What is Photography Motivation?

Photography motivation:

Having a motus and a motive to shoot.

Motivus— a moving cause. To be “stirred” to do something.

Motus— aroused, excited, impulse, passion, emotion, advance, progress.

Motif

Main idea or theme (motif in French).

The desire to procreate and make art

My theory:

As biological organisms, we desire to augment, spread and replicate ourselves.

As artists, when we create art works, they are simply clones or extensions of ourselves.

Why do we have a desire to procreate? I just think it’s inside our DNA. If humans didn’t have the desire to procreate and have children, we would have gone extinct a long time ago.

What then is photography motivation?

The desire to augment yourself through your photos.

The desire to spread joy through your photos.

The insatiable desire of the artist photographer to continually extract the maximum fruit of life, and to multiply the gifts he has been given, and to continually multiply this joy of life.
