Bill Hunt guidelines

Posted in Quotes by marktucker on December 6, 2012

I heard Bill Hunt speak at PhotoEast, in NYC, years ago. He gave out this sheet at the end of the talk. It’s basically a casual list of his recommendations on how to submit your work to galleries. I’ve lost mine since, but I saw it again this week on Isa Marcelli’s facebook page. Was good reminder. Click image to see (and print out) a larger version. Here is Bill’s book.

Ansel Adams quotes

Posted in Quotes by marktucker on November 15, 2012

‎”We don’t make a photograph just with a camera, we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved.” — Ansel Adams

And another:

“If photography were difficult in the true sense – that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching – there would be a vast improvement in total output. The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.” — Ansel Adams
