New things happening

I am now selling DJI products and have sold Phantom 3’s and Ronin’s.  Please give me a call if your interested in a UAS.

 

I also have my 333 from the FAA and I have been flying jobs with my UAS and my airplane.  So I have grown in business and services.

 

 

New work planning out.

Been researching new business opportunities, collecting my associates together to make something new  happen, a new twist to an old turn._S3A0182

New overhauled website

Well I got it done, new look for my website, got my stock site up and running.  I have over 1500 images so far on my stock site.  I am so excited about getting my images out there for everyone to see and maybe even buy.  Buy?  That is a novel idea!  Well now it is real.  My site will have other items for sale also, custom framing, mugs, calendars, Shirts and lots more.  You will be able to select an image and have it put on any of these items.  How kool is that!

So while I sit all warm and comfortable and it’s onl 16 degrees outside I have the good fortune to be where I am.   Expanding my photography business and making that happen as I type.

People from the pass are calling and we are reconnecting with collaboration happening.  Just that me smile, sounds like things are falling into place.

 

Take a look

Helping My Mom

Having an up and down time with my mom, Charlene Crimm.  She has develop atrial fibrillation and while she was at the local hospital, they got her feeling better, but treated for the really bad cold and then when she had a AF truly never followed up with the care she really needed.  I have her in Centennial Hospital in the heart section and they are on top of things, I am feeling much better there than anything that happen at Harton.

We have her AF under control for now but she seems to be having these TI’s and they slowed her down a lot, and of course are always a set back kinda like three steps forward and one back.  Now we just have to balance her blood and hope these TI go away!  She will need some rehab and of course I want her back a work, doing what she does best!

New Years Resolution

My New Year Resolution is: to post more on my blog to keep my friends more up to date with what is going on with me and my photography.

With that being said I also have to be careful because of my Aerial competition, the ones close by don’t tell much and they sure have pumped me for questions and then one has screwed me on a job so my honesty with these guy has been lost, not telling them a thing and sure want have anything to do with the guy who burned me.  Now the other people who I am not a threat too are so very helpful and wonderful to work with and so free to share there great information!  Thank you for that!

Now for today’s happening  SNOW we have SNOW and I am not talking an inch I am talking about 6 inches!  How kool is that?  So I have shoveled a path out and have time to work with my images and ideals that I have.   I will share them in the future but I have to be careful.  So I took some phone shots of the snow and that reminded me to remove thumbnails and some other images off the phone and now back at posting the images.  So now that I have this posted I am moving on to adding more images to my phone.

Till next week
