Passion. It’s what takes things from one level to another. From: “I like doing it” to “I love doing it and cannot stop talking about it”. If you have a hobby and do it without passion. Well, you probably won’t do it for long and probably won’t excel and flourish. However, if you’re passionate about whatever it is you’re doing, you start thinking out of the box, beyond boundaries – you will find yourself in a place of: “No matter what, I will try it and make it happen.”
Well, this basically describes why we do what we do. We’re passionate. We’re passionate about photography, we’re passionate about videography. We love cameras and the things you can create with it. The products we develop mostly come out of our own needs. That, we think, is very helpful to ensure that something in the end is actually solving specific problems. And in best case, helps you, whether you’re a professional, hobby photographer or filmmaker, to flourish in what you’re doing.
We believe the Foolography products do that. But there are definitely other products out there that are awesome and incredibly helpful. This is why we want to introduce another new series that we will continue over time: “What’s new?” This is a place where we introduce new gadgets, have a look at cool products or try out helpful software.
