”A camera is just a tool. A carpenter using a hammer and me using a hammer are going to get different results. I can use a hammer but I don’t know how to make a table. For me it’s not about the camera, it’s about the skill and the storytelling ability.”

I see so many people — especially parents — with DSLR cameras all set to “Auto”. In my opinion, they’ve bought very expensive point-n-shoot cameras.

How many people come up to me and say, “Oh, your camera’s nice. I bet it takes great photos.” Yeah, it does. Because I’m using it. No one would say to a dentist, “Oh your drill must do great root canals.” Photojournalists aren’t replaceable. Photography isn’t about smarts, it’s about feeling and understanding emotions. Some reporters are really good at that, but most of them aren’t.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

Somewhere in the woods, streams and streets of Montgomery Township, Rocky Hill and Princeton Township, there is a Caribbean-American man walking around with a camera. Or maybe he’s at home sipping a brew from a nearby craft ale brewery.
