Quotes - Art & Photography

"If photography is her hobby, find out something about it.   Although you need not become a camera addict, you should understand enough to be intelligently appreciative." - Pieto Ramirez Sr. (in his 1944 book entitled; How To Get Along with Girls)


"The best camera is the one that's with you." - Chase Jarvis

"Asking a photographer what camera he used to take the picture is like enjoying a great meal at a restuarant, and then going into the kitchen and asking the chef what pots he used." -Chris Harris, Nov 28, 2012, (at the Langley Camera Club, during the Q&A section after presenting his new book, Fly Over, in response when asked what camera he used)

"Those who walk in other's tracks leave no footprints." - Chinese fortune cookie (Aldergrove, BC, July 2012) 

"If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff."  - Joe McNally (from his 2008 book, The Moment It Clicks)

"You've gotta taste the light."  - Chip Maury

"I think I can feel color ... I can't explain it, but I can feel it.  In my photography, color and composition are inseparable.  I see in colour."  - William Allard (from his book; William Albert Allard, Five Decades A Retrospective)

"A good old-fashioned printed photo that you can actually hold in your hand is also invaluable. We have lost touch with the importance of printing pictures and rely heavily on uploading photographs." - Taylor Jones (Author and Founder, Dear Photograph) 


"I think that one's art is a growth inside one.  I do not think one can explain growth.  It is silent and subtle.  One does not keep digging up a plant to see how it grows.” - Emily Carr


"There is no right and wrong way to paint except honestly or dishonestly.  Honestly is trying for the bigger things.  Dishonestly is bluffing and getting through a smattering of surface representation with no meaning, made into a design to please the eye.  Well, that is all right for those who just want eye work ... the love and attraction goes no deeper than the skin.  You've got to love things right through." - Emily Carr (Hundreds and Thousands)
