    To read posts here a TPF it would seem most pros just shoot weddings. Maybe a few do senior portraits. Does any pro here a TPF do anything else?

    Any photojournalists? Any war photographers?

    Any boudoir photographers?

    Anyone work for Playboy or National Geographic?

    Does anyone photograph dead bodies for the police?

    I don't know what the other pros shoot, but I know Ken Rockwell shoots a D40.

    I shoot a T1i and I'm a combat photographer for the Space Shuttle Atlantis. I would show you some of my pictures, but they're highly classified.

    :D

    The few pros I have met (minus wedding photogs) rarely spend time talking about it on forums. The national geographic photographer I purchased my 1d mark II from didn't even have photographs on his walls (he had paintings).

    Wonder if it is a way to separate work and personal lives... and its true that a hobby stops being hobby once you make a profession out of it.


    fyi.. I believe OP meant subject matter not equipment...

    Good point. Another example of me reading what I want to be there vs. what's actually there. :)

    :er: Right. Sometimes it's not until after you post that you realize your words can have multiple interpretations.

    And some people intentionally interpreted it the wrong way! lol.

    And yeah, it does seem most pros shoot wedding, I mean, that's the one that have the most opportunities. Oh and X-Ray, does that count? :).

    Well, okay, I'm a photojournalist/photo editor for a newspaper. Been doing that since 1978. Although I don't post much, I do check out the forums daily.

    As for putting up photos, I'm not at liberty to post photos I shoot for the newspaper on other websites.
