Of course, a photographer can have whatever attitude they wish.

But I suspect that their attitude might reflect their competence as well.

Really good photographers know how to schmooz and mold events in their 
favor without being overbearing and dictatorial. I've been to enough 
weddings to know how to instantly spot the good photographers from the 
lousy photographers.

Mark Rabiner photographed my daughter's wedding last summer in Monterey. 
Mark hadn't photographed a wedding in a decade, or more. He was probably 
the most professional photographer, at a wedding, that I have ever 
witnessed. He and my daughter talked things over and away he went. You both 
didn't realize that he was there, and then did realize that he was there. 
Like the Predator. Only visible when he uncloaked.

The wedding photographs are stellarly fantastic.

Mark is an amazing photographer.
