    Unless you are looking for breatharians - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inedia

    YAWN

    the same can be said of photographers who use analog materials, they all identify themselves as photographers ...
    not sure what your point is ?

There must be some, can someone enlighten me with a few names I could google?
    You're kidding right?

    There are many great photographers who are using digital. If you cannot find them, it's because you choose not to.

    Couldn't watch the whole thing, but I applaud them for making it. Yeah, it has that kind of "film is a lifestyle, maaan" college drop out vibe, but still of value.

    The reason you won't see the same kind of video with established art/commercial photographers is there's a tendency for them to appear like adverts. And I can imagine the big guys have to protect their credibility with their audiences.

    Popular art photographers like Todd Hido, who shoot solely Portra, and may even have some kind of relationship with the company, admittedly, have the biggest marketing power. You have to wonder why Kodak doesn't at least try to work with this in some subtle way.

    Michael Wolf, Burtynsky does now I believe, Gregory Crewdson, Lauren Marsolier, David Eustace for more conservative tastes. To name a few I've been looking at recently.

    Thanks, and I would agree with you about Burtynsky, but not the others.
