Quotes:

“It’s a built-in ability to create, but sometimes you have to sit really still and begin to feel hopelessly bored before it comes out into the light.

“But believe me, once you sit down somewhere and do nothing for a while, you will feel an urge to do something, and your own ideas will come out.”

- o -

“When I think about it, I have no idea why I do it this way, it’s as automatic to me as looking for the door handle to open a door. To most of us, the things we do well, we just do, and we presume this is the way everybody does it."

- o -

“Your style is not recognized by what is in the photographs, but how they are taken. It’s the way you talk that is your style.”

- o -

“I often say that a good portrait session is like a conversation without words. You observe, and when something is said or done that would normally elicit an answer, as a photographer you take a photo instead. That action, as a response for what they did or how they looked, is an acceptable acknowledgement.

“We simply communicated, and in that communication the camera, after all, was not necessary. It is what people sense from me that’s important and what gives them an idea of my intentions and what I observe.

I photograph, therefore I am.”
