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.

be creative …

Many years ago, an excellent photographer made me laugh. I asked me: Are you a Nikonist?
What am I? – I asked.
Nikonist. I see you have Nikon on your neck …
But I have a Fujica in my hand … and I have a Canon and a Leica in my bag. And I have a Pentacon in the car. So I don’t think I’m a Nikonist – I answered. I just like to take photos …. I’m loyal to the Pentax brand – and he showed me the beautiful K1.
I am loyal to this woman and I showed him a photo of my wife … 🙂
