Photography at times can be a rough pursuit, so it can be important to think about why you do it. So today, I list three of the reasons most important to me.
- The most obvious, probably painfully so, is that it is fun. Let’s face it, fun is always a huge motivational factor.
- To communicate ideas or facts to others. This is one of my favorite images from my nature photography days, where I was photographing prescribed burns at William L. Finley NWR to communicate the importance of fire in Oak Savanna conservation.
- Probably the absolutely coolest part of photography to me is that I have seen things that I probably would have never seen any other way.
