Photography can be different things to different people:
Holiday or party snaps and family memorabilia; illustration, media and journalism; or a compelling activity and creative art form. For me personally, it's very much the latter.
I'm inspired mostly by landscape, nature, objective abstract and architecture; and whilst I can appreciate, and teach other genres, I'm somewhat uninspired by fashion, events and other such matter-of-fact photography.
For me, photography is an observational and creative art - like painting, but with different tools.
