Inspiration from Jay Maisel

"All good photographers go out and they fail. They will always regret what they miss."

"If you're not your own severest critic. You're your own worst enemy."

"If it doesn't excite you, this thing that you see, then why in the world would it excite me?"

"If someone comes to me and says, 'All your work is shit.' I'm not gonna stop. I'm gonna keep on going."

These are a few photography quotes from Jay Maisel found in this video:
