The Essay on Creativity for Fashion Photographer.

Creativity is the basis of self-expression. Why are some people supposedly more creative than others, and why can’t others open themselves up enough to be able to express who they are?

Creation is the birth of something, and something cannot come from nothing. When someone creates something: a painting, a poem, a photograph, the creativity comes from an idea, from a feeling, from emotion, or from a combination of ideas, feelings and emotions that are somehow “reborn” from all our experiences and perspectives.

Creativity is the desire to express ourselves. To formulate these expressions, we have to draw from our “reservoir” of experience, dreams, desires, and experimentation and mix together what was, what is, and what could be  I don’t think you can learn it, it is rather something that evolves. Your perception of everything in your life fills up this reservoir.

**Photographer ,or Fashion Photographers shoot fashion models ,fashion campaigns which are all commercial works, the campaigns every season seem to be getting repetitive, losing the real spirits .  Creativity sometimes is to be with beauty and aesthetics, beauty without unique characteristics are merely a pretty face which cannot express itself. Same as photographer,one without desire to express himself and his perspective toward the style within fashion are merely repeating,copying works already have been done for hundred times .*peterlindbergh19

Some people are drawn to create and express themselves, others are drawn to reflect, to analyze. But in the end, they all could be creative if they had the desire to explore the way in which they are integrated in the world of their experiences. Because creativity is really a rebirth, a true tone we feel for ourselves and for our world. Then our work becomes a real part of who we are. Maybe all this is a question of how deep we are willing to go
