No my darlings. I don’t agree. It’s neither my camera nor my camera bag that makes me a photographer. It’s me. I make me a photographer. I’m sure you did this with the best of intentions and you just wanted to draw attention to your range of camera bags with a quirky slogan and a pretty picture. However, you’ve overlooked an important detail: you’ve just denigrated the very people to whom you’re attempting to sell your product. By suggesting that being a photographer is down to kit, you’ve ignored the skill and craft that photographers hone, the hard work that they dedicate to making each picture better than the last.
