The Photography Book

Everything you’ll need to know about photography:

1. Why make photos? And towards what ends?

Photography as a tool to augment your life experiences.

To make you feel fuller, more alive and grateful towards reality and existence!

2. Motivation to make new photos

Probably the trillion dollar question:

How do I never run out of motivation to make new photos?

My thought:

Pursue photography how a child would; with open eyes, and open visions!

3. Should we study other great photographers?

Studying the greats and masters of photography is good. But I would suggest:

First get a few years of non-influenced experience (just shoot as you like) *THEN* study the masters of photography later, so your original child-like vision is not tainted!
