A Website That Shames Phony ‘Professional’ Photographers From Design Taxi


I love this article published in Design Taxi.

Just about anyone can be a photographer these days—simply purchase a DSLR camera and boom!—you are considered a ‘photographer’. 

However, sisters Ginger and Mary Anne are tired of the countless amateur, wannabes who try to pass themselves off as professionals—just because they own a camera and have access to Photoshop. 

To expose and shame these ‘professionals’ and their poor quality pictures, they have created a website called ‘You Are Not A Photographer’. 

As the sisters describes it, “These buy-a-DSLR-and-open-up-shop photogs need a wakeup call, they are not photographers.” 

Photographers out there, you have been warned! 

Check out some "professional" pictures below:

  1. I know this web site gives quality dependent posts and additional stuff,
    is there any other web site which provides these kinds of things in quality?
