For me photography has been a side line for a little over ten years, although my first commissioned sales date back almost 40 years. Sales of my prints have been consistent despite some rocky economic conditions here in Michigan. I sell broadcast television equipment by day, which I have to say, has become a real grind. I have met many wonderful people in the course of my daytime activities over the years and a good number have become consumers of my photography. The equipment sales feed the stomach, but the photography feeds the soul. That's fine with me.
