I don't meet too many photographers where I live. It's a small town, and the ones that are here are a tight clique.
However, I met a local J-School student at the University of Oregon. We talked about the work we do, we discussed the finer points of photojournalism, editorial, and commercial photography, and the general state-of-the-photo-industry stuff.
I felt a certain amount of know-it-all-ism coming from him.
This guy actually said to me, "so, basically you sellout to the highest bidder." So matter-of-factly. I didn't know how to respond.
I've known a few AP photographers over the years, they never seemed that arrogant.
I'm wondering if this is a new skill they're teaching students these days. How do you respond to that?
