We’ve collected the best Photo Quotes from the greatest minds of the world: Tejaswi Madivada, Theodore Robinson, Sudeep, Tyra Banks, Coco Rocha. Use them as an inspiration.
My brother, a cardiologist, was among thousands of Muslims visited by the FBI in November 2001 and forced to submit to special registration fingerprinting, his photo and information forever in Homeland Security‘s files.
I enjoy doing fashion shows and transforming myself into different looks for photo shoots.
I hate doing photo shoots.
I still do all my developing and printing in my darkroom. Being in New York, you get tremendous exposure to great arts. In my student years, I saw exhibitions of August Sander and Diane Arbus. I still go back to their pictures. I don’t really go for contemporary photo shows.
Sometimes interviews are fun and good conversations, but stuff like photo shoots and appearances at places where you have to meet a lot of people – I was never really made for this kind of stuff.
For 10 days after the Olympics, I couldn’t go back to my house because people were sitting outside waiting to take my photo. That was a bit rubbish. At first I was open: ‘Yeah, of course you can take a photo…’ but after a while, it got to the point where I thought, ‘Whoa, I don’t like this attention anymore.’
It is clear that the photo ID requirement is not a solution to a problem but is instead a political ploy to prevent traditionally disenfranchised populations from voting for the candidates of their choice.
I don’t know about the hair. I’ve had it since I was a kid, and when I look at myself in the mirror, it looks quite normal. But then when I look at myself in a photo, I realise that my hair is basically bigger than my head! There’s quite a lot of interest in my hair, which is strange, as for me, it’s normal!
In a perfect world, I would never do any interviews, and probably there would be one photo out there of me, and that would be it.
The era during which only governments could put hardware on the Moon is coming to an end. There are 26 private teams competing for the $30 million Google Lunar X-Prize – to be awarded for sending a robotic spacecraft to this nearby world that can roam at least 500 meters, and send back data such as a photo.
My least favorite thing about being in a band is photo shoots and video shoots. I like writing songs.
Social media is changing the way we communicate and the way we are perceived, both positively and negatively. Every time you post a photo, or update your status, you are contributing to your own digital footprint and personal brand.
Most major races, including the New York City Marathon, require runners to provide photo identification when picking up a bib. Most provide bibs only a few days before the race, shortening the window in which someone could copy a bib.
It was quite surreal. Me and my wife went on holiday to America and the security was really tight in the airport. And the security officer that was letting us go through to Los Angeles kept looking at my photo and then he said, ‘I know you don’t I?’ And I said ‘Do ya?’ and he said ‘You’re the guy with the bloopers’
If you think about photo sharing sites, the mobile photo sharing and social, there’s no competitive advantage, there’s no obvious business model, so I never play with anything like that. I avoid it like the plague.
When someone takes a private photo, on a private cell phone, it should remain just that: private.
My father was a small business owner. When I was growing up, he ran a one-hour photo store – back when there were one-hour photo stores.
I think the only reason I wanted to do modeling, really, was because I knew I wasn’t ready to act; I knew I didn’t have enough life experience, and I knew that doing photo shoots was a way of acting. Playing a character each shoot and being able to just emerge yourself in these awkward experiences – it was amazing.
As Conchita, I’ve got everything that I need to be glamourous and in the spotlight, giving interviews, doing photo shoots. And on the other side, there’s Tom, this shy, boring boy. And I love to be shy and boring when I’m in private.
The first time I looked at Yammer, I thought I was on Facebook. Work is not a social network, with serendipitous communications and photo collections. Work is about managing tasks and responding to things quickly.
Someone is always taking a video of me or snapping a photo.
The boy I was crazy about was super into photography, so I weaseled my way into AP Photo to impress him and spend more time with him. He never liked me back, but I ended up spending most my senior year in the darkroom – it became a sort of safe haven for me.
The very first big photo shoot I ever did was with Bruce Weber. I couldn’t believe this guy was taking my picture, so when he told me to get in the bathtub, I just did. It’s only now, looking back, that I realise, you don’t have to do everything people tell you.
When I’m doing a photo shoot, I’m not playing a part. I’m just trying to be myself.
A friend of mine kept saying, ‘You tell all these stories about John, and when you do, you say, ‘Wait a minute, I have a photo to go along with that!’ How come we never see these photos in a book?’ So, I thought maybe it’s time to put them out. It would let people see John in that world, through my eyes.
Children used to get bullied at school. Now they go home, and that’s where the problem starts – because they sit on their phones all night, thinking about who’s ‘liked’ a photo of them, who hates them, who loves them. They don’t know what’s real and what’s not, editing their lives constantly to fit other people’s views.
I guess the biggest thing I had to get used to was people staring. At first it was like, ‘Am I wearing something odd? Is there something on my face?’ It was kind of weird because when I go to the grocery store, people, they’re not necessarily coming up to me asking for a photo, they just… look at me.
I cut off my dreadlocks, but I couldn’t face throwing them away. They were so hard to grow, man. There’s a lot of work goes into those things. Some people keep a diary or a photo album to remind them of their past lives – well, I’ve got hair. Who knows? One day, maybe my grandchildren might want to see it.
The fashion industry certainly has its obscene sides. The cost of a coat can be obscene. So can the cost of a photo shoot if you’re working with a really good photographer.
I am not a big makeup buff usually, but for photo shoots and big events you do what you have to do.
Dropbox, with its emphasis on good old-fashioned hierarchies, is superb at automatically saving one original of each photo I take, whether shot with a phone or a fancy camera. No loops, no duplicates, no confusion.
I’m the test kitchen manager, which means I’m in charge of sourcing all of our ingredients and kitchen equipment. I also manage the budget, help out on photo shoots, and generally coordinate all the moving parts to keep our kitchen functional.
A lot of my best clothes I buy at photo shoots because I don’t have time to shop.
I was experimenting with ways of creating edible objects from digital content, and I was working to three criteria: 1. They had to be delicious. 2. They had to be personalized. 3. They had to fit through a letterbox or in a mailbox. After much experiments, Boomf! There it was: photo marshmallows.
I want to open an eye or two about what being an actor is really like because it’s not all red carpets and photo shoots. It’s like trying to get that job and going from job to job.
With same-day registration, no requirement for a valid, dated photo ID for voters is an invitation to fraud and corruption of our electoral process.
Instagram is a personal subscription. It’s like your own personal magazine. It’s like doing a photo shoot for no money, which is cool.
The ability to identify someone at a moment’s notice by snapping a photo of him or her, to trigger an immediate influx of data about the person behind the face, will forever change the world.
If I’m going to see people, I won’t wear heavy makeup. It’s not attractive on me. When you see those pictures on my Instagram, they are usually for when I’m doing a photo shoot or an interview.
I still have a photo on my wall of the greatest idol I will ever have in my life, and it’s myself at eight. Because that’s when the forces of imagination have the same value as the real world, when they’re an instrument of survival: when my mother disappeared, and I imagined a mother. That was me at my best.
I love attention. I love going to events and photo shoots… I enjoy it all; the clothing, the makeup, the excitement.
I kind of think that if you show conspiracy theorists a photo of the dead Bin Laden they will come up with an explanation for why it’s really a Photoshopped picture of Bin Laden asleep. Or his dead cousin Fred. Donald Trump apparently believes that Bin Laden is dead, so that ought to be enough for the Middle East.
My favorite thing about doing photo shoots is just being able to have fun, meeting new people, getting dressed up, and I just love doing it. So, I have a lot of fun.
No matter how beautiful and loved a cover may be, the jury on it remains uncommitted until the book has been in the world for a while. Perhaps bookstore buyers will be indifferent. Perhaps it will be lost on store shelves. Perhaps there’s another book or two out there using the same or a similar photo.
People may not have the right to know about your personal, private life or any detail about any potentially embarrassing photo, but they do have the right to know whether you are honest, candid and forthcoming.
The only person I have regrets about is Miles Davis. He and I had become good friends after we did a photo shoot, and coincidentally, we kept running into each other at parties and stuff. I regret not having written a hit for Miles Davis.
We could not have launched Causes without Facebook Platform, providing real identity and real friends. Facebook Platform was created so that experiences that are inherently social in our off-line lives could be brought online as an authentic expression of who we are; Facebook did this best in revolutionizing photo sharing.
Don’t attack a girl because you see one photo of her and a guy in public.
I would like to say a few things about that photo in ‘Tatler’. I have no regrets. The article was about the 20 cleverest people in England, covered up only by the thing that makes them clever. A saxophonist, for example, had only his saxophone, and an artist, his easel. So I was covered by books.
With ‘Inside Out,’ no matter how good the photo or how big the pasting, people will like it or they won’t. But what you see through any of these actions is that there’s going to be discussion and it’s going to bring people together.
It’s not my vision when I cover a woman‘s face with a chador. I got the idea from a ‘National Geographic‘ photo. I’m just showing their plight in the world.
Hollywood is crazy because if you’re working, you’re constantly working. There’s all sorts of scheduling and stuff, and maybe you have a day off, but you don’t have the whole day. You’ve got a photo shoot or whatever.
We will literally send a van and a photographer to the home of anybody that can say they can’t get a picture made and a photo ID and we will do it… at the state’s cost and the taxpayer cost and not at the individual cost.
For many years I’ve been using Swarovski accessories when styling editorial photo shoots and also for red carpet appearances.
I’m just not interested in getting judged or getting people to love me. Being seen and taking my photo and having to follow this schedule all the time, I don’t enjoy it.
We would go to photo sessions and it was just the most ridiculous stuff. It was like, ‘Here, lick on these lollipops.’ And we’re like, ‘What?!’ It was horrifying. But we would laugh.
When people come up to me and ask for a photo, ask for an autograph, I’m like ‘Me? Are you sure?’ I don’t consider myself to be a public figure. I just happen to be.
Selfies became too big. The selfie photos are not good. Fans ask me for a selfie, and I say, ‘Let’s just do a photo.’ I’m not anti-selfie, but I like a classic photograph.
The Clintons use black people for votes but then don’t do anything for black communities after they’re elected. They use us for photo ops.
I enjoy clothes. My mother tells me how, even as a kid, I used to choose my own clothes. I have a feel for it, and I do the costume coordination for my photo shoots as well. Many a time, even my characters wear the clothes I choose.
There are photographers who don’t really engage with their subject. It’s a really unfortunate phrase, but they take their photo and they leave with it. It works but I think it ultimately limits how profound the work can be.
With Internet technology you can capture a photo, a quote, or an article, store it locally and upload it into the Net more than once, if you wish, to multiple sites. Can you imagine then forcing the search engines to somehow not index that information?
I think the time when I really got freaked out was when Tom Hardy came up to me and said ‘Scarlett, can I have a photo?’
I was at a photo shoot, and I was wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, ‘Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.’ And then they took it away. I was really affected by that. The whole thing made me realize that I do want a cross with me at all times.
A lot of times as an actor you watch a film it’s like thumbing through a photo book from your past. It’s people you haven’t seen in a while, there are people that have passed away, and there are people you owe phone calls to.
I’ve realised that there’s art in everything we do in London. Suddenly, a photo of two boys sitting on a wall in tracksuits with a dog can go online and be considered a sick photo. That’s what we’ve done to London.
I like to think of an image as different from a photo.
I have no time for real horses, so I have a plastic horse. Large size. Called Max Von Sydow. For photographs it looks real. If I do a photo shoot and it stands in the background, you think it’s a horse. A horse is a horse.
The future is in photos for social media. More and more people are not reading, so I try to attach a photo to most Tweets.
Google Photos is great. I enjoy using it to curate my photo collection online. The integration on iOS to Apple Photos is a bit too much voodoo for me.
Polaroids were the instant thing to get a photo back when I started it. You had to wait two days to get your film back if you had a real camera, and I was more of an instant-gratification guy.
If you go to the supermarket and buy a package of food and look at the photo on the front, the food never looks like that inside, does it? That is a fundamental lie we are sold every day.
In photo shoots, I rely on instinct. Which is not to say I don’t bring ideas to a project or consider it beforehand.
Always point your finger at the chest of the person with whom you are being photographed. You will appear dynamic. And no photo editor can crop you from the picture.
I saw James Ellsworth at an independent wrestling show where I was signing autographs, so I took a photo with him and put up a post on Facebook called ‘The night I met James Ellsworth.’ Just by nature of how popular that post was, how many comments there were and likes and shares, I was like, ‘people love this kid.’
It could be that all awful dictators are frustrated artists – Mao with his poetry and Mussolini with his monuments. Stalin was once a journalistic hack, and I can personally testify to how frustrated they are. Pol Pot left a very edgy photo collection behind. And Osama seems quite interested in video.
Kevin Systrom of Instagram used to work for us as a consultant in the early days of Mint. I knew him a long time ago. Maybe I could have gotten in there. But with photo sharing, I don’t know if there’s an obvious business model. I don’t think there’s a competitive, sustainable advantage.
I have my insecurities, and some days you don’t want to be photographed. You notice all of your flaws even if others don’t notice them. Photo shoots also feel very vain because it’s all about you and your looks and your face. I feel I work better on camera.
Once you join the queue for the immigration line, pay attention to what the expeditor tells you. Have your papers ready. Don’t have your cell phone out. Take off your hat. Open your passport to the page with your photo and present it to the immigration officer already open.
If somebody asks for a photo, with a smile, it is nothing.
Most actors don’t like doing still photo shoots, but I love them. I’m very comfortable, and I enjoy the clothes, looking good, and freezing the moment.
In the music business, I found it was much more about interviews, photo shoots and appearances rather than actual performing, which I do best.
There is an intimacy and trust that is needed between leaders, between their assistants and advisers. Usually, you have the real substance behind closed doors; and the press conferences, you have niceties, nice photo ops.
But to me, the most important page in my daughter’s book is the last one – because it’s blank. It says ‘Your Hero‘s Photo Here,’ and ‘Your Hero’s Story Here.’
Because I’m a bald, dim-witted writer, people think I couldn’t possibly be her husband, so they occasionally confuse me for someone more glamorous. At O’Hare airport, a man asked if he could take Rebecca’s photo. When I reflexively stepped away, he said, ‘No, no, no. I want your picture too, Andre Agassi.’
I love experimenting with clothes for photo shoots, but when I’m onstage, I want to show people that there are other options. You can just be yourself and still make good music.
If someone comes up to me and asks me for a photo, if they do it politely, I’m always going to say yes.
My mom likes getting her photo taken.
As an organizer in the most underrepresented communities in my state, I have felt the frustration that so many voters must feel when other states limit polling locations, require photo IDs, and put unnecessary barriers in front of voters.
I go to all these photo shoots, and each time I figure out something new about myself and what I want to wear.
Sometimes people are very not sure of themselves, so you really have to give them that confidence. Even models – they need to warm up sometimes on photo shoots.
Every time I see the rails of my photo shoots, it’s like Dr. Seuss, or as if they’ve skinned Muppets.
The Democratic Party does not want anybody to have a photo ID because that would have a very negative impact on cheating! If you require a photo ID, that pretty much shuts out cheating. Well, it doesn’t shut it out. It just makes it harder, and that’s why they don’t want it.
If I go out with no make-up and a tracksuit on, nobody comes up to me. And if they do, I won’t do a photo because I wouldn’t want any photographic evidence.
I love photo sessions. I’m alone, I’m the queen, everyone’s taking care of me.
It’s lovely to be considered pretty and lovely to do photo shoots, and I just love fashion. But I’m proud that I did the characters I wanted to do.
You can always tell folks from nonfolks. Folks like to feel good, like to smile for the camera when there’s a big photo opportunity for a really good cause.
I am just doing photo shoots. It’s not something that extraordinary. I’m not a great artist, I’m not writing books, I’m not a painter, and people in the streets ask me for a picture or a note, and I say, ‘Why?’
Every night, I don’t care if I’m doing interviews that day or photo shoots that day, what’s most important is that I’m making sure I’m right and tight for the show. These people all come out to see me, so I have to perform and make sure that they never forget it.
I was more of a commercial model. I wasn’t into ramp walks or photo shoots.
Singing is the rawest thing. Having been naked in films or naked in photo shoots, it’s nothing compared to singing. It’s absolute nakedness. You are stripped bare! It’s very strange. Acting seems much easier, in fact, because you are putting on a costume – whereas here, you are taking everything off.
We’ve come to expect so little from online privacy measures that public displays of concern about the matter are more or less for show. Being devastated to discover you’ve been tagged in somebody else’s photo has an air of the melodramatic about it at this point.
I’m very self-conscious having my picture taken, so I clown around. My driver‘s license photo looks like a blonde Elvis.
People sometimes come up to me, and it’s like they just want to capture Passenger. I feel like Pikachu. Sometimes, in the more sort of depressing moments, it feels like it’s not about the music, it’s just about the photo, and that really worries me.
I can look at a photo and the dimensions of any piece and tell you if it’s going to sit well with the four other pieces in your room.
If your family was part of the movie business, then watching ‘Moguls & Movie Stars‘ is like looking at the family photo album: hilarious to members of the family, numbingly boring to those outside the family circle.
Building outrageous expectations about the next big thing – be it a personal video chatting service or venue-based photo sharing app – can create all sorts of complications when things don’t go as planned.
I don’t have to think much when I take a photo on my iPhone. I sort of see the iPhone medium as instant gratification, whereas with film, you have to think about it because it’s expensive.
Nobody wants to see an engagement photo with you in your ratty jeans and t-shirt. Go for layers, and you’re always going to look like you made more of an effort.
Madonna is her own Hollywood studio – a popelike mogul and divine superstar in one. She has a laserlike instinct for publicity, aided by her visual genius for still photography (which none of her legion of imitators has). Unfortunately, her public life has dissolved into a series of staged photo ops.
What I can’t tell with a photo I will tell with a painting, and what I can’t tell with a painting I will tell with a video or text sometimes, et cetera.
The United States Supreme Court has voted 6-3 that voter photo ID is constitutional.
