A photographer (the Greek φῶς (phos), meaning “light”, and γραφή (graphê), meaning “drawing, writing”, together meaning “drawing with light”) is a person who takes photographs. A professional photographer uses photography to earn money; amateur photographers take photographs for pleasure and to record an event, emotion, place, or person.
Good photography comes from that moment when light, location and composition all combine to capture and create emotion. Sometimes that emotion is one of raw determination, a swimmer lunging to touch the wall, the laughter of a small child, or that special feeling while witnessing a once in a lifetime occasion. To capture those emotions, to record those moments, and preserve those memories is an unique opportunity.
