Hi Bee,Nick was one of the few staff photographers at NG while most of them are freelance.Well, his life is the envy of a lot of people but you do need a lot of commitment and talent for that kind of career….For eg, can an average person spend months in the thick forest of Congo and still carry on as per normal…I think it takes an exceptionally driven and determined individual to accomplish such a thing. As for nature photography, just do it becos one likes nature and photography so naturally the two will blend together. Nature is full of beauty, intelligent design and surprises, so its a source of endless wonder. Even if one cannot make a living out of it, it ultimately should not matter, at least to me.
Now a bit sleepy:)
