This film might rub some people the wrong way. Others might find it enlightening. But the underlying theme of this film is positivity. There are still people doing well in photography, from both the online and traditional industries, and for that, we have to be thankful. But there is also a lot of strange data in regard to what being a professional is, how the business operates and how photographers are viewed by those handing out assignments. I have a feeling this might become a series as I think this information might be surprising for some folks but also because the industry keeps evolving or devolving depending on your point of view.
Just the cost to print and frame two of my photos for a local juried exhibit was enough to convince me to stay in my amateur lane. And thanks for the Palm Springs mention, wasn’t aware of it.
I’m about to frame two new pieces I’ve acquired. Won’t be cheap.
There’s a lot to mull over here. How’s that for a genius comment?
Who doesn’t like to mull?
