I love taking photographs. For over thirty years, I have been an amateur photographer. It has only been in the last year that I have worked to start selling my work.
Today, I ran across an article on an amateur photographer who won a Pulitzer Prize for his photograph. As I read this article, I was moved by the photographer’s story and his motivation for the photo. Here is the article . . .
It is easy as an amateur photographer or enthusiast to under-appreciate the value of what we do. Truthfully, we hunger for the moment that we capture that compelling image that contributes to how humanity grows and moves to a better hope. If you say you don’t, you are lying. I pray that day comes when I capture that moment.
Whether a professional or an amateur, keep shooting. Keep capturing reality as it actually is. You are recording humanity . . .
