I’m feeling a little like a Superhero right now, only not very SUPER.
By day I am a dog walker, but tomorrow morning a temporary change occurs when I throw of my usual garb and don the outfit that turns me into ‘Photography Tutor’.
I’m not a photographer! As I tell the kids I tutor I am an enthusiastic amateur. Tutoring came about as a temporary help to a company offering workshops in schools when the photographer they had kept bamboozling the participants with technical jargon. They needed to find someone quick who could handle a camera, explain the basics in easy terms and cover a booking at short notice. I was that someone! Two years later I’m still that someone. I don’t mind (although I do feel a little like I’m cheating) and I enjoy seeing what the classes achieve.
So today I fly here & I fly there. I’m taking bookings for dog walking, arranging diaries for staff and sorting appointments. I’m finding materials for my tutor group, prepping my presentation and getting ready to drive for 4 hours to my destination. I’m being mum, I’m being carer and I’m being wife. I’m changing hats, roles and jobs a few times each hour……..
And not a phone box in sight
