What fields of work combine being outdoors with an artistic/creative edge?

For the last few years I have combined trail running/hiking with video. I have a small hi-def video camera that I carry with me and when I meet bears, coyotes, bobcats, deer,etc., I shoot clips. I am learning iMovie and re-learning AfterEffects (I learned it many years ago) in hopes of creating short films. Sometimes I set up with a tripod and sit for a few hours in the wildlife crossroads. I'm in paradise when I can do this!

Tim Tex, I remember in high school, taking one of those personality tests to define your interests. Mine came out just the same! Artist/outdoors. Well I still haven't quite mastered it, but I'm working on it as an outdoor photographer. I do mostly scenic landscapes.
