  • a person who practices any of the various creative arts, such as a sculptor, novelist, poet, or filmmaker.

So, how DO you define yourself and your work?

Let’s dig in a bit and see how we can improve things.
Firstly, everyone who has the ability to go onto Amazon or go into a store and buy a camera can technically call themselves a photographer. Anyone who can go into a craft shop and buy paint and a canvas can call themselves a painter or an artist, and if they have created a couple of minimal, or creative pieces in the first month or two and a friend or family member bought one…. sure, they can call themselves a professional artist, I guess.

So what do I call myself then?

Good question. If you don’t use photographer or fine art photographer, what can you say? This is where thinking hard about what brought you into this line of work comes into play.
