    - When travelling to a new, unfamiliar location, how do you plan your trip to maximise your photographic opportunities?

    - What trips do you have planned in the near future?

    - Has your style changed over the years, and if so how?

    How did his gear get on in Antarctica? Did anything pack up in the cold?

    Of all the trips he has been on, which has been the most rewarding so far?

    What did it feel like when NG first said they wanted to publish your images?

    Do you find you need to keep looking for new spots to shoot to keep you motivated or are you happy with finding new approches to the same scenes.

    What advice would you give to someone wanting to make photography into a business.

    Stop knocking yourself

    Maybe ask Adam what process he went through to becoming a pro, when and at what point did he consider he was good enough?

    Maybe this is part of the process of us sorting our crap out and doing something then. I'm not technically there yet, quite a way off I think, but when I think I'm ready and have some thing's in a portfolio, I'll be going for it

    I have no inclination to be a pro at the moment. If my current line of work dried up, I might be forced to look into it. To be honest, if I was hiring a pro for wedding/family portrait, commercial stuff, I would expect some sort of formal training/qualification which would give me some assurance that they new the basics. I would also personally not hire a newbie (would prefer to practice on someone else )

    If you are going down the wedding/portrait route, you really should have backup bodies and lenses.

    Default Question for Adam Burton

    After the planing and getting to the location, how many images would you take there? Just keep shooting till the light it not right or once you are happy with the shot, that's it?

    How many months of the year are you travelling?

    What was the first paid job you did as a Photographer?

    Camera's include Nikon D7000 plus a 1897 Lancaster Instantograph which still works and a Leica miniature (Minox) digital camera.
