As much as Ingram Images is a business, it's also my own personal journey.
A journey of my own creativity, and one that I'm blessed to share with clients, models and friends.
There are of course business owners who lay awake at night worrying about cashflow, and I've had some of that myself, but more often than not, my mind goes to other things. Well, one other thing.
New ideas for photographs. Small, subtle changes I could make to make photographs more meaningful. Using water in photographs. Using fire in photographs, New lighting in photographs, more natural light in photographs.
Sometimes I think about why I'm spending so much time thinking about all that.
And today I found out why.
I read a blog from Tim Ferris (Experiments in Lifestyle Design), where he says:
Creating consumes. It is all day, every day. It knows neither weekends nor vacations. It is not when we feel like it. It is habit, compulsion, obsession, vocation. The common thread that links creators is how they spend their time. No matter what you read, no matter what they claim, nearly all creators spend nearly all their time on the work of creation.
I guess if there's an addiction to be had - that's it. And while NASCAR is on in the background, here I am - thinking about photographs.
