I just remembered an attempt I made to start a digital imaging business.

About 1996 I moved back to Houston from Phoenix. When I got here I started to apply for digital retouching positions at different studios, but while I was doing that I had a crazy idea. Swimming Pools.

My grand mother had a pool and my mother didn't, but she had a yard big enough for one. So I photographed my grandmothers pool from many different angles and distances. I did the same to my mother's back yard.

you can guess the rest. I dropped the pool into her yard using Photoshop, and it didn't look half bad!

I then brought the prints I had made to different pool building companies and showed them what I had done. I asked them "would it be worth a $250 investment to help sell a $15,000.00 pool?" I waqs soon driving all over the city shooting pools that comapny had already installed. But just when I was getting started I got a job offer from Gittings Portraiture and I took the job.
