Marketing x Commitment2 = Exceptional
Have you heard of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams and David Bailey? Of course you have. But why have you heard of them? Do you think that Cartier-Bresson was the only competent photographer working in Paris in the twentieth century or that Ansel Adams was the only person photographing the Sierra Nevada? And David Bailey, why is he so famous and the dozens of other photographers working in London in the 1960’s aren’t? Why are these people so exceptional? The answer is that they had the required technical skills, their marketing was spot on and they had one hundred percent commitment.

Can photography be called an art form?
I was prompted to write this article when I saw a photographer’s ad in which he described himself as a ‘camera artist’. Is photography an art form? This old chestnut has been around for a long time but is still creating lively debate. Some art critics would scoff at the proposal that photographers are artists but might well sing the praises of a particular photograph.
So the old debate ambles along in its many forms. Does monochrome photography have more artistic merit than full colour? Does the photographer have to print an image in a darkroom to qualify as an artist? (As far as I am aware Cartier-Bresson had all his prints made for him). What place does digital imagery have in the art world?
