I'm writing this while I sit in McDonald's in Camden drinking a nice hot cappucino.... For the last thirteen months (until recently) I worked as an IT Support Technician at MayTek IT Solutions in Smeaton Grange. Unfortunately due to restructuring, I no longer work there and am now in the position of job hunting.
I have looked for jobs in the past and had mixed luck. While working at one company, I spent three years looking but nothing until I'm handed notice and was able to secure a job with a simple message to a friend.
After that I had applied for roles and managed to work at a television station based in Sydney but didn't fully utilise the opportunity of learning as much as I could about cameras and the various technologies that were on hand. Go pro cameras had just been released and they were being utilised by various departments for video footage. I had friends that were executive producers for to shows and was the 'go to' guy for the graphics department after a colleague had moved on to a new role.
So now I feel as though I'm at a crossroads; for the last thirteen years I've worked in IT support roles but now have a desire to work with photography.....
As a father and a husband I must provide support to my family first but does this mean that I can't follow my new passion for photography?
