Jim Balog, a #photography mentor and great friend of mine, once said that you should never be satisfied with the image you’re making. By that I think he means that you should never stop pushing yourself. Don’t put down the #camera and head back to #camp for dinner, even though it was a long day, before the sun has set and all the light is absolutely gone. The value in Jim’s advice is that it forces you to stay out there and be in position to witness those interesting moments of change—the transition from day to night, or even the transition from a #climber on the #summit to a regular guy back on the ground.You need to push yourself mentally, physically and creatively to #capture those #moments. It always seems to involve some degree of discomfort, if not downright suffering, too. Never be satisfied and never call it a day before the day is done. I believe that that is what it takes to create any lasting #photograph that stands the test of time.
