    Mixing photography with other interests?

    OK, wasn't sure where to put this but here goes!

    How many people mix photography with another hobby or interest, and if so, what is it? By this I mean actually photographing the subject of your other interest, whether it be birdwatching, gardening, steam trains etc?

    For me it's travel. I just couldn't imagine not going on a day out or on holiday without at least one camera.

    I work at quite a few gigs, mostly as a hobby rather than a paying job. Often have my camera behind the monitors desk at side of stage.

    Very much. Steam Locy's and old trucks come to mind. Just to name a couple of "other" bad habits.

    I'd like to, but haven't been able to hold on to the right other interest.

    I do a lot of hiking and I always carry my camera on the trail.

    Well, the other interests benefit the photography. I have a full technical service bench set up for all manner of electronic and precision mechanical tasks. One ancillary "hobby" then might be considered rehabbing and modifying photo equipment for my own use and resale on fleabay. Then there is the woodshop, and that blends in and out. Likely this winter, I will begin crafting an 8x10 view camera.
    Cheers,

    Patrick

    Wood working and Train watching. Along with photographing old barns and the Amish of upstate New York.
    My wife photographs covered bridges and light houses: thus we travel a bit.

    Good Evening, Ben,

    When I was teaching, I spent some time as our yearbook advisor. Sometimes, by default, I ended up shooting some of the photos we needed.

    Since I'm also a semi-serious philatelist (photo gear and supplies don't take enough of my disposable income), I sometimes use various stamps as subject matter.
