Photography Quotes



Photography to the amateur is recreation,
to the professional it is work, and hard work too,
no matter how pleasurable it may be.

Edward Weston



is in all great searches and is necessary
to all creative endeavors.

W. Eugene Smith



Photography, as a powerful medium
of expression and communications,
offers an infinite variety of perception,
interpretation and execution.

Ansel Adams



At forty-two
I decided to become a photographer because
it offered a means of creative thought and action.
I didn’t rationalize this, I just felt it intuitively
and followed my intuition,
which I have never regretted.

Wynn Bullock



I wish more people felt that photography
was an adventure the same as life itself
and felt that their individual feelings
were worth expressing. To me,
that makes photography more exciting.

Harry Callahan



The use of the term art medium is,
to say the least, misleading,
for it is the artist that creates a work of art
not the medium. It is the artist in photography
that gives form to content by a distillation of ideas,
thought, experience, insight and understanding.

Edward Steichen



Of course, there will always be
those who look only at technique, who ask "how,"
while others of a more curious nature will ask "why."
Personally, I have always preferred
inspiration to information.

Man Ray



My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been.

Diane Arbus
