With me at this point they are one and the same, especially since I have supplied Stock images and now attempt to make a living selling my images primarily through Art Shows. My interests have been in Landscape as well as Nature and Wildlife. From this and out of necessity I have gained an interest in observing birds and wildlife (which is also part of my education) as well as hiking and short distance backpacking. But though these trips and day adventures may appear from the outside as fun or vacation, they are in fact for the purpose of taking photographs.
