Just wanted to share a fabulous interview with super photographer Martin Schoeller, courtesy of LensCulture. In it, he shares the secret to making intimate portraits and some incredibly inspiring advice for new photographers:

“Get off your phones and computers—they don’t take good pictures. Everybody is so obsessed with them now; we are all turning into constant consumers. Original ideas come from experiences and the people around you…produce a lot of work, rather than spending your days retouching mediocre images. Don’t spend too much time looking at other people’s work, it just makes one feel that everything has been done.”

Yes!!
