I was selling advertising for The Red Deer Advocate in Red Deer Alberta Canada. I took some shots with my 35mm of a flooded town during the spring. I went with the newsphotographer into the darkroom and he showed me how to print. I printed 5 different 8x10s that went into the paper. I was 24 years old.

A year later I opened my own studio. What a moron.
