Do You See?

Do you see how to make something complicated look simple? Do you see the hidden potential in each of your subjects? Do you see the promise of something important in everyday things, places and people? Do you relish in making the difficult look easy? Do you want to protect moments in time for future generations? Do you want the deepest, darkest secrets of the human soul to be revealed to anyone who cares to look? Do you want to find beauty where others have not? Do you want to share the special things that happen around you with others?

Are you willing to risk ridicule in return for keeping memories alive? Are you willing to face rejection when others don’t see things the way you do? Are you willing to deal with the frustration of spending months or even years making an image that everyone else seems to dismiss?

And most importantly -

Do you want to make sure that when you are gone, you did something that mattered?

Then you just might be a photographer.
