Photography appeals to others who simply want to make the subject look good, portrait photographers are like beauticians. Recording how people want to look. Posed, lean forward to hide the saging skin under the chin, spot out wrinkles, etc. They are like the painter. Artists.
I always thought of myself as a tour guide, as a journalist, guiding viewers at an event. Showing what was important and worth seeing. Looking for outstanding features that need to be notices.
It is interesting how the newspaper reporter realize how everyone forgets what they read yesterday, and are only interested in today's news. I always felt like a librarian who was recording events for future generations to use for research. Chronicle a moment and better understand life.
Hoping the images will motivate the viewer to action, I was very idealistic. In high school wondering what career to take I had considered becoming a pastor, a missionary.
Photography is my way to reaching out and trying to guide people.
