Are You That “Soul” Behind The Camera?

A Photographer, is a person who takes photographs using a camera. A professional photographer uses photography to earn money whilst amateur photographers take photographs for pleasure and to record an event, emotion, place, or person. (source wikipedia)

    Hello! Wow! I just saw a tweet about this and got very inspired. Here is the link for the photo you have asked for, plus it leads to the site I have made for free photo use! Yay!

    I feel that letting people see what is around my little area in the world helps them connect to what else is out there – authentically! Being authentic with clouds, bees in flowers, toys laying about, and other extraordinary natural beauty is what we find everyday! I’m so happy that others can make their way and inspire others to capture any beauty! Eventually, I would love to have other contribute to the site and gain exposure for their beautiful areas. Thank you!

    I would like to be part of “Are You That “Soul” Behind The Camera?”

    My photo of myself holding the camera is here – http://www.flickr.com/photos/tangenghui/2907962210/in/set-72157607487354676/

    I have my photoblog here – http://www.photojournalist-tgh.tv & photos hosted on flickr – http://www.flickr.com/photos/tangenghui

    Learning and taking photos since I was a young kid, I grew a lot and once aspired to be a National Geographic Photojournalist, this dream is transformed into my photoblog and it was awesome learning new tricks, techniques, skills and making new photography and travel fans locally and internationally.

    Your movement would inspire photographer of all levels here and helping to build a new friendship, network and community building in the love for photography !

    Here is a link to the photo of me behind the lens… http://eddshots.com/wp/about
    It is also my photography website.

    In this day of digital pocket cameras, there are more photos taken/produced each day than probably in the first half of the 20th century. Some are good…some are redundant…and a few are great, memorable, worth seeing more than once. My eye through the lens strives to be in the latter category – whether fact or fantasy, something to remember, revisit and revel in.

    Soul? Aye, there’s the rub…

    Here’s the link of me… http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnlundfoto/4813597961/lightbox/

    And here’s my evolving site… http://johnlundfoto.com

    This site is unbelievable!! And this free promotion is beyond generous. I want to be a part of “The Soul Behind The Camera” because I want to showcase my style, It’s difficult anymore to be “different” in photo land and still keep your “muse”, I find myself, time and time again taking pictures that I think other people want to see and it’s exhausting. I have made a promise to myself to “Make Photography Fun Again!!”… I make photo’s for me, and I want to share. Thank you for this opportunity.

    Hi Milana! Thank you very much for the invite! Here’s a link to me holding a camera: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gloson/4814090847/ .

    My Flickr is http://www.flickr.com/photos/gloson/ , and I blog at http://www.glosonblog.com

    Well, I love photography because it seriously makes you more aware of your surroundings. When I had gone into photography, I paid more attention to the clouds, the scenery, etc looking for something interesting to photograph. Haha… 😛 . It also makes you know that beauty is all around us and just needs to be discovered.

    It is also a wonderful opportunity to have your work seen on flickr. And, I love flickr because you can meet tons of other very talented and friendly photographers and see so many of their super stunning shots!

    Self portrait with a nice old Widelux:


    My site:


    My father and grandfather were photographers so it’s something I’ve always been passionate about. As a musician I have always taken a camera with me on tour to capture little moments and shoot other bands we play with, but it’s only in the past couple of years that I’ve begun to take photography more seriously as a profession and have become increasingly focussed on studio portraiture. I hope you’ll enjoy my portraits, I feel that I have developed a dark and dramatic style that I can call my own.

    Milana, thanks for the invite dear !!

    @Harry .. I liked your one .. simply … classic ..

    I have a normal one quite a while ago ..

    My Photo Story Music and Inspiration Site http://f22.in [You can feature your photos there]

    I have a strong interest in Art and Photography and I believe still photos live and give more passion that videos. A photo can be translated by many people in many different Directive .. Different Interpretations …

    I’m pretty much interested in Portraits, Landscape and Artsy photos.

    Even though my family has been into photography for long but I am pretty new into this. There is so much to learn in so less time..

    Hi! Here’s the link for an image of me holding the camera http://twitpic.com/280xbo

    My website is http://www.genabella.com

    Source of inspiration… things that breathe. I am a ‘people’ photographer (people can = animals too). I see every image as more interesting when it includes a character. While I certainly admire many photographs and photographers that don’t focus on ‘people’ as their subject, I believe that souls lend great storytelling enhancement to the expression of photography… both in front of, and behind the lens.

    Love the idea of this – would be honored to among your featured photographers – look forward to connecting to fellow photographers in the field.

    Hi fellows,

    I’m a sort of a french amateur photographer. I fall in love with the world vision, throught my lens two years ago, and from this moment I think about it everyday.
    What I try to show is what seems to be important to me on different matters : Portrait, landscape, cars, … I don’t have any favourite subject at all. Anything can be interesting, and that is why photography is something essential to me, you can walk the same way everyday but you can discover something new on it everyday too!

    Here are some of my works
    And also a new adress where I try to make some Iphone productions only :
