I may have already posted this in last years mini blogs. I couldn't remember the word until reminded by e, so it shouldn't be a surprise that I can not remember if this topic has already been posted. Hopefully posting it this time will cement the coming term to my memory. I am introduced as, or asked often, if I am a professional photographer. Something about this term does not sit well with me. This is one of those things that I can not really put in to clear terms, but it immediately does not sit well in my ears and never comes from my mouth. I am not and not sure I would ever desire to be or to be called a professional photographer. So this leaves me searching for words or a word to define what you see that I do. It is I believe photography. You might have suggestions, but I recently came upon one I am comfortable with, short of just simply a photographer.
I am an independent photographer.
