MWAC??

Monday, April 16, 2007

I usually love the articles in the N.Y.Times but found this one insulting to female photographers. Seems some photographers refer to female portrait photographers who are Moms as "MWACs" (Moms with a camera)and think they are under cutting professional portrait photographers livelyhood by charging less. This is a another backlash against women.

There have always been GREAT women photographers who happen to be Mothers (Julia Margaret Cameron was probably the first!) but we shouldn't be stigmatized by our gender or roles as Moms.

You'd never think of someone calling a male photographer a Dad with a camera!

I think they're just jealous of all the incredible new and innovative work out there and can't stand all the new competition that digital photography has opened up!
