I love photography. At its very best it reminds me of the beauty, wonder, and mystery of life.
When it comes to model photography, every photograph is like a single frame of a motion picture--with the photographer as the director and the model as the actor. In a split second, the temporary becomes permanent. And both the model and the photographer instantly become part of something lasting. What a great thing.
At our best, we should seek to transcend the ordinary. When we do, our work delights the eye. And sometimes--if we're fortunate--it also touches the heart and soul.
SHAMELESS PLUG: I'm involved with Heart Gallery, a wonderful organization. Photographers volunteer to take quality photos of kids seeking adoption. These photos increase adoption rates significantly. The LA branch is at http://heartgalleryla.org
and there's a very strong affiliate on the East Coast http://www.heartgallerynj.org
