Ansel Adams:

“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer – and often the supreme disappointment.”


“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”


“The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.”


“A true photograph need not to be explained, nor can it be contained in words.”



“The goal is not to change your subjects, but for the subject to change the photographer.”


“Eyes like a shutter, mind like a lens.”


“You don’t take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.”


“Everyone has a photographic memory, but not everyone has film.”


“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

– Karl Lagerfeld


“The world just does not fit conveniently into the format of a 35mm camera.”

– W. Eugene Smith


“There will be times when you will be in the field without a camera. And, you will see the most glorious sunset or the most beautiful scene that you have ever witnessed. Don’t be bitter because you can’t record it. Sit down, drink it in, and enjoy it for what it is!”

– DeGriff
