A person of "knowledge" asked me today what kind of photographer I am. I said "I don't know" He said "How can you not know what kind of photographer you are?" I said "Well...I know what kind of photographer I'm not. " He had an incredulous look on his face as i continued...I said "I'm not a fashion, corporate, wedding, public relations, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah or portrait photographer. I'm not a journalist, celebrity, advertising, editorial, sports, news, landscape or under-water photographer." I continued "I'm also not a still life, stock, street, conceptual, fine art, medical, forensic or boudoir photographer." I told him "I'm just a plain old photographer." He seemed annoyed and changed the subject.
