Our Favorite Photography Quotes

Quotes are so amazing, they allow us to be inspired by people in a few sentences or less. I've lived by a guiding principle for a while that's fairly simple: "Stop Seeking Extrodinary Advice From Mediocre People."

While that may sound harsh, there is always something we can learn from anyone, however, I've had the most success from honing in to advice from people I see as extraordinary. One way to get connected to extraordinary people is reading quotes from extraordinary people.
