1.Henri Cartier-Bresson


Henri Cartier-Bresson

  • “It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.” 
  • “The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.”
  • “The photograph itself doesn’t interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality.”


Ansel Adams

2.Ansel Adams

  • “There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.”
  • “I can look at a fine art photograph and sometimes I can hear music.”

3.Richard Avedon


Richard Avedon

  • “A photographic portrait is a picture of someone who knows he’s being photographed, and what he does with this knowledge is as much a part of the photograph as what he’s wearing or how he looks. He’s implicated in what’s happened, and he has a certain real power over the result.”
  • “If each photograph steals a bit of the soul, isn’t it possible that I give up pieces of mine every time I take a picture?”

Robert Frank

4.Robert Frank

  • “To produce an authentic contemporary document, the visual impact should be such as will nullify explanation.”

  • “The eye should learn to listen before it looks.”

5.Robert Capa


Robert Capa.

  • “The eye should learn to listen before it looks.”

  • “Photography’s 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent moving furniture.”
  • “It happens a lot. The first frame is the winner.”


8.David LaChapelle

  • “People say photographs don’t lie, mine do.”

9.Chase Jarvis


Chase Jarvis

  • The best camera, is the one that you have with you!
  • The gear you can’t afford is not the barrier keeping you from success. Gear has very little to do with photography.
  • It’s really a great asset to be willing to fail and blow it, so to speak, and to be okay with just making stuff, sharing it and getting feedback.

10.Annie Leibovitz


Annie Leibovitz

  • When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I’d like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.
  • A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.
  • The work which is manipulated looks a little boring to me. I think life is pretty strange anyway. It is wooo, wooo, wooo!
