph said how much they loved working with me and was wondering if I was available to shoot another album cover for a different artist. Oops. Not very professional to take a whole week to answer back, huh?!?

I feel so stupid for not checking through the email for a whole week. I've been so behind and playing catch up for the last several days, and was prioritizing the images before I messed with invoices. It IS the professional thing to deliver a finished product before sending a final invoice, but not so professional to inadvertently ignore client questions and requests. I am hoping this didn't just cost me a nice gig...

Water aerobics, anyone?!?

My most current video covers the topic of water aerobics. Sound exciting? Well, believe it or not, it was!

Burger surprise...

It was kind of funny getting this door hanger on the front door of my house the other week. I pulled it off the handle of my front door to see what kind of deals were being offered me, and I spotted a hamburger. My hamburger. Well, not mine, as in one that I cooked or ate. No, it was my photo. See it below:

OK, so it's not a photograph that will wind up in the MOMA or The Louvre. However, it was still fun/funny to see it hanging on my front door. And by the way, the food at 1st & 10 looked and smelled amazing! I plan on going sometime soon to see just how great it tastes... maybe I'll even take my coupon in there!
