Nobody cares about your photography. The world doesn’t need any more photographers. It doesn’t need anymore musicians, writers, filmmakers, artists or actors either. We have enough. Its over-saturated.


The world’s survival is completely dependent on work that matters.

    on the last one, how did the camera not pick her up? but just the lights? is it due to the long shutter speed and ISO?

    thank you 🙂 can i do the same cu with a Cannon PowerShot SX410 IS ? it looks like the aperture or the shutter speed cannot be adjusted on this kind of camera …. or I just don't know how to do it …

    Another point to consider: Unless the handful 'best' photographers who do 'work that matters' are willing and able to pay millions and millions of dollars for each piece of gear, then photography would really be handicapped pretty quickly if everyone else stopped trying their best to do what they can.

    No new camera models, film won't be produced anymore, all photo labs will shutter their windows. One way or the other, the millions of amateurs are enabling the craft to thrive.

    Also, I think another perspective about what 'matters' and what is 'worth doing' vis a vis photography can be very personal. I, for instance, am just now getting into film photography in an effort to chronicle my life in a new city. It's true that most people won't 'care' about my work, but in 30 years when I can look back at these images and have a split second where I feel those same feelings I was experiencing as the shutter clicked……. those will be immeasurably valuable moments for me.

    In other words, I think you could title another video: SOMEONE CARES ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY (you)

    Very good video and comments on what matters. You are on the point. It has always been like that. Thank you.

    EXACTLY ! You put just the right words on what I had been more or less aware of for a long time. I am not able to produce photos that matter to the world, not yet anyway, but your video has definitely added a new dimension to my work! Thank you.
    My next personal assignment : I will soon be traveling to a foreign country. For pleasure. One week, one camera, an Olympus OM1 and one single roll of film. 36 exposures. EXCITING !

    love the paraphrase "can't rely on people to know what they want you have to be able to show them what they want"…Kind of picked that up later in life and still am creating using photography and drones…

    No offence brother, this vedio was really informative and helpful, but what I personally believe is that in order for your work, your art to make sence, it must be about you, you got to believe in that though the entire world dosen't, it's not the world that matters, it's you and your goal.

    'nobody cares about your shite photography' would be more apt. There's a LOT of self important crap out there… from digital imbeciles who know nothing of the history of photography to the legions of large format and collodion wankers who wouldn't know a good photograph if it hit them in the face… the same thing happened with regard to the desktop publishing revolution in the 80s… the bar of quality is just lowered…

    "Work that matters" is a pretty vague statement, matters to who? You? rich people? Poor people? Society in general? Art is for the artist, it doesn't matter if the whole world dislikes it as long as the artist is satisfied with it. Also steve jobs excelled at marketing and being ruthless, that is not admirable behavior.
