mmm. i hate people introducing themselves like “Hi, I’m XX and like … I’m a photographer. and so is my girl/boy/friend. “
First of all we are in studio/on set and i can see you have a camera in your hand and yes i know, but please stop that “i’m le photographer” shit. I can see it all over your face, alright. and plus, i don’t care about your boyfriend/girlfriend, i’m not your best friend. and i know, you KNOW who i am, cause YOU added me on facebook, and i know you know i know you are a “photographer”. holly crap. and being so damn serious about yourself. and your photography, when you’ve NEVER tried anything new. anything with even the smallest possibility of failing. so yes, you must be such a dare. mmm. makes me want to get to know you better.
i don’t know what’s wrong with me, but i’ll never introduce myself as a photographer. i’m me and i’ll stay that way until i’m really good at something(and i’ll probably never stop searching) and than i’ll be still me, just that OTHERS will recognize me as something else too. nah well, the world is full of “photographers” so i might as well give up on nagging about it.
