Always Seeing

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” 
-Ansel Adams

"Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” 
-Marc Riboud

 “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” 
-Dorothea Lange

“To the complaint, 'There are no people in these photographs,' I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.” 
-Ansel Adams

“Photography is all about secrets. The secrets we all have and will never tell.” 
-Kim Edwards

"When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.” 
-Robert Frank

“Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” 
-Alfred Stieglitz

“While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.”
-Dorothea Lange

“No matter how much crap you gotta plow through to stay alive as a photographer, no matter how many bad assignments, bad days, bad clients, snotty subjects, obnoxious handlers, wigged-out art directors, technical disasters, failures of the mind, body, and will, all the shouldas, couldas, and wouldas that befuddle our brains and creep into our dreams, always remember to make room to shoot what you love. It’s the only way to keep your heart beating as a photographer.” 
-Joe McNally

I love being a Photographer.

“Always seeing something, never seeing nothing, being photographer” 
-Walter De Muder
