    Another day down. Did a whole bunch of shit today, met up Ed at 830 to set up remotes for the Fight on Saturday.

    Then at 12 had to follow a Retail Fashion Mogul around and take some photos of him doing all sorts of shit.

    Anyway here are some pics.

    9 The people i get to chat and hang with, i sooo fucking blessed. Thom Hogan, Chris Farina, and Ed Mulholland. I am such an amateur compared to these guys, i mean i am anyways but these guys make me look like someone with a pinhole camera. :bowdown: Jed Jacobson(Getty sports god) and Glenn Levits not pictured but they were their too chattin it up.

    I only brought my 5d and 15mm fish so thats why the pics are so fishy.

    Weigh ins tomorrow :)

    Ill have control of teh remote, as well as shooting undercard, and some of teh main event. and maybe even dressing rooms :x:

    sometimes i wake up and i pray that it wasnt all a dream.

    I mean i am not rich money wise, i make 6 figures a year with the combination of all the work, but no means the pay most of the people in my field make. Im still learning and will continue to keep striving to be the best in the biz, i feel rich in the way most people never feel. I wake up everyday going wow, i am one lucky SOB. And to think i only bought my first DSLR 2 years ago.

    guys i really think i suck, i have def got lucky. And dont think im at the caliber i need to be to get paid what i get paid, but i work hard and try my best to learn from everyone and learn about every aspect of the game. I am still about a decade off to be even be talking to the guys i got to talk to today.
