I have been in the workforce for almost 25 years , and for the last 12 I have been solidly working for just one IT company, the problem is that from 1988 to 1998 I worked in the photographic industry, I worked for a dozen photo labs for periods of 3 months to a year, I had three contracts on ships and holiday resorts, I also worked self employed as a photographer and camera repair technician, it was a very chaotic and crazy time in my life where all these jobs overlapped for the most part but I havent a clue how to summarise this. I dare say I contracted out or worked for around 30 companies of which I suspect most no longer exist.

I plan to stay in IT and I have no interest in going back to this industry, and to be honest I dont think it has great relevance in my current job search.

But how do I summarise this?

Were you a temp or contractor? You could consolidate it all under one entry - "Freelance Photography." And then explain under the heading you worked for various outfits. That's how I'd play it.

Thanks so much for both answers, I think I will let that chaotic time of my life off my resume.

Cheers
