Top Photographer Best Quotes

Photographer Best Quotes By Bill Brandt

But I did not always know just what it was I wanted to photograph. I believe it is important for a photographer to discover this, for unless he finds what it is that excites him, what it is that calls forth at once an emotional response, he is unlikely to achieve his best work. — Bill Brandt

Photographer Best Quotes By Platon

I always wanted to be the underdog. For me, as a portrait photographer, it's the kiss of death to become well known. I did my best work when no one knew who I was. People weren't threatened by me because they didn't think I was a big deal. — Platon

Photographer Best Quotes By Kobo Abe

Still, the one who best understands the significance of light is not the electrician, not the painter, not the photographer, but the man who lost his sight in adulthood. There must be the wisdom of deficiency in deficiency, just as there is the wisdom of plenty in plenty. — Kobo Abe

Photographer Best Quotes By Eve Babitz

[Photographer Julian Wasser] had this great idea that I should play chess naked with Marcel Duchamp and it seem to be such a great idea that it was just like the best idea I'd ever heard in my life. It was like a great idea. I mean, it was - Not only was it vengeance, it was art, and it was, like, a great idea. And even if it didn't get any vengeance, it would still turn out okay with me because, you know, I would be sort of immortalized. — Eve Babitz

Photographer Best Quotes By Jay Maisel

If you don't have a camera, the best thing you can do is describe how great it looked. — Jay Maisel

Photographer Best Quotes By Bill Jay

If there is a single factor which separates the best photographers from the wannabes it is the quantity of images which they produce. They seem to be forever shooting. I have watched many of them as they take picture after picture even when they are not photographing. [ ... ] Often these intimate images do not look as though they were taken by the same photographer. And that is their fascination and charm. — Bill Jay

Photographer Best Quotes By Annie Leibovitz

I've said about a million times that the best thing a young photographer can do is to stay close to home. Start with your friends and family, the people who will put up with you. Discover what it means to be close to your work, to be intimate with a subject. Measure the difference between that and working with someone you don't know as much about. Of course there are many good photographs that have nothing to do with staying close to home, and I guess what I'm really saying is that you should take pictures of something that has meaning for you — Annie Leibovitz

Photographer Best Quotes By John Szarkowski

Luck is the attentive photographer's best teacher. — John Szarkowski

Photographer Best Quotes By Jacques Lecoq

I'm kind of a walking photographer, i love exploring new places. One day I was taking a break during an excursion in the Broceliande forest, looking for the best place to settle, when I discovered a small clearing with a tree without leaves. I stayed for hours looking around, taking some pictures and I found Le Coq lying down under the tree. The tree's branches were rising as if to touch the sky. — Jacques Lecoq

Photographer Best Quotes By Beaumont Newhall

More and more are turning to photography as a medium of expression as well as communication. The leavening of aesthetic approaches continues. While it is too soon to define the characteristic of the photographic style today, one common denominator, rooted in tradition, seems in the ascendancy. The direct use of the camera for what it can do best, and that is the revelation, interpretation, and discovery of the world of man and of nature. The greatest challenge to the photographer is to express the inner significance through the outward form. — Beaumont Newhall

Photographer Best Quotes By Natalie Coughlin

I was the official wedding photographer at one of my best friends' weddings. Fortunately she was one of the most easygoing brides ever, so she made it easy for me. — Natalie Coughlin

Photographer Best Quotes By Feist

For me, the best part is people who watch the movie and tell me it inspired them to collaborate with their friend who's a photographer or filmmaker. — Feist

Photographer Best Quotes By Michael Kenna

Sometimes the most interesting visual phenomena occur when you least expect it. Other times, you think youre getting something amazing and the photographs turn out to be boring and predictable. So I think thats why, a long time ago, I consciously tried to let go of artists angst, and instead just hope for the best and enjoy it. I love the journey as much as the destination. If I wasnt a photographer, Id still be a traveler. — Michael Kenna

Photographer Best Quotes By Gregory Heisler

A photographer is responsible for creating a climate in which they can do their best work. — Gregory Heisler

Photographer Best Quotes By Eliot Porter

But before all else a work of art is the creation of love. Love for the subject first and for the medium second. Love is the fundamental necessity underlying the need to create, underlying the emotion that gives it form, and from which grows the unfinished product that is presented to the world. Love is the general criterion by which the rare photograph is judged. It must contain it to be not less than the best of which the photographer is capable. — Eliot Porter

Photographer Best Quotes By Ellen Von Unwerth

I like to photograph anyone before they know what their best angles are. — Ellen Von Unwerth

Photographer Best Quotes By John Szarkowski

A photographer's best work is, alas, generally done for himself. — John Szarkowski

Photographer Best Quotes By John Paul Caponigro

The best plans evolve. — John Paul Caponigro

Photographer Best Quotes By Ernst Haas

Photographer Best Quotes By Henry Peach Robinson

The aim and end of the artist is not truth exactly, much less fact; it is effect ... There is no doubt he [the photographer] best gets his effect by way of truth, but he uses it as he would a servant, not a master. — Henry Peach Robinson

Photographer Best Quotes By Irving Penn

I am a professional photographer because it is the best way I know to earn the money I require to take care of my wife and children. — Irving Penn

Photographer Best Quotes By Lauren Myracle

Amanda bit her lip. "You're not ... trying to be funny or something, are you?"
"I'm not trying to be anything!" I said.
"All right, kids," the photographer called. "On the count of three. One, two-" She broke off, straightening up from the camera with a frown. "Excuse me. You in the turquoise? I need you to face forward."
I rotated my body as best I could.
"All the way, please."
I turned so that my shoulders werre even with everybody else's, only now my head faced Gail instead of the lens.
Gail pressed her lips together. "Stop it!" she said.
"Winnie?" Mr. Hutchinson said. He walked to the end of our row. "What's going on?"
"I can't," I whispered.
"Can't what?"
"Can't move my neck, it's stuck." Tears burned in my eyes, and I blinked hard to keep them back.
"Mr. Hutchinson, she's faking," Gail said. "She's trying to be funny and she's ruining everything. — Lauren Myracle

Yes, best friend of mine. I am the famous photographer you've admired for years, and the man who's admired you. — Kelly Moran

Photographer Best Quotes By Richard Billingham

I suppose the primary intention of a documentary photographer is to document facts. My work often does this but it is not the primary intention. My intention is to make the best pictorial image I can. — Richard Billingham

Photographer Best Quotes By Burk Uzzle

A photographer's best pictures are from deep inside him, and also some of the worst. Some photographers enjoy distinguished careers without ever taking personal photographs. Others, audaciously and arrogantly and courageously discharge their most private feelings through photography. Trouble is, sometimes it all adds up to baloney. — Burk Uzzle

Photographer Best Quotes By Platon

People are at their best when they can be natural. And that's the hardest thing as a photographer. — Platon

Photographer Best Quotes By Alexey Brodovitch

The personality and style of a photographer usually limits the type of subject with which he deals best. For example Cartier-Bresson is very interested in people and in travel; these things plus his precise feeling for geometrical relationships determine the type of pictures he takes best. What is of value is that a particular photographer sees the subject differently. A good picture must be a completely individual expression which intrigues the viewer and forces him to think. — Alexey Brodovitch

Photographer Best Quotes By Bill Brandt

It is essential for the photographer to know the effect of his lenses. The lens is his eye, and it makes or ruins his pictures. A feeling for composition is a great asset. I think it is very much a matter of instinct. It can perhaps be developed, but I doubt if it can be learned. To achieve his best work, the young photographer must discover what really excites him visually. He must discover his own world. — Bill Brandt

Photographer Best Quotes By James Maher

The street photographer can best be identified not by what they shoot, but why they shoot. — James Maher

Photographer Best Quotes By Richard Price

I love Israel, I go back all the time. I just love New York a little more. My workers are Arabs, my best friend is a black man from Alabama, my girlfriend's a Puerto Rican, and my landlord is a half-Jew bastard. You know what I did this morning? I read in the paper yesterday that the circus is setting up in the Madison Square Garden, they said the elephants would be walking through the Holland Tunnel at dawn. I'm a photographer a little too, you know? So I get up at five o'clock, bike over to the tunnel, and wait. It turns out the paper got it wrong, they came through the Lincoln, but still, you know? This is a hell of a place. — Richard Price

Photographer Best Quotes By Helen Mirren

I always feel when you work with an artist and whenever I work with a really good photographer, I try to give him or her their own artistic freedom because that's the way you get the best work or at least the most interesting work. — Helen Mirren

Photographer Best Quotes By Berenice Abbott

You scientists are the worst photographers in the world and you need the best photographers in the world and I'm the one to do it. — Berenice Abbott

Photographer Best Quotes By Annie Dillard

Every year the aspiring photographer brought a stack of his best prints to an old, honored photographer, seeking his judgment. Every year the old man studied the prints and painstakingly ordered them into two piles, bad and good. Every year the old man moved a certain landscape print into the bad stack. At length he turned to the young man: "You submit this same landscape every year, and every year I put it on the bad stack. Why do you like it so much?" The young photographer said, "Because I had to climb a mountain to get it." A — Annie Dillard
