My Interstate Office

Luckily for me, I don’t have to explain to anyone where or with whom I’ll be “working” at any given time.

I put that word in quotes because what some people might consider to be work is simply a pleasurable activity in which I earn my living.

This includes sales and marketing, which I find to be quite enjoyable.

Sure, I have an office where I do retouching, bookkeeping and other things that most artists consider to be drudgery. But I don’t have to make an appearance there if I don’t want to, though it’s hard to avoid since the office is in my house.

Recently I was meeting with some existing and prospective clients with my portfolio to talk about how we might find some creative intersections. Instead of flying from point to point I decided to drive.

Having already started in Los Angeles following a shoot there I decided to drive to a portfolio presentation in Albuquerque.  Some might consider this kind of business travel to be “working” but I sure don’t.

If indeed that was work, here’s a snapshot from my rolling Ford SUV “office” at the halfway point between LA and ABQ.

It’s from the somewhere after Phoenix and before Flagstaff on Interstate 17.
