Here in Italy it's always been like that (at least since when i started living in this planet). Many of us (not me) have the recipe for winning world cup in all sports. Just to make an example. I'm a rugby man. Started to play in 1980 and stopped in 2000. Since then i followed a number of basic lessons to teach the game to children (up to 12 yrs.). That's what i'm doing now (Teaching rugby to children). I may say i know the matter (rugby) to a certain degree. Most of the Italians are familiarizing with the odd-shaped ball in recent times. Many of them ignore at least 80'% of the rules and 99,99% of the rest (skills, training tecniques,tactic,etc...etc...). Most of the times when someone approaches me asking about the game, the six-nations,etc...he/she ends up with the perfect recipe to win the next 27 grand slams........
When it comes to photography it's even worse "Rolls are no longer available...Kodak has finshed its business....." ....... "Would you give me the pictures you've just taken ? (i own a contax s2) here is the USB key...."
It's a small world
That fits the modus operandi of one Ms Emma Harrison along with the rest of the sycophants and malingerers working in that "industry".

It's how picking up in bars was done in the good old days!
I believe it's how picking up in bars is accomplished, still.

So I'm assuming you hated the movie Catch Me If You Can?
I think a good collective noun would be "a diarrhoea of bullshitters".

Obviously the credential they were looking for was the ability to produce work, not a degree or experience per-se.
the funny thing is ... it is just as true 130 years ago as it is today
usually you can't get commissioned work without a portfolio of work
to show that you can do more than draw or photograph or whatever ...
and you can't get the commissioned work without having experience doing it ...
as a photographer seeking freelance employment, perspective employers don't really care about
personal work, although it does make for interesting conversations, they want to know who you worked for
did the work get finished on time and was done as expected, they want to see "tear sheets" ...
what FLW did was lie about his portfolio, he said he designed houses for people he never did
and the people who hired him didn't bother to contact his previous "clients" to see if he was FOS ...
he got the commission, and the rest was history.
as scott said, there is a lot of difference between doing renderings and line drawings and actually building something that exists ...
i always got a chuckle out of the emblem for " the school of mines " (architecture school before it was called architecture school)
it is a golden shovel ... and, it suited frank lloyd wright well
