I am an amateur photographer. I enjoy photography but I really have no time to dedicate to it. It's a shame, but I have so many other projects going on that it often falls by the wayside.
I am a bit of a gear head - my wife will attest to that, no question. I shoot with a Nikon D7200 which is my second dSLR camera. I used to shoot with a D5000 but it had an unfortunate fall and I broke the hot shoe. My son now is shooting with a D90 so that let's me have 2 cameras with flash triggers and one for ambient light only shooting. Worked well for a recent wedding.
Outside of my photography I am very involved with my family. I am married with 2 children. My wife and I volunteer at the kid's school. I am a member of the Governing Board and a parent rep at the school board. I also volunteer in the local hockey association at the executive level and as a level director for the kids my son's age. This takes all of my time... no pictures :)
With time I hope to dial back my volunteer work and pick up the camera more often. It will come!
