No you aren't wrong David, you are very passionate about your work, just like the other Photographers I have met throughout my life. Your passion shows through your work, all beautiful pictures which tell a story. I can't believe you don't take pictures for the fun of it, like the frozen camera out in 50 below zero, great plug for Nikon, just goes to show how the camera will hold up in the severest of weather. Maybe Nikon would be interested in buying that for advertising.
I do realize money is important to survive, provide for a family, update camera equipment, etc. for a professional Photographer, just like any other career field.
I do enjoy looking at your Photographs!
