When asked why I pursued a photography as a profession, I always answer the same way; “Because I want to do something that matters.”

For the occasional hobbyist, photography is a fun pass-time. But for serious shutterbugs and professionals, photography is much more.

Photography is about telling stories and more importantly protecting memories. With a camera you can protect YOUR memory of a scene. You can also preserve that memory for generations to come.

That’s pretty important.

Photography has many uses. It can be used to document history, create art, preserve memories, etc.

Ask someone who’s running out of a burning home what they’ll grab. Nine times out of 10, it’s the photo album.

Photography is VERY important.
