Most people know that I am a photographer.
What you might not know is that I am also a Transit Bus Driver.
(Original blog can be found here: http://stacyfrett.com/blog with other images as well.)
Some of my best ideas come from the roads that I travel, sometimes in upwards of 300 miles a day. My day starts at 4 am on most days when most people are still snuggled under their covers. By 5:15 or 5:20 am I am on the road to pick up passengers. Presently, my mornings start in complete darkness with the occasional fog. I am often graced with seeing the sunrise as I go through my mornings and later in the year I also get to see the sunset.
You might ask what any of this has to do with my work as a photographer. Here goes: My run in the morning goes till 8:30 Am and I am off till 13:45 (1:45 PM). In that time I have a most wonderful break. Typically I grab a snack and go photograph for a couple of hours and then take a nap for an hour around noon. With the remaining time I relax, check my email, and check out a few frames. Other days I go to a local Wi-Fi spot and work on post processing for my website, customers, or Etsy shops: Frett Fine Art and Chaise Longue Gallery of Stacy Frett. I feel incredibly blessed with the day job that I have. I can even schedule shoots in between, but prefer those to be done on Saturdays or Sundays. I am typically busy with other projects as well.
Currently am working towards getting a project going with the young adults at Easter Seals in Paducah, KY Using Google Glass as a means of making photographic art. Check it out here: Project info and donation site: Make Art Possible and our Blog.

Thanks and have a great day!
Photographer, Artist, and Transit Driver
