In this week’s podcast, we talk about what you are doing with your work. A lot of photographers seem to be capturing more and more images, and that has gotten me to wonder about what is happening with all of those images. I am not harkening back to a better time in photography, because I think this problem has always existed. Once you have created your images, what do you ultimately do with them? What is their ongoing purpose? There are so many ways to share and see photographs now than in the past, but has that really changed what we do with them?

As I got to looking at my own images, I realized how little time I was spending with my work, both new and old. Once an image was shared or printed and put in a box, what really becomes of it? Does it end up effecting our creativity in some way? Does it impact how we create? Does it have us recreate the same sins over and over again. So, I guess as I cleaned up my office this week it got me thinking that there has to be a better way of relating to my work then creating piles and boxes of prints. As you look at your own work, think about what goals you really have for the work. Do you want to give prints away, win a photo competition, be in your favorite magazine, or get a gallery show. Once you know your goals it is so much easy to work towards them.
