I don’t have enough time

“You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyonce.” Everyone has the same amount of time, we all work and function around the 24-hour clock. So what’s your excuse?

Chase Jarvis said it well. “Replace the word I don’t have time, with it’s not a priority for me right now.” When changing this sentence, you will realise what you have prioritised in your life.

Are you a photographer or just a camera operator

When I go to a photography exhibit or show, I find myself looking at similar work. Photographs made from an inkjet printer, that are just stylised archives. Be it a photo of a bird, a photo of a dress, subject or event. Whatever it is, it’s just a photograph. A photograph that can be easily duplicated with the simple press of a button. A print on a piece of paper, nothing more, nothing less. But where is the artist’s brush stroke? Where is the photographer’s unique thumbprint, aside from on top of their shutter button?
