There is nothing wrong with assembly line photography because, as CC says, the business is about making money. We as photographers may balk that it’s not “pure photography” but if you can balance quality with the “take a number” formula, then why not?
Yeah god forbid someone tries to *gasp* make some money to pay the bills. How plebeian of them. Look, I appreciate good photography and detest bad photography as much as anyone else here but photography is really a luxury at the end of the day. “Pure” photography (there’s a reason the starving artist stereotype exists) doesn’t always pay the bills and people have bills to pay.
