    I had a camera at my own son's birth (a couple of photos are in my APUG gallery), but I don't see myself making a business out of it.

    I think that's one of those more female oriented careers

    On an unrelated note, I really hate when people hold cameras like that. It's very poor camera technique. /rant

    Ha! With the ease that today's co-eds take off their clothes for cellphone images I suspect this line of work has a bright future.
    I photograph things to see what things look like photographed.

    I missed the birth of my three guys by 12 hours -- I was 800 miles away when I got the phone call at 10am (babes arrived 3 hours later). My sister was there with a camera, though. I do not think I would have grabbed the 8x10 even if I had made it in time.


    HFD!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I was present at the birth of both of my children that I will never forget it, they were born at home, neither I nor my wife ever had any desire to photograph the event.

    Ditto for my daughters, but I waited until they were cleaned up by me before I took photographs.

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I was loaded down with equipment when my son was born.
    At the very last minute I decided not to photograph the festivities ...
