Hi my name is Tony, I take pictures more as a hobby. Being a photographer for "business reasons" seems too paradoxical for me to pursue as I feel going professional would ruin my creativity and destroy my imagination because of the uncreative and greedy "realities" associated with making a profit. Plus, it always seems that artist get exploited by others with the money to make the world notice it which I think is a horrible injustice. But again, in another irony, it is this injustice that often times inspires us to express any art with our emotions. Emotion, to me, the most critical component of any work of art.
