The camera is only a witness. It easily produces an image of truth. Photography is difficult because a good photography is a reflection of those who make it. When a photographer looks at his subject, he sees with everything he is, with everything he has lived. Knowledge, experience, and imagination enable him to do powerful, sensitive work. - James Stanfield
The biggest challenge of my work: making sure that I don't get into a rut. The minute any of use tackles a job with the idea of doing it the same old way, at that minute we are beaten. - James Stanfield
You've got to get to know your subject well; watch it eat, sleep, walk, fly, everything it does. Read all you can about it before you pick up your camera. Then think like your subject. - James Stanfield
