Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more...

Comments from viewers (I am so thankful to them):

Once upon a time I’d ask artists how they got ideas. Then it dawned on me… artists don’t deal as much in ideas as feelings. And feelings aren’t something you “get”… You just have them, right? And then you show us… and we have them. Like, well… like this. Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic character portrait. The subject is beautfully lit and the skin tones are perfect. Really good work and you have a real talent for portraiture, regardless if of animals or humans.

Without wanting to sound like a complete creep – this is one of the best animal portraits I have ever seen. Low key, dramatic, moody – and he looks as if he has many stories to tell.
Anna Shaw

I think this comes as close to perfection, certainly within the specific genre intimated by the Groups this was submitted to, as a photo can be. It is also very nearly three dimensional. It is a startling image, a wonderful image.

Wow, Francis. What an incredible shot. I love everything from the black and white tones, to the perfect silhouettes, to the interesting DOF and focus. Brilliant!

JUST A FEW WORDS

Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.
Peter Adams

Passion is important, imagination is vital.

Art without wonder is merely craft.
Ted Byrne

Actually, I’m not all that interested in the subject of photography. Once the picture is in the box, I’m not all that interested in what happens next. Hunters, after all, aren’t cooks.
Henri Cartier-Bresson

The most difficult in photography is to remain simple.
Anne Geddes

The artist uses the talent he has, wishing he had more talent. The talent uses the artist it has, wishing it had more artist.
Robert Brault

All art is an imitation of nature.
Seneca

Pay no attention to what the critics say. A statue has never been erected in honor of a critic.
Jean Sibelius

Sandwich every bit of criticism between two thick layers of praise.
Mary Kay Ash

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
Albert Einstein

A photography is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.
Diane Arbus (1923-1971)

If you take photographs, don’t speak, don’t write, don’t analyse yourself, and don’t answer any questions.
Robert Doisneau

I can’t stand these damm shows on museum walls with neat little frames, where you look at the images as if they were pieces of art. I want them to be pieces of life.
Eugene Smith

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
Herman Melville

There is no such thing as a perfect image, only a perfect moment.
Joe Buissink

Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.
Salvador Dali

If you obey all the rules, you’ll miss all the fun.
Katherine Hepburn

Give a soul to your Photography, it will give a purpose to your Art.

If You Buy Me A Drink...

If you buy me a drink, I would not ask you / where you go, from where you are, / if you just get out of jail, / if your wife is pretty / or if you don’t have one, / if you are dawdling alone with a broken heart. / If you buy me a drink, I will say nothing to you, / I will contemplate you / We will say a few words / while keeping our distance / We will empty our glasses / and I will leave with a l…
