Quote of the Day

“Do you smoke? If you want to be a good photographer, if you want to be, let’s say, a good lawyer, if you want to be really good at anything, you have to be addicted to what you do. I am addicted to photography as I am addicted to cigarettes.”

– Said Adi Weda, a guest lecturer in class today, when asked about tips for being a successful photojournalist. He is an Indonesian photographer working in EPA (European Pressphoto Agency), after having worked before in AFP. Rephrased for clarity and dramatic effect.
