The most important attribute a photographer can have is enthusiasm. - Arnold Drapkin, Professional photographer's survival guide by Charles E. Rotkin , ISBN: 0817454098 , Page: 13
 
To shoot poignant pictures we only need follow the path of our enthusiasm . I believe that this feeling is the universe's way of telling us that we are doing the right thing. The viewing public will always disagree over the intrinsic merits of a particular photograph, but no one can deny the enthusiasm that originally inspired us to capture and offer that image to others. - Timothy Allen - On choosing subject matter - From an interview in 'Photographer' Magazine (Russian)
