My official job title is "Associate Creative Director" or something like that. So I guess when you look at it strictly by hours I'm doing advertising things WAY more than I'm shooting or designing things.
But it's true what they say. Once someone pays you for something you love to do you're actually selling a little bit of that love off.
Photography has become that one thing I'm keeping entirely for me. Unlike my design I'm not worried if the message gets lost. I'm not worried if no one sees what I see in the the photos I take.
I like shooting environments more than people and I look for small places more than anything grand. I also am kind of a purist and don't believe in doing much (or any) retouching to the shots I take.
I have two cameras on my desk right now.
A digital SLR and a 1932 Zeiss Ikon 120mm
with no light meter.
I prefer the latter.
