be a photographer …

What makes us photographers? Are these great photos? Or the willingness of others who let us take pictures? Is it the photographer’s equipment? Blood was always boiling inside me when someone more experienced condemned the work of a young enthusiast who took pictures on the phone. I don’t care who takes pictures with what. Some like blondes, some like brunettes … The important thing is that he likes them. As for me … I love them all …. And among us, do you want to be another Jim Marshall? Jan Saudek? Nadav Kander? There are many of them. They were in the right place at the right time and they knew what they were doing … They saw the photo before they pulled the shutter button.

  1. I agree. I have always had the thought if one doesn’t own a camera they more than likely have a camera on their cell phone… use it. Some of the best moments are right there. BTW the photo you posted reminds me of a time long ago when as kids we were in a station wagon at a Motel for vacation. Unlike those of today. 🙂

    1. You won’t believe it, but that night I slept with my wife in the car in the parking lot. We watched The Big Bang Theory on the phone and enjoyed a private Cinema drive 😁😘
