The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don't have to explain things with words.
Ill always be an amateur photographer.
To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
After following the crowd for a while, I'd then go 180 degrees in the exact opposite direction. It always worked for me.
It's about time we started to take photography seriously and treat it as a hobby.
Photography is an art of observation - it's about creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary. You choose a frame and then wait until the right time for something magical to come along and fill it.
Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times...I just shoot at what interests me at that moment.
Photography is pretty simple stuff. You just react to what you see, and take many, many pictures.
Color is descriptive. Black and white is interpretive.
I like things that have to do with what is real, elegant, well presented and without excessive style. In other words, just fine observation.
You can find pictures anywhere. It's simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them.
All the technique in the world doesn't compensate for the inability to notice.
I appreciate simplicity, true beauty that lasts over time, and a little wit and eclecticism that make life more fun.
Most photographers work best alone, myself included.
I like to think I keep my mind open. When I walk the streets I don't look for anything in particular. I come from a philosophy that believes you shouldn't have preconceived notions - that you don't need a gimmick. That you should just photograph what you react to - what you see.
I see no difference between my pictures that people consider amusing and the rest. To me, it's all serious work - they're just a reaction to what I see. I don't leave this apartment in the morning and say to myself 'Today I'm going to be funny and tomorrow I'm going to be sad.'
If you're not a curious person, you're certainly not going to be a good photographer.
I'm an amateur photographer, apart from being a professional one, and I think maybe my amateur pictures are the better ones.
I'm not a serious photographer like many of my contemporaries. That is to say, I am serious about not being serious.
Good photography is not about Zone Printing or any other Ansel Adams nonsense. It's just about seeing. You either see or you don't see. The rest is academic. Photography is simply a function of noticing things. Nothing more.
Something catches your eye, or your interest. You attack it in some way or observe it in some way, and try to put it in some kind of form and take a picture. It's as simple as that.
You must have a visual sense if you want to be a photographer. It is a very subtle thing, this visual business.
A picture should be looked at - not talked about.
Photoshop is useful in many ways but must NEVER be used for the altering of photographs. My assistants and my agency do whatever Photoshop work for me that may be required as it is too complicated for my brain.
You don't study photography, you do it
