I was a committed photographer through my mid-20s, but moving, family, and other pressing needs kept me at arm’s length from a more serious pursuit of photography. I continued to dabble and until recently was satisfied with keeping this arrangement with my photography self. I've recently re-discovered the passion through photography of my son's soccer team and have been giving serious thought to pursuing that avenue as a heavy hobby-based or side profession.
