Different not Better

Different not Better book cover

Different Not Better Your work is Different, their work is not Better.

Gaining the courage to photograph your way, with confidence.

Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery.
Jane Austin (Mansfield Park, Ch. 48)

This is an unashamedly positive work. It is full of motivational and uplifting quotations that happen to be well-researched (and true). There are no Internet kittens here, instead we have truth, beauty and understanding.

Nihil simul inventum est et perfectum.
Nothing is invented and perfected at the same moment. — Marcus Tullius Cicero (attributed)


How to look at, and think about, our work without reference to the arbitrary and often negative rules of others. Learn to understand that our photographic work is a form of artistic expression, and that the work of others is not necessarily better than ours, but is different to ours. With sections on understanding and interpreting criticism, motivation, confidence, recognition and style. This is a book for those that see, or want to see themselves as more an artist than a photographic technician. This book does not care what kind of camera you use, digital, film or phone is immaterial.
