I see something special and show it to the camera. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs.
Sam's quote sums up perfectly how I feel about photography. I see moments that contain emotion and drama, and I want to capture them so others can enjoy them.
As an amateur photographer, I am not governed by the many demands professionals are. This allows me a more relaxed approach when it comes to taking images, creating a friendly and laid back environment for all involved. This allows everyone to feel comfortable and relaxed, promoting more natural collaboration and thus giving the best possible results.
