One of my favorite sources of photographic inspiration- Hailey Faria Photography- posted this beautiful quote the other day;
I really couldn't love it more. Sometimes it's hard to look at the incredible work of others and not feel competitive- but creativity really ISN'T about doing what someone else is doing. Creativity is doing what you do best, and being inspired by those around you, so that you can continue to learn and become better at what makes you an artist.
I'm so lucky to be part of an industry that encompasses hundreds and hundreds of incredibly talented creative individuals. So I think I'm going to take some time every once in a while to recognize those who inspire me, and help to make my work better!
