Everyone has a calling, some for fashion, some for business, some for art, but whatever their calling the most important thing that they can do is to recognize it and grasp a hold of their opportunities to create a future they can be passionate about. The field of photography is one in which it is highly important for an individual to forge their own path and to create their own unique identity. Photography is an art that is spread across such a wide variety of businesses such as fashion, art, advertising, food, travel, interiors, products, people, and the list goes on. In forging their career path a photographer must discover in which field their path lies; they must discover their true passion.

I’m that person with a hundred photos of every event, trip etc and while I don’t consider myself a photographer by any means, I nevertheless can appreciate some good photography (or at least what I find interesting). There’s a lot of great photographers that collaborate with derooted, and Simon’s imminent involvement with CONTACT has loosely inspired my post today. Its more inspired by the concept of non-traditional photography and showcasing it using new mediums. Stop Motion animation is certainly nothing new. However, what was once rather limited for the guy/girl at home has become far more accessible. All u need is a decent camera, a huge SD card, a great idea, some degree of computer skills are a plus but not necessary, and in most cases A LOT OF TIME ON YOUR HANDS!
