The very happy and optimistic thought:

The more I go out and shoot and photograph the world, the more beautiful, rich and fuller it becomes.

Isn’t this a great thought?

What does it mean?

It means we have a personal motive and incentive to go out and shoot the world. The more we shoot it, the more we understand it and delight in it!

How do we fail and go wrong as photographers and visual artists?

Our only vice as photographers:

When we lose the zest and interest in the world around us.

When we think we have already ‘done it all’ or ‘photographed it all’ and we lack the new motivation and inspiration to go out and shoot *NEW* photos. The Uber-photographer as the one who sees more opportunities, more adventures, more excitement and more new things to discover!

The future of photography is you.
