Hi Pics Aerial Photography’ Philosophy is as follows ;

  • Its not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see when you are looking.

    Henry David Thoreau (Writer/Philosopher)
  • A photograph is always invisible, it is not it that we see.

    Roland Barthes (Philosopher)
  • You cannot depend on your eyes if your imagination is out of focus.

    Mark Twain (Writer)
  • Photography is truth. A film is truth 24 times per second.

    Jean-Luc Godard (Filmmaker)
  • There is nothing in this world that does not have a decisive moment.

    Cardinal de Retx (17th century something...)
  • Owning a flying camera does not make you a photographer. It makes you a flying camera owner.

  • The important thing is not the camera that you look through but the eye that you see with.

    Alfred Eisenstaedt (Photographer)
  • Photography is the power of observation, not the application of technology.

    Ken Rockwell (Photographer)
  • Our pictures are our footprints. It’s the best way to tell people we were here.

    Joe McNally (Photographer)
  • If it makes you laugh, if it makes you cry, if it rips out your heart, that’s a good picture.

    Eddie Adams (Photographer)
  • Everyone will take one great picture, I’ve done better because I’ve taken two.

    David Bailey (Photographer)
  • There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

    Colin Powell (Former United States Secretary of State)
  • When you make mistakes, it’s best to admit them quickly, and get on with  your other innovations.

    Steve Jobs (Co-founder of Apple)
  • We’re all working together with common objectives; that’s the secret.

    Sam Walton (Founder of Walmart)
  • Disneyland is a work of love. We didn’t go into Disneyland just with the idea of making money.

    Walt Disney (Don't admit you don't know...)
  • The opportunity to do great things is often lost by deliberating.

    Publilius Syrus (Writer 50 years BC)
  • The common question is, ‘why?’ That’s a good question, but an equally valid question is, ‘why not?’

    Jeff Bezos (Founder of Amazon)
  • I’m not a driven businessman, but a driven artist. I never think about money. Art makes money.

    Lord Acton (English Catholic historian, politician, and writer.)
  • Intellectual property has the shelf life of a banana. Do it now………. 

    Bill Gates (Founder of Microsoft)
  • Hell, there are no rules here – we’re trying to accomplish something.

    Thomas A. Edison (Electric light bulb inventor)
  • Web users want to get at data quickly and easily. They don’t care about sites with pretty design.

    Tim Berners-Lee (Invented the World Wide Web)
  • I get to play golf for a living. What more can you ask for – getting paid for doing what you love.

    Tiger Woods (Golfer)
  • Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.

    Don McCullin (Photographer)
  • Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

    Aaron Siskind (Photographer)
  • The word ‘art’ is very slippery. It really has no importance in relation to one’s work. I work for the pleasure, for the pleasure of the work, and everything else is a matter for the critics.

    Manuel Alvarez Bravo (Photographer)
  • Anyone who has lost track of time when using a computer knows the propensity to dream, the urge to make dreams come true and the tendency to miss lunch.

    Tim Berners-Lee (Invented the World Wide Web)
  • Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.

    Peter Lindbergh (Photographer)
  • Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.

    Gary Ryan Blair (Visionary and conceptual thinker)
