Things I won’t miss being a television news photographer:
*People who drive by, see a television camera and ‘honk’.Â It has evolved into a Pavlov’s Dog type situation.
*Covering Blizzards.Â It’s really hard.
*Trying to push small buttons on a camera when it’s -17 outside.
*People who approached me and asked, “Will this be in the paper tomorrow?”Â Ummm…this happened once a week, sometimes more.
*Carnival workers that have approached me over the years and said, “DON’T PUT ME ON TV!”
*People asking, “Where’s your camera?” when I’m not working.Â Although I suspect that will continue.
