There are many reasons we choose the path we take in our careers or life and in many of those instances something or someone was instrumental in the direction we travel. In my case I have often wondered what brought me on this road, I have viewed images from the most notable and talented photographers past and present, but none seemed to have ever affected how I approach or shape my work.
I read stories of how many photographers have their worked influenced or shaped by another artist, I guess my question is who or what brought you to photography, and did it influence your style or philosophy in any way? I am still trying to figure out why I have been doing this for five years and still can’t figure out why. I would really be interested in some of your thoughts on this, it might shed a little light on my reasoning as well.
