YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FOR YOUR WORK – EVERYBODY HAS TO. YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO GET KNOCKED DOWN AND STAND BACK UP. YOU CAN’T LET IT STAY ON YOUR SHOULDERS. I SEE A LOT OF PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO DO THEIR THING AND PUT THEIR SOUL IN IT AND IN THE END IT IS ALL CHANGED, BUT THEIR NAME IS STILL ON IT. SO I DO WHAT DICK AVEDON TOLD ME ONCE AND I JUST GO OUT ON EACH JOB AND TAKE PICTURES FOR MYSELF. I’LL PHOTOGRAPH TREES OR IF I MEET A REALLY HANDSOME GUY OR GIRL I’LL TAKE THEIR PICTURE, EVEN IF THEY’RE NOT PART OF THE SET. I’M GOING TO TRY TO LEARN SOMETHING. EVEN IF A PICTURE IS NOT SO GOOD, AT LEAST I CAN GO BACK TO BED AT NIGHT AND THINK: “WOW, DID I LEARN SOMETHING TODAY? - BRUCE WEBER
