“No matter how sophisticated the camera, the photographer is still the one that makes the picture.” —Doug Bartlow


A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said, “I love your pictures. They are wonderful, you must have a fantastic camera.” He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: “That was a wonderful dinner, you must have a terrific stove.” —Sam Haskins


“Having an expensive camera doesn’t make you a photographer. It just make you an owner of an overpriced camera.”


“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional photographer, wait until you hire an amateur.”


“You don’t take a photograph. You make it.” —Ansel Adams
