Photojournalism is a kind of passion, which drives you to go where others run away from.

Photography itself is a kind of lesson, to learn to see something to frame it and to show others, what you saw. It is painting with light instead of colors.

Photographers try to learn a whole lifetime, how to concentrate emotions, action, hours and years within one frame. Concious photographers usually don't fear perfection, cause they never reach it.
