  21. 21. “...this profession is brimming with talented individuals.   Yes, it’s easy to get down about competitors.  Yes, it’s hard to find your footing. But, I photograph because I can’t not. I don’t photograph to compete with you.  I photograph because it’s a part of who I am. It’s a passion, and I do it because when I do it I feel complete.  I’m a photographer because I don’t know how not to be.” -mishi lane, @secretagentmama we aren’t curing cancer with a camera. at some point that needs to sink in. -zack arias, @zarias Thursday, July 1, 2010
