I just don’t understand how some people can undervalue photographers. Why do one wants to get paid for taking “pictures”? Even some people that take “pictures” think that’s normal. Good photography is an art just like any other art, it takes skill, be it composition, knowledge of gear, lights, whatever it might be. I love what I do but taking “pictures” for free is a hobby, creating images with passion and love is an art. If you love it and value how much it took to create it you should pay for it. Value the artist in this simple way, by paying for the at they created.
