11. A GREAT CHALLENGE

Now, there is actually a lot more to photography than just pointing the camera at something and pressing the button. That’s where you start. But learning to become a great photographer is a serious challenge. You’ll always be learning something new, have new directions to explore, and new challenges to face. And that’s a good thing! This is a pursuit that you will never be bored with.

12. SHARE YOUR PERSPECTIVE

Everyone sees things differently. Put 100 photographers in a room and you’ll get 100 different photos. The way you see the world is unique, and photography lets you share that perspective with others.

13. EXPRESS YOURSELF

Your unique perspective can go further than just showing people how you see a scene. Photography also lets you express yourself—your opinions and beliefs. You do this by choosing what you photograph, and how you represent it. This aspect of your photography is ever-changing as you change. You get a sense of what a photographer is like as a person by looking at their body of work. This part of photography is absolutely fascinating as a viewer and fulfilling as a shooter.

14. TELL A STORY

Photography is a fantastic story-telling medium. Whether you’re telling a story with one image, a sequence, a series, or an entire portfolio, the possibilities are endless. Just ask yourself what story you want to tell, and photography can get you there.

15. CAPTURE AN ADVENTURE

One very common way people get interested in photography is through travelling. Who doesn’t pack a camera with them on a trip? The more you practice and learn about photography, the better you’ll be able to document your adventure.

16. THE BEST SOUVENIR

Photographs are the best souvenir from your travels. They are personal, beautiful, and have a story behind them. The trinkets you buy in markets inevitably break, or clutter up your home. A stunning photo on the wall is personal art that puts a smile on your face as it reminds you of that exciting adventure!

17. TAKE YOU SOMEWHERE YOU’VE NEVER BEEN

Maybe you haven’t been to an exotic locale, but photos can practically transport you there like a Stargate. They can show you the people, the food, and the sights. Or maybe you want to share your own travels with friends and family. They get to come along with you when you take awesome photos!

18. GET CLOSE TO WHAT YOU’RE INTERESTED IN

Photography is a fantastic gateway into anything else you’re interested in. Really fascinated by the music world? Become a music photographer and you’ll get to meet the musicians and observe the inner workings of the industry. We are really into coffee and got to spend an entire day touring a local coffee roastery and shooting it. We loved the experience and they loved the photos—win-win all around.

19. MAKE YOU FEEL EMOTION

Photos make you feel. They can produce every emotion, from happiness to sadness, fear and excitement. There is so much contained in one small frame—learning to produce them, and read them certainly opens you up to feel.

20. CAN MAKE OTHER PEOPLE FEEL EMOTION

Your photos can make people happy. They can make people sad. Through simply showing your images you can evoke an emotion in someone else. With the internet, you can affect so many people at once. Photography can really connect people in that way.
