51. TRAVEL IN TIME

Photographs let you travel through time without the use of a DeLorean. They can bring you back to a moment that you experienced, and you can remember just how you felt. Or they can bring you way back to a time before you were even born. Then you can wonder about how others felt!

52. COMMUNICATE ACROSS LANGUAGE AND CULTURE

Photography is like music. There are no language barriers or cultural barriers. You can communicate with people around the world with an image. And you can connect! Once you start getting your work out there, you’ll be amazed at the connections you make because of it.

53. MAKE MONEY

Oh yeah, and you can potentially make money from photography! Pretty nifty, earning money from something so cool. But hopefully, you can see that this is just one small reason to become a photographer. Even if you never make a dime at it, it’s definitely a worthwhile pursuit!! (Please see above for reasons why.)

54. DEVELOP A LOVE FOR LIFE

After all these reasons, this one should just make sense. With all the beauty, joy, love, connection, variety, history, adventure, movement, emotion, and awesomeness that makes up life, how could you not be stoked to get out there and experience it?? With camera in hand, of course.

Let’s wrap it up here. Anyone can become a photographer. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, what country you live in, or what language you speak. Just get your hands on a camera–any camera–and start shooting. Practice, think about your work and open yourself up to your experiences. Keep at it and you’ll see firsthand why being a photographer is so gosh darn awesome!!
