Connect with people who are established, as they have the better equipment and experience. They can show you around. Work toward owning your own
equipment(requires income unless you have some for it), etc., and educate yourself as much as possible(various subjects about aliens/ UFOs, equipment
use...)...as a start.
and also Wasco2

Once you have some credibility and some investigations and research under your belt you can try writing a book and lecturing. You might also be able
to attract customers to a paying website.
My wife says she is OK with it as long as we have a comfortable RV and combine sight seeing with UFO research. It's a pipe dream now but one with a
real chance of happening.
The website is a good idea, yet there's some things to consider. As time goes on a website, your site, will be a record of your work. Be careful of
what you put on it, try to resist using "filler"... make it grow brick by brick and line by line... If that makes sense!
The "credibility" will be instant... once you endeavor to do such "work"... you are as good as your word. Don't EVER value "credibility" from
others. Keep your eye on the work.... a sort of "Never put the cart before the horse" protocol and rule.
There's a few things involved here that I'd like to suggest. One is that you don't need "credible" schooling / degrees etc... yet!!!! I suggest
you learn or re-learn a few things.
Logical Fallacies ( a comprehensive understanding ) ... in fact have a copy of such material at hand.
Journalism ( this won't take long ) ... learn journalism and investigative journalism, not to be a "writer", but to learn "how" to
think and research and coordinate your work.
As Dreamingawake mentioned Research, Research, Research... get MORE then a basic understanding of all material on this topic, and relative
topics.. You mentioned "Paranormal" ... psychic phenomena is inherent in UFO phenomena and research. Read and own all the UFO books you can get...
and watch out for internet / google education! lol
The hardcopy of all this material is essential... don't ask me why... we'll need another Thread!
Another Dreamingawake suggestion... the "equipment" is a must... This will make for a great book for you to write, after you've sussed it all
out... the cameras and sound recorders ... more than one type ( analogue and digital ) .. something as simple as Faraday cages.... to protect various
equipment or even vehicles etc, from electromagnetic pulses... filming or photographing is NOT easy.... especially at night... Some knowledge and
preparation and forethought will make your work "supreme" in quality... see? even to 5 different types of cameras... a 3D Camera would work
Wasco2 mentioned "My wife..." Now this is very important! lol.... Do you have a wife or friend? Will you do this "alone"? are you prepared to have
a partner helping? ... or work "with" others... because I will give you a secret here... ah..... yea I will... here...
Once you get the ball rolling man... it rolls... have active patience though... make haste "slowly"... But once the ball is rolling it rolls... you
WILL meet people.. you will meet "top" people in the field... None of it is an ego thing... at least NEVER let become so for YOU... But you will
meet the people and fit right in... It's not like some dream that needs to come true... it will quickly become like "normal" everyday life! lol
as in... This how you do it.. this is how it's done... it's the work...
Another thing about the website.... have mirrored sites... have your site on a few servers... mirror them. also... have a site that is NOT PUBLIC...
This is for your own storage purposes...
Now.... here comes some real bit... Learn about p r firms... about psychological ops... not the "Conspiracy spurious crap you know... but the REAL
THING... Learn how these things work... because you WILL come against it... You will be dealing in a field that is born and bred for such intrigue.
Learn about security... how to think as THEY think... not how the average person thinks see? Most people NEVER consider such things... they think a
camera or film in a locked car is safe... that's NORMAL thinking .. lol... It is NOT safe! see?
I hope you understand I'm not speaking of "paranoia" at all... I'm speaking of wisdom and experience and being SERIOUS.... those screaming,
paranoid!, are jesters or amateurs and file them as such... they are NOT serious. In fact they'll be trouble. It's a serious business... but as
someone stated,... it's not a business.. it's a work.
Having a partner in all this will make it brilliant and much better... for both of you. Writing will be the result... a sort of "publishing" your
work / results.... You write it or someone else etc ( or film a documentary )... but it's the product of your work... remember, the horse is the work
and the cart is where the MONEY goes... never put the cart before the horse... and for gods sake don't film any documentaries like Michael Moore!
He's a comedian and NOT a real documentary maker.... grrrrr ( Never take short-cuts, fabricate or make things up ) you will ruin all you've built
for a short-cut.
I can add more, but will let this settle.. we can continue later if it so happens...
oh! and another thing... Good Luck!
