Photography Quotes

I love reading quotations. I think this roots all the way back during my teenage years when you somehow find hope and inspiration to move forward in life by reading or hearing words of wisdom.

I was skimming over Twitter last night finding organizations I may follow to widen my network in my biz. I guess I found a better way to bringing more to my biz, it's wisdom, skills improvement and quotable quotes from the greatest photographers.
