Why I do what I do.

Not long ago I wrote a post about my defining my niche in photography. While I think that it is important to define and understand what it is that we photograph (or anything else that we do), it is more important to define why we do it. Some people are driven by money, others by a need for recognition. Then there are others whose desire is to create controversy and sow turmoil. The understanding of why we do what we do is more important than what it is we actually do.

In the movie “The Muppet Movie”, Kermit the Frog travels to Hollywood to become a movie star. His motivation for leaving his home was not money or fame, but to “make millions of people happy.” My motivation for my photography and art is very similar. If people look at my images and see beauty, find a moment of peace, are encouraged or blessed, then I have been successful in my craft. My primary medium for doing this is by combining either my photographs or art images with Scripture. Through this I find my greatest satisfaction.

If you would like to see more of these types of images, you can visit my other blog: A Quiet Corner.
