Magnum: Advice for young photographers

Forget about the profession of being a photographer. First be a photographer and maybe the profession will come after. Don’t be in a rush to pay your rent with your camera.

Jimi Hendrix didn’t decide on the career of professional musician before he learned to play guitar. No, he loved music and created something beautiful and that THEN became a profession.

Larry Towell, for instance, was not a “professional” photographer until he was already a “famous” photographer.

Make the pictures you feel compelled to make and perhaps that will lead to a career. But if you try to make the career first, you will just make shitty pictures that you don’t care about. – Christopher Anderson

interesting competition supported by Olympus.

The interesting about this workshop or one of the movie festival is that the speakers share a lot on how the movie can be done in terms of technicality as well as real behind the scenes shooting.

Just hope some major camera brand will make this happen more in South East Asia region.
