My first paid photo shoot was in July 1977 with a young woman named Karen. She needed photos for her portfolio and her boyfriend having seen the photos I had taken of my girlfriend hired me.

I had an old Argus 'brick' 35mm camera and met up with her at a local park. Under the jealous, watchful eyes of her boufriend and my girlfriend I managed some excellent photos in retrospect.

It is unfortunate that I have only these few photos from the shoot and they were printed by a drug store on a silk finish photo paper. I post them here as a matter of my personal history and to show I had an eye long before I ever had a class in photography.
