We Are All Worth A Picture
Most people tend to assume that in order to be in front of the camera you have to know how to pose like a fashion model or have a certain look. The reality of it is that you just have to have a story to tell- and we all have a story. In my opinion, photography is not about making someone (or something) look a certain way. It's about capturing the "what is". It's about capturing the emotion, colors and feeling of the subject. I always ask myself, what do I want the viewer to feel? What do I want them to think about? What is it I want them to question or challenge? Images have the power to make people question there own reality. This is another reason I love documentary photography as much as I do. There is no name brand outfit to highlight or a product to promote. Documentary photography shows life in it's purest form. It shows it for what it is. That's it.
