As a photographer who also hired photographers . . .

. . . the appellation Fine Arts Photography (er) was an automatic 


It told me the supplicant hadn't done basic background work about the 
company I worked for or the assignment up for hire.

Also found it pretentious. Why would an artist, fine or otherwise, approach 
me for work?

Let clients, customers, collectors, galleries, museums and such attach 
labels -- as is their wont.

We can shoot and enjoy it. Or we can't.

We can meet clients' needs. Or we can't.

We are photographers.

We don't need other names, adjectives, pejoratives, or hectoring
