Making Not Taking Photographs

Backstage views on making photographs professionally

About Photo Making

Maybe you get it already… but it’s my contention that if you just “take photographs” you will never make it as a professional photographer. You have to “make” the photographs because that’s what the client really wants…

“You don’t take a photograph you make a photograph.”

Ansel Adams.

Photographs that sing in tune… will actually motivate a donation, sell a product, or right a wrong.

©   Oh yeah, I have a friend in Chicago. He has a big ball peen hammer. He is a lot more effective in enforcing copyright law than a wimpy old lawyer… so don’t swipe the photos.
