Professional photography isn’t about “skills creativity and talent”. It’s about making money. It’s a business.

 

Sure you need some level of those things, but you also need to provide a consistently good product for your customers. That requires quality equipment that is durable and reliable. Anyone shooting a wedding with a M4/3 camera or a point and shoot might get a couple good shots that look fine on a computer screen, but that’s not what a couple getting married wants. They want a couple hundred properly exposed and in focus shots that document their special day. That requires a good body, good lenses and good lighting.

 

All we’re seeing here is a bunch of fauxs trying to justify not having the proper equipment. In the days of film, you didn’t see professionals using 110 or disc cameras. They used 35mm and up. Same thing here.
