100 Most Inspirational Photography Quotes of All Time (2023)

In this article, we have put together a collection of the most inspirational photography quotes of all time from some of the most famous artists, photographers and writers in history. As photographers, we often lack the motivation to keep taking images, something all artists struggle with from time to time.

While looking at inspirational work of other photographers can sometimes give us the boost we need, it can also be detrimental in boosting our creativity. In such situations, the extra kick of energy and inspiration can come in the form of quotes from photographers who have gone through similar struggles in their lives. Let’s take a look at some of the most inspirational photography quotes, some of which we consider to be timeless.

We will start from one of my most favorite quotes from the photography legend, Ansel Adams:

1. There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.

Ansel Adams

A good photograph is one that is able to grab the attention of the viewer and bring out their emotions – there is no secret recipe or a universal rule that can be applied to make a bad photograph look instantly better.

2. If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.

Robert Capa

This famous quote by Robert Capa doesn’t just apply to portrait photography. If you want to make a photo look more interesting, sometimes all that’s needed is a change of perspective.

3. To consult the rules of composition before making a picture is a little like consulting the law of gravitation before going for a walk.

Edward Weston

4. To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Another famous quote from Ansel Adams that summarizes what goes into making a photograph:

5. You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.

Ansel Adams

So true – each photograph that we make is a reflection of who we are and the experiences we have had in our lives!

6. To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

I love the next quote from one of my most favorite portrait photographers, Gregory Heisler:

7. All the planning, intuition, technical prowess, and knowledge, as well as the trust and rapport you have (or haven’t) established, will show up in the picture, frozen forever.

Gregory Heisler

I highlighted this quote while reading his book “50 Portraits“, which is an excellent read that I highly recommend for our readers.

Another quote from my favorite portrait and landscape photographer and a dear friend, Jack Dykinga:

8. A photojournalist makes snap decisions; based on the ability to quickly assess situations and record one’s perceived truth.

Jack Dykinga

If you haven’t had a chance to read his “A Photographer’s Life” book, I highly recommend checking it out. You will be fascinated by Jack’s life story and what it took to become who he is today.

9. What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.

Karl Lagerfeld

10. When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!

Ted Grant

11. A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.

Diane Arbus

12. All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt

Susan Sontag

Whenever anyone tells you that you don’t have the right camera gear, always refer them to this particular quote from Ansel Adams:

13. The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it!


Ansel Adams

While camera gear is important, it is the photographer that makes a picture at the end of the day, not the camera.

An excellent quote from Henri Cartier-Bresson that refers to the “ten thousand rule”:

14. Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

15. For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

16. When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.

Robert Frank

The following is a quote from one of the pages of David duChemin’s excellent book “Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision“:

17. Without vision, the photographer perishes.

David duChemin

A lot has been said about having photographic vision by many photographers, but this one is short and right to the point.

18. A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.

Annie Leibovitz

19. Photography is all about secrets. The secrets we all have and will never tell.

Kim Edwards

There is clear difference between taking a picture (which often results in nothing more than a snapshot), and making a picture – where you put all effort into it, from the moment you capture the image, all the way to post-processing. The following quote from Ansel Adams says it all:

20. You don’t take a photograph, you make it.

Ansel Adams

21. There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph.

Robert Heinecken

As photographers, we want the latest and greatest gear in order to get the sharpest picture possible. The following quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson says that sharpness is not all that important:

22. Sharpness is a bourgeois concept.

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Here is another quote by Ansel Adams on other factors being more important than just sharpness:

23. There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept.

Ansel Adams

24. The eye should learn to listen before it looks.

Robert Frank

25. Art is what we call…the thing an artist does. It’s not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human. Art is not in the …eye of the beholder. It’s in the soul of the artist.

Seth Godin

26. Photographs are a way of imprisoning reality…One can’t possess reality, one can possess images–one can’t possess the present but one can possess the past.

Susan Sontag

27. A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.

Ansel Adams

28. The painter constructs, the photographer discloses.

Susan Sontag

29. What the Photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once: the Photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially.

Roland Barthes

30. I used to think that I could never lose anyone if I photographed them enough. In fact, my pictures show me how much I’ve lost.

Nan Goldin

31. A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you.

Brigitte Bardot

32. The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.

Dorothea Lange

I love this quote by Elliott Erwitt:

33. The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.

Elliott Erwitt

A picture is worth a thousand words!

34. Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference.

Robert Frank

35. For me, the subject of the picture is always more important than the picture.

Diane Arbus

36. Don’t pack up your camera until you’ve left the location.

Joe McNally

37. To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

Elliott Erwitt

38. Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.

David Alan Harvey

39. No, you don’t shoot things. You capture them. Photography means painting with light. And that’s what you do. You paint a picture only by adding light to the things you see.

Katja Michael

40. My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph.

Richard Avedon

41. Sometimes one waits too long for the perfect moment before snapping the picture. You never realize that you needed was to change perspective.

Miguel Syjuco

42. The world moves fast, changing everything around us with each new day. Photography is a gift that can keep us in a moment forever, blissfully eternal.

Ali Novak

43. There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.

Robert Frank

44. It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.

Paul Caponigro

45. A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.

Irving Penn

Another personal favorite by the famous artist Joan Miró:

46. You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.

Joan Miro

This is so true. Some pictures look beautiful and you might enjoy looking at them for a period of time, but you forget them very quickly, while truly powerful images stick in your head for the rest of your life even if you have seen them only once.

47. The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.

Andy Warhol

48. 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.

Annie Leibovitz

Alfred Eisenstaedt
