Where do you see yourself in 5/10 years?
To be totally honest with you, as I’ve gotten further from engineering I find myself less goal oriented. Now I think more about the journey and how I can make it as rich and enjoyable as possible. So I don’t have an answer for you like “I want to be on the cover of National Geographic within 3 years.” I just don’t operate that way any more.
But I can tell you that I envision still being passionate about nature photography in the next decade, and I plan to continue teaching workshops and growing that business. Hopefully within 10 years I will have a number of international destinations on offer.
I also have a few projects in the works that could be career-altering, but that’s still a secret for the time being. Sorry!
I think it’s entirely possible that I will be living on the South Island of New Zealand within 10 years. But if that doesn’t come to pass then I’ll most likely still be tramping around the Sierra Nevada.
