Why do we do it?

November 17, 2012  •  1 Comment

This weekend I attended another one of the many photography workshops available to those who share the love of photography so that they can learn how to fine tune their craft and their business.  This one by Julie Paisley Photography was special for me in more ways than one.  Not only did I meet some extremely talented young women, all eager to soak up information like sponges from Julie Paisley, who made us feel like she had known us for years and eagerly shared her knowledge with the group, but the bonus for me was that it was in my home town.  Though I no longer have any family left there, I relived many memories as I drove down my old street to see the last house I grew up in before I left home.  So much had changed, aged, worn down, broken down, and I drove away with a feeling of emptiness and sadness.  As I drove off to meet up with the gals again, the little voice in my head said, "this is why we do it."  What? Yes, this is why we all share that love of photography.  It is not just pixels and sensors put together in a complex array to make an image.  It is because the image that comes from those pixels and sensors is a memory that comes back to life when we look at that print or canvas or album that we, as photographers, make possible for our clients.
