A survey conducted by Canon found that Brits have, on average, two hobbies on the go at any one time, And for those who don’t? Men are more likely than women to think they’re too old to pick up anything new; women are more worried about the cost implication,65% expressed regret over not learning new skills or picking up hobbies earlier in life.


The survey was commissioned by Currys PC World to coincide with the launch of Through My Lens, a visual diary of the career trajectory of eight photographers who have gone from obscurity to wide-ranging success.  30% of respondents in the survey outlined above self-identified as photographers and 39% were either considering it or were undecided.


Through My Lens is designed to give aspiring amateurs a roadmap they can follow; to prevent them from getting discouraged or putting down the camera before they’ve even given it a go.
