    People tend these days tend to define themselves by not what they do as a regular job to make a living, but by their leisure activity s where they can be whatever they want to be, whether real or fantasy.

    The other morning, my 12 year old daughter and I were walking around town. She had my OM-1 and was in the middle of photographing something, when she announced that she is most likely going to be a "filmographer". I just smiled an told her that would be a wonderful undertaking, and there was no reason to wait to grow up to do it. I rather like that title.

    I called myself one today. I really didn't mean to; it just sort of slipped out to increase the clarity and brevity of a sentence I was delivering. I really hope I did not offend anybody by getting too far ahead of myself...

    In death I hope to be remembered as a photographer.

    When someone picks up the knowledge of the craft of photography and understates how to operate a camera and a light meter without any aid from the camera and is able to do so producing meaningful images, then, they are a photographer. It is not keeping your camera on automatic and firing enough pictures to put them together to form an animation. It is putting thought in to pressing the button...most times.

    I would concur with this definition, for photographers, philosophers and poets.

    Damn.... that means I'll have to call myself a polymath!

    As I get older, titles are becoming less important to me. Most people are like a diamond that has many facets. You'll miss the whole jewel if you just look at one facet. Calling me a "photographer" is not that important to me. I'm not what I do. However, I'd like to be called a "Renaissance man"

    I would not mind being known as one while I am still alive!

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
