Every now and then, we need inspiration to help us get out of creative ruts. But at other times, we just aren’t motivated to go out and shoot. Here are 15 quotes from photographers to keep your inspiration up.

“The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.” – Annie Leibovitz

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.” – Diane Arbus

“It’s about reacting to what you see, hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organising them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” – Elliot Erwitt

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” – Ansel Adams

“A photographer is like a cod, which produces a million eggs in order that one may reach maturity.” ― George Bernard Shaw

“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.” Henri Cartier-Bresson

”News photography teaches you to think fast.” – Weegee

“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough – there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.”
– Robert Frank
