Q. Is everyone a photographer? Or is it that everyone has a camera?

Interesting insight on the explosion of cameras and the impact on photographers, from Faby and Carlo, of the U.K. ...

"Saying that everyone is a photographer implies that everyone has the technical and psychological know how to take amazing photographs. Now, correct me if I am wrong, but it takes time and energy and a lot of experience to know how to handle a camera. It takes even longer to be able to master the camera while directing a subject. It takes even more experience to feel confident enough to master the technicalities, directing a subject and capturing the right moment at the same time."

"Isn’t it then that the issue moves from “everyone is a photographer” to “everyone has a camera“? Then the comparison camera/oven with photographer/cook is more than ever correct. I bet my oven can be use to bake the most amazing dishes in the world, but it does not mean I know how to use it properly."

Take a look at some of their 'before and after' examples and you'll see what they mean, at Faby and Carlo Photography
