Loved photography since saving my snow shoveling/lawn mowing money for a Canon AE-1 as a kid. Then, in college I worked in alaska's Denali park, and got burned out on everyone trying to get the same picture of a bear instead of actually just enjoying the experience of seeing a bear. So I stopped taking photos for quite a while. But, I've recently picked it back up again. I think it was my iphone that got me interested again. Just having fun. Learning. So I picked up a Sony NEX and have been enjoying taking photos again (but I'll still choose to experience something first, and photograph it second).
