Is It Possible to Fake a Professional Photographer?

The brilliant guys at DigitalRevTV did an interesting experiment.  They took a non-photographer and showed him the ropes for a week and put him up against a real professional photographer.  They tried to find out if someone could spot the fake.  It’s an interesting point that they make.  Fancy gear and expensive equipment doesn’t make you a professional.  To me, a professional photographer is someone that has experience, knowledge, vision and creativity.  Those four things combined cannot be substituted by equipment.

Think about this the next time you decide to get a friend to do your photos instead of a professional.
