Why are you creative? Your opinion and input required

Lately I’ve been struggling to answer this question lately. They are many reasons as to why.

I’ve always praised myself on being self motivated but lately my inspiration along with my motivation have simply dwindled. Since then, I’ve been asking myself why am I creative?

I’ve never thought of myself as a creative before I picked up a camera. Even then, I had never crossed my mind that I could ever be creative with whatever I capture which meant that I had to learn.

I am still baffled at some work that I come across. I am both inspired and intrigued as what we are all capable of creating when we put our mind to it.

This question is not just for photographers but for all the creatives out there. Some of us use a pen as our tool of choice to be creative, others use cameras while others use instruments, acting music and so many more..

So I put it to you –  Why are you creative?

– What motivates you?




I am a photographer currently living in London. Most of my work is in black and white because which I've found to be the best outlet to express myself. With patience a rather unique way of seeing the beauty around me, I enjoy creating a world that is unique to me.
