Hello blog readers. I'm Jim Uhing and this is my story.
I'm from the Pittsburgh, PA area. I moved to Orlando, FL in 1989. I was a graphic designer for many years. I worked for myself for many years and at one point took on a full time job with a sports supplement company. That job paid pretty well for a graphic designer. I always loved photography and worked that in as part of my job. I learned a lot shooting fitness models and body builders. That job allowed me to live in a big house and have many toys. But that job was not enjoyable to me. It just wasn't my thing. I hated going to work every day. Then I met my person. She told me her story of being a successful real estate agent and making good money, but hating it. She quit her job and became a Bikram Yoga instructor not making nearly as much money, but enjoying her life. That inspired me. So I started setting myself up for a career change. I sold my house and just about everything else that was costing me money and causing me stress. I moved into her little 1934 bungalow and worked on building a new career. This was less than a year ago. I've built my website, got more into social media and started getting out there shooting wildlife, nature and whatever else makes me happy. One day I hope to move where there is more big wildlife, like Montana or even Alaska. The next step everyone keeps telling me is you need to blog. HUH? I don't want to blog. Well here I am blogging. I'm gonna give this a whirl and see how it goes. I have no idea what I'm doing, but hopefully enough of you will find it interesting enough to stay tuned. I plan to blog about my experiences, photography, wildlife, travel and anything else I think people might want to hear. I hope to post a blog once a week. If I have it figured out correctly, you should be able to sign up to get an email alert when I post something new. Any pointers, tips or advice are always welcome. Thanks for reading!
