“he knows the identity of the individuals”
“No one is you, and that is your power” – David Grohl
My hands were idle to write and photograph for a bit. I stopped and took a minute (or a month, if you want to be exact), to examine and audit my craft.
Who do I want to be? How do I want to be perceived by my peers and clients? What is the purpose of my photography?
And those three questions led to: Who am I as a photographer? How do my peers and clients perceive me? Is my message coming across clear?
The one answer that stood head and shoulders above all my questions was that I want to create raw and organic, unforgettable images. And I want to inspire other photographers. Whether it’s with this blog, or through my images, I want to encourage and inspire other photographers to create.
Yes, in a world filled with a massive multitude of other photographers, I want to inspire and encourage you to go out there and shoot. Why? That’s where David Grohl’s quote comes in: “No one is you, and that is your power”.
You are, in and and yourself, a unique universe with so much to give. And making time stand still is a great way of doing just that.
So please, go out and create. Don’t think. Just do. I promise to do the same and share what I create with you.
