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. 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). More recently returned to Canon with the 6d, which feels right.
