I'm a fairly new photographer. I bought my first equipment in Februari 2oo6 and my interest has only gotten bigger since.
When I'm not too exhausted from work I try to get out in nature as much as possible. That is also one of the things I love so much with photography, I experience new places I otherwise probably wouldn't have been to.
I have also been working with digital design for the past 8 years and then you don't get out nearly as much. But... my photoshop knowledges has certainly helped me in my photography so it's good to have that knowledge in my spine.

It has turned out to be an expensive hobby indeed! But who cares?
