When A Photographer Dates an Expert in Water Damage Restoration

I recently went on a date with someone and the experience taught me a lot of new things about something I never thought I’d even consider giving the time to learn about.

Being so obsessed with photography, people think that we are nothing but a bunch of people who know nothing else but to don on beautiful clothes and make up and pose. While it is true that we love doing those things, it does not mean that we no longer want to do other things. It was because of this stereotype that I decided to date someone that is not related to photography, whatsoever.

As a result of the challenge, I ended up dating a water damage expert. And the whole experience with him was fun and very informative. I got to learn a lot of things about an aspect of life that seemed worthless to me at first, but then later found out that it is as important as any other profession.

Beyond his qualities as a good man and as a responsible partner, I really am fond of the fact that through him, I was able to learn about water damage.

I have never personally experience water damage in Atlanta (where my home is). But once, I asked him what they typically do when they respond to an emergency water damage scenario.

This was what he told me that I could still remember:

“In times of emergency situation, the water damage restoration professional will immediately arrive in your place to assess the extent of the damage. We then develop a plan of action and quickly start the drying out process. We have a specialized drying tool use to remove and dry out the water, not just surface water but even water underneath the walls and flooring. When it comes to dependable, reliable, and competent service, nothing can beat the work of a professional.”

I really am thankful for having met such a wonderful guy who shows so much passion for his profession, despite other people looking down on them. I have had the same feeling when people treat photographers with so little respect. Both our type of job has people thinking that it is an easy field because other people can do it – people can do their own plumbing and can buy commercial products to help water damage problems, while people have smartphones that can take pictures in an instant without the need of a professional.

Amidst this misjudgment by other people, I found comfort in a man who is not ashamed of his profession and is very proud. He uplifts me to be just as proud of my career too, no matter what other people may say.
