I'M A PUBLISHED PHOTOGRAPHER.
My dad was asked by the local small-town paper for some pictures of the local basketball team my brother plays on and they used mine! WOOT! I'm a real photog! Okay, so it's only the local small-town paper but they're my shots! It's kind of exhilarating. I mean, they're not very good shots. And for some reason I'm not even really getting credit on the online version, but supposedly in the printed version my name appears.
Hey, I'll take it. Go me!
