Inspiration • Creativity • Passion
Those three words pretty much sum up what my creative pursuits consists of. Those are the three building blocks that really keep me moving forward; they inspire me; compel me to stay creative; to get up everyday with the thoughts of, what am I going to make today? What am I going to create today; photograph today; write today?
Just writing about this, I can feel my energy rising. It does inspire me; it does motivate me.
I think Passion may be the most important word of the three. Passion is the fuel that can sustain us through the times when we might not be feeling so creative. It’s your passion for what you love; your passion for your creativity that will make sure that you push through any kind of slumps or dry spells. And it’s Passion, when we are in the middle of creating, that will take the project beyond just “good” or “yeah, that’ll work.”
What do you love to do? What kind of photography do you love to create? What kind of stories do you love the tell? Whatever it is, be passionate about it. Go all in, give it everything. That will take your photography past the next level.
Inspiration • Creativity • Passion; those elements are essential to me.
What are the words that make up the mantra of your creativity?
