This is my camera. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My camera is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life.

My camera, without me, is useless. Without my camera, I am useless. I must shoot my camera true. I must shoot straighter than my rival who is trying to outshoot me. I must capture before they capture. I will…

My camera and I know that what counts in photography is not the number of frames we capture, the speed of our burst mode, or the megapixels we make. We know that it is the keepers that count. We will capture…

My camera is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its lens and its body. I will keep my camera clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…

Before God, I swear this creed. My camera and I are the eyes of this generation. We are the masters of life’s moments. We are the savers of our lives.

So be it, until all of life is captured and there are no missed moments, but beautiful memories!
