With the prevalence of good camera equipment, there are apparently more photographers in the United States than there are models. I didn't look this stat up, so it could be hogwash, but I would believe it. To some extent I am one of these, "if it weren't for technology I wouldn't be doing this" people. As I said at the beginning of this, I am a nobody and beyond that my images are not shocking. There is nothing repulsive or ludicrous about what or how I shoot. I will never get a death threat because of my photography unless it is from an anti-gun fanatic and that would be ironic.
At the same time, I have faith that there is room for my art in this world packed with photographers. That one day those eyes will find what I do and see its merit.
Even if they don't, I will still do what I do. If nothing else it is art to me. I hope that is what those other artists/photographers are saying too.
