What can I say? I'm in a sinister mood.

I'm a photographer.

I'd say I'm a person who enjoys photography, especially the work of others here on flickr. I am always amazed at how talented everyone is, including yourself, Jason, and I hope to learn from everyone! Cheers! :D

I'm thinking, specifically of this article --

I read this over a year ago, and the lesson of Wade Heninger really, really made me think. What am I in this for? Stuff, or pictures?

I think I depending on what mood (phase.. whatever)I am in , I am both.
Right now, I am a photographer. Probably 85% of the time I am this way.

Four weeks ago, I was obsessively researching my next large equipment purchase. I pushed sessions back so I could have said equipment for them. Now, I am happy (though not totally, since I had to send the new stuff in already) and have no yearnings whatsoever.

Draw your own conclusions, as perception is reality. :)

Eh, I feel like it switches back and forth, which is frustrating as heck.

I'm a camera pornographer. I buy gear and take photos of it. Then share that as my photography.

I will go one step further: I am an assignment photographer.

I collect equipment so that I am not limited to what assignments I can handle.

hmm, thats a hard one... I like getting new stuff... but I also like taking photos... though I am very critical of anything I do, so sometimes I feel like I should give it up... but I keep buying more gear and taking more pictures...

Im a very indecisive photographer/gear collector...

photographer all the way, although you need stuff to take different shots, so I have a lot of stuff, but need more

I would consider myself a photographer, although most of the time I feel more like a pretender, a glorified shutter actuator. It doesn't really matter though, because it's fun for me, and I'm not inhibiting anyone by doing what I do.

I'll let you all sort out the details of whether it's better to be a gear collector or a photographer, and then I'll go right out and continue to do exactly as I please.

Used to be a collector of things until I sold it all off and now work with the min. It makes me feel much more free
