The Importance of Family Photography
"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes!"
During my studies I have dabbled in press photography. Sounds not bad, right? In reality, it was taking stage photos for the fake letters from the readers. They paid well, on a student's pocket. The hardest part was to find the right models. I have engaged all my friends and their families.
Sometime was funny... when brother and sister played a husband and wife or when my neighbors have asked my mom about my sister's arresting. Amazing, how many people read the tabloids and believe in the fictitious stories....
I am not ashamed of what I did, but I am also not proud of it. In fact, scarcely yesterday I saw the true value of this job. My friend wrote to me, asking for the pictures that I took a dozen years ago by the way one of the articles. Her mom just passed away, and she had hoped that I still have a photographic film from "the session". It was the last portret of her mom. I am so honored that I could help.
Please, do photograph yourself and your family before it is to late!
