It's a strange symbiosis.

Hacker... That's pretty much how I feel too, and I much prefer being called 'photographer', or 'darkroom printer', than 'artist'.

Glad you're able to enjoy your hobby, and to have a passion.
I sometimes call photography my 'insanity asylum', because of how it helps relieve stress from the rest of my life. Am I deconstructing the reasons for being a photographer now?
