    For me, I always loved seeing lovely looking landscapes and it’a what inspired me to go and get my first ever proper camera. I always encourage my friends to get into it too.

    I’ve always admired good looking photographs. No particular person or photograph inspired me to get into photography, I just thought I’d start it as a hobby one day and fell in love with it.

    I remember seeing macro photography and thinking how cool depth of field looked. I messed around on my iPhone with all the annoying automatic features and got some basic depth of field. That was introduction to photography for me!

    I was initially interested in painting and them moved on to photography. My family members are my greatest inspirations and got me into this hobby, two of them do this for living and work for ad agencies.

    I love shooting things that inspire me and others. Photography allows me to see the world in other views and angles I might have missed otherwise.

    I see photography as a means of expressing myself, unfortunately I have no other artistic talents so I spend a lot of time trying to express myself through my photographs. I also use it to keep a visual journal of my life and experiences.

    Photography for me is a form of liberating my ideas, freezing it on celluloid (now of course it is digital), seeing the world through the lenses of my camera.

    A photo is more worth than a thousand words … Communicating through photos is a great art which developed a special interest in me on photography …

    My father had a great interest in photography and I inherited those from him.

    I really like the description that Sylvia gave. I like to tell my life story in photographs. It also appeals a lot more to people :P I got into photography from a young age, after seeing some close up shots on plants.

    NPN, I believe the original quote was a painting tells a thousand words or something along those lines. I’d say a photography tells a million ;)

    Lunar, the original quote was “A picture is worth a thousand words…” by Napoleon Bonaparte…
    But hope we believe in the meaning .. :)
