The Death of High St. Portrait Photography?

Terry Lane, over at the Age, is claiming that Photographers better watch out, as Mums armed with DSLRs are taking work away from them. He has a point, but I can think of plenty of Melbourne based photographers who were simply smart business operators with a camera, this is nothing new in the arena of professional portrait photography. In the ever spirally contest to produce the next big look, Pro's have been squabbling for years. The chase for the dollar is getting a little tougher, in the end only the fit survive.

Personally I could care less. For me, photography gets less and less about a good photograph, but more and more about what defines a photograph.

Thank God for my teaching gig eh.
