Yes I'm turning down job offers...

I'm a career professional photographer usually based out of (generally) both the Pittsburgh & Charleston areas; and am also strongly weighing in opening a location in Vail, Colorado. I'd state that about one third of my work is in the studio - which is unfortunate. Another third on location - IF the weather actually permits it. the last third; traveling all over the place; last year was a slower year for having the need for air travel - but I still did well in excess of 300,000 air miles.

And then when doing the true on-location shoot which is a bit too far to travel by land vehicle - one can be stuck in having to limit the amount of equipment that one travels with. Sure technically I could somehow squeeze two cameras into a rather large gadget bag, but if it were up to me - and there was a way to practically do it - then I'd even almost want to carry three above average sized gadget bags.

And then comes the real issue of this topic; I've been turning down more business than average just so far this year. A question for consideration for any and all of the mederators here... Any chance of opening a new thread topic where on can post job offers - without yet listing specific contact information? The contact information could then be transfered via a more personal message - without having it there for the entire world to view.

So far this year I've turned down nine rather extensive jobs in seven different North american cities. I wouldn't mind postig some of the specifics for the members so that might have a chance as well.

Just an idea; please run with it.

Also noting; even though I do have quite the listing of equipment, that technically true professional equipment is not always needed.

I just wish I could get a paying job. Everything I do is trade for print or clients can't afford to pay me.
