At the root of creativity is an impulse to understand, to make sense of random and often unrelated details. For me, photography provides an intersection of time, space, light, and emotional stance. One needs to be still enough, observant enough, and aware enough to recognize the life of the materials, to be able to 'hear through the eyes. - Paul Caponigro
 
...feed and respect the creativity, and the business you build on it will be strengthened overall. - - From the book: "Tell the world you don't suck: modern marketing for commercial photographers" by Leslie Burns-Dell’Acqua.
 
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. - Scott Adams
