Aaron Hockley – It Seems Everyone’s a Photographer Nowadays

As a hobbyist-turned-professional photographer, I’ve heard all sorts of folks in the photo industry lament the fact that it seems everyone thinks they’re a photographer. Whether it’s an iPhone with Hipstamatic or a sub-$500 DSLR, photography has never been more accessible and shareable. Amateurs aren’t going to put the good professionals out of business, and instead of sitting around telling the damn kids to get off their lawn, the pros should recognize how great it is that so many people are participating in such an important activity that shapes how we remember our family, our friends, and our history.
