Working with a Photographer Today

Today was a productive day, sort of. 

I started the day by re-bleaching my beard, which I haven't done over most of the summer.  Since my beard tends to be grey anyway, it wasn't strictly necessary until later in the season.  But the reason I did so is the next thing:

At the request of one of the photographers that I will working with this season, I visited her in-home studio to do a practice photo session with her kids, to generate some promo shots for use on her website and my own.  Since this is my first year, and I don't have pics with kids yet, I was willing to  do this on an otherwise unused Saturday morning.  I don't know if I'd be quite so willing to do this if I had more experience, and a collections of photos to post.  But I might, since relationships like this can be useful.

As a beginning Santa Claus, I am learning that there are a lot of moving parts to this occupation.  Care and feeding of reindeer, toy manufacturing, bell jingling, not to mention working with things like GigSalad, PayPal, and so forth.  I was on the phone with one of my gigs yesterday, and found that she could not make a payment on my personal PayPal page, since she didn't have a PayPal account.  She suggested that I try a business account.  So I did, and it was easy.  Learn something new every day.  :D
