Here’s what some of the top photographers have to say.
“If one is to follow their passion and do some good, then good is the aim. For photography there is an inevitable clash between the creative and the commercial, especially in the world of digital photography … It seems a lot of photographers, who love their profession, are too involved in their jobs. It is almost as if they are more into the business than it is. I don’t think this is correct and it is a difficult dilemma.” – Robert Cialdini, The New York Times
