Quite a long time ago, I wrote this blog post about why we photograph. I’ve been struggling with that question for awhile and I’ve decided that I want to add a few more reasons to my initial list:

  • to force myself to take notice
  • to sway opinion
  • to procrastinate
  • as a reward
  • to prove worth
  • to justify expensive gear
  • to learn new skills
  • to experiment
  • to gain credibility
  • to relive a moment
  • to mark the passing of time

Have you ever considered why you photograph?
