I think there is a little bit of a photographer in all of us. Everyone likes to capture a moment that they can hang onto forever. Whether it from an iPhone, a DSLR, or a disposable camera, a photo tells a story.
If you’re still in college, have just graduated, or have been out of college for a few months to a few years and believe you have a passion for photography, take a look at what these professional photographers from Magnum have to say to you.
“Photograph because you love doing it, because you absolutely have to do it, because the chief reward is going to be the process of doing it. Other rewards- recognition, financial renumeration- come to so few and are so fleeting.”
– Alex Webb
“Forget about the profession of being a photographer. First be a photographer and maybe the profession will come after.”
– Christopher Anderson
“Photograph things you really care about, things that really interest you, not things you feel you ought to do.”
– Chris Steele-Perkins
“Never stop enjoying it. Try and not “look” for pictures but keep yourself always open and allow yourself to be stimulated by whatever hits you.”
– Donovan Wylie
“Read a lot and create your own universe. Learn how to construct and create a series. Do not be impressed by other works. Try to innovate or simply be yourself.”
