Bambi on Ice
"Photography is no different. Again, I don’t want to commercialize, commodify, or finance-ify (??) photography because there are MFAs up in here reading this wearing V-necks and Urban Outfitters cardigans, and they all just heavily sighed, but let’s be real here folks. Photographers provide a unique service: we need to be professionals at performing under pressure, not great situations, time crunches, bad light, rolling with the punches, and making awesome work through all of these obstacles. This means rising to the occasion and being very dependable at taking awesome, engaging, unique photographs under a range of situations beyond our control, even if the subject gives us only 5 minutes, even if we’re jetlagged, even if it’s dumping rain, even if the absolute fucking last thing we want to do is go out and make some photographs, we’ve gotta go out and perform.
