Are you “a professional?”

“If you’re a professional, you contribute to the profession,” he replies. “There is an underlying attitude for support, a pouring back of interest and thought. Musicians teach master classes. Doctors do research, write papers, give time to charity. The artist is a professional.

“If the art gives the artist life, then the artist in turn should give the art life. There has been a lack of understanding of this concept in photography. But you just can’t live an independent, selfish existence. You lose on it.”

-Ansel Easton Adams
