Being an outdoor photographer sometime means finishing office work in the evening, preparing & packing for field trip and driving a few hundred kilometres overnight to get close to destination. Then you wake up at 5am, drive some heavy off-road pushing the boundaries a bit and spend several hours freezing on site photographing.
The next step after return, after you take care of frozen gear and yourself are long evening hours over the following days or weeks selecting the best pictures. Just slight adjustments and polishing the winners before you transfer them to paper. When all is finished and almost perfect you proudly show the precious prints to others…
And what you get is: “Those are nice pictures, you must have a very good camera”.
But it’s OK. We don’t choose our activities according to what people say, but according to what we love.
