    I agree with JP, whenever I shoot a larger amount of rolls in a single day, it's usually in the same location. I don't photograph the same exact thing, maybe the same subjects, but things change, people move, etc. Most of the time I find myself photographing 8 rolls of film on a single street corner in a time frame of about 8-15 minutes. It dosent ever matter where I am, if things are moving, it can get interesting. There is a difference however between observation and intention, and simply trying to get a higher number of frames for security. On the contrary, I work better knowing I am risking everything.

    This all depends, I find when I'm traveling I shoot way more possibly ~40 exp. roll or more a day. But when I'm bored here in Madison during the summer I try and do at least 2 rolls (~40 exp.) a week, or more if I've got an idea in my head.

    Much more shooting in the summer, much more printing in the winter.

    Probably thirty rolls a year but as per Steve above skewed heavily towards the summer months. Sadly with the rocketing cost of shooting transparencies, I can see that figure falling rather than rising.

    I probably shoot about 50 rolls a year, that includes 120 film I would think it's about 30 rolls of 135 and 20 of 120. Iv'e shot a lot more since I retired 8 years ago because I now go out shooting almost every day.

    Probably around 50-60 rolls a year, but over half of those could be done within a 1-3 week period while travelling. I rarely shoot outside of holiday time (I've got 5 months a year), since work and life in general are pretty draining otherwise.

    I average 3 rolls per week of 35mm, and 2 rolls of 120. There is a lot of scenery here, both winter and summer!

    Wow.
    Several, say an average of three per week. Frames, not rolls.

    I'd go with E. von Hoegh, perhaps not even as many as that, remember it's quality not quantity, the d****** guys I mix with might just as well be shooting movies.

    I'm with E. von Hoegh too. I carry my camera walking almost every day. The other day I used 6 frames and that was very unusual. Usually 1 or 2 and often none. It usually takes me several weeks to finish a roll. Which is good because it takes me that long to make all the prints too! Sort of a nice balance there.
