What happens when your desire for Photography has SUDDENLY DISAPPEARED.

And really, what do you do about it.

Do you carry on regardless,

Or perhaps, look to others for inspiration?

Do you sink into the depths of murky despair.


 The desire to create can just suddenly leave us of it’s own accord.

But why?

For Women Photographers, it’s hard trying to juggle looking after the family,

The house, themselves as well as having a creative outlet.

More so than Men who don’t tend to have these responsibilities if they are married.


Or perhaps the desire has left with a feeling of defeat.

I can’t compete with all these other great photographers.


Perhaps the feeling of defeat is combined with the fact of having to travel long distances,

To photograph that which you desire.

After awhile it can wear you down, and you just give up in defeat.


Well, I’ve just had enough, it doesn’t interest me anymore.


So many reasons can lead to your desire to create disappear.

Illness, stress, worry!

There is usually an underlying reason for this, and if you are not sure what it is,

Sit down and have a think, try to see where it first started and what led to it.

Perhaps re – evaluating your circumstances and priorities might help.



Just take a break.

There is nothing wrong with this, and a lot of the time it can actually help to see things,

More clearly and with a new perspective.

  1. I think it’s normal that from time to time something prevented the flow of creativity. No one can constantly create. It’s better to take a rest, because leisure (I don’t know if this is the right translation of the german word “MUßE”) is the condition for creativity. No stress, no trouble, no constraint. Creativity is a bird coming only when the place to land is perfect! 🙂
