So I did a little research on why some photographers swear by their cameras not to marry a fellow photographers. Although some of the reasons seemed mundane, it was interesting to know that even some photographers doubt the money-making potentials of the profession. The emphasis of my interviews was geared more towards the female photographers not wanting to marry their male counterparts/colleagues. The following are the 2 major reasons given
1. Boredom: Many photographers feel it will be boring deciding to live your life with someone of the same profession. Imagine a couple going out on a date and all they seem to be able to talk about is the last wedding photography they took or how one composition wasn’t great or how to buy the picture on the restaurant’s menu is overexposed. Or what else would they talk about.
2. Job Security: Most female photographers consider a photographer’s source of income is too unstable to build a marriage on. They prefer someone that is gainfully employed by a reputable organization so as to guaranty that an amount of funds was flowing in monthly.
All these reasons seem genuine but I’m not sure a person’s career choice are determinants of whether they’ll be marriage material. I wonder what must have transpired for the doctors that married themselves or for bankers that marry fellow bankers. One lady photographer even confessed that she wouldn’t mind marrying the Kelechi Amadi-Obi of today but she wouldn’t agree to marry him when he just started his career; reason being Kelechi is perceived to be more successful now that in 2000. She wanted someone that will exude a level of accomplishment and riches. It is well.
Perhaps there might be other reasons why photographers don’t want to marry each other. I wonder what Zack & Jodi’s take on this is. Or what reasons do you (Yes, you…the photographer reading this) have for not wanting to marry a photographer. Don’t worry, you can drop your comments anonymously and no one will sue you for it. Let me know your take on this.
