As of today February 2, 2015, I am no longer a “Photographer”. It has been a great experience but the brand is over-emphasized. When you buy a violin, “you own a violin” and one doesn’t just become a “violinist” without years of practice, just as buying paint supplies does not make one a painter. Buying a camera today makes one a photographer. I have no issue except all are in the same category from newbie to professional.
So, as of today, I am now a Photoartist. I make art, with my camera as one of my tools. Wayne Miller Photoartist, M.Photog. Cr,. CPP
