Finally it is that time of the year and the work is slowly coming in job by job. I have to say, I couldn't be more excited to get back at it and start working as much as possible. After a long winter break of being home and having an unlimited amount of free time, I started dying inside. Maybe this is a lesson learned because I knew these few months would be rough with a lack of work, but I wasn't sure how rough exactly. Now I know for next year to put some hard earned money to the side so I can maybe enjoy my winter months a little bit more rather than struggle through them and claim to be a partially miserable person.
Yesterday, January 24th, I retook the Part 107 UAV Test and passed after failing it by a few questions the first day it came out. This was a huge relief to me and after learning so much about planes, I think it's time to go out and start clocking some hours in the cockpit. In the near future, I look to start doing a bit flying and working on getting my Pilots License. Aside from that, there will be a new drone joining the fleet very shortly. I am beyond excited to finally have a drone where I can control more than just the ISO and Shutter Speed. Once I have more knowledge on how to fly and shoot with this drone, it will be a completely new world for me up there.
Despite all the downs I have been through, it is time to move forward and take everything step by step as I continue to get busy, upgrade my gear and learn more and more about photography and life in general. I look forward to the work that's to come while I still shoot my own personal things as well.
