As a photographer and author, I often wonder if people really appreciate the lengths we go to take a good photograph, or write a book. Quite simply, they just don't happen. You make them happen.
Photographers are known for seeing the world through a lens. While anyone can be a photographer with a smartphone, true photographers go one step further. For that perfect frame, they are willing to wait, stalk, contort, and brave the elements. See how these brave folk go to extreme lengths to show you the world in a different way.
Clancy's comment: Yep, it's all about perception, and doing whatever it takes to get what you want.
