Despite what many people think (me, included), there is more than one way to tell a story. Writers use pen and paper, actors use themselves, painters use… paint.
Photographers are no different. They use a camera and their imagination to stop those moments that may be forgotten, but really, they can do so much more.
They can document a school’s milestone.
They have the ability to capture a child’s true nature.
They have the skill to immortalize the perfect shot.
They can catch a glimpse into a young couple’s beautiful future.
Never underestimate the power a photographer has. Holding a camera and pressing a button are only the mechanics. Stopping time, creating hidden possibilities, and putting story to subject is the magic beneath it all.
They’re illusionists, they’re artists, they’re storytellers.
