Wether you shoot as a profession or just a hobby, if someone asks you what you do? Is your response one of the following:

1. Pro Glamour Photographer
2. Photographer
3. GWC - (guy with camera)
4. Photographer that shoots models
5. Other

I have used "glamour photographer" over the years, and often times I get people looking at me like, I should be pulling a big pink boa out of my sleeve...

Just curious what some of you tell others.

I pretty much stick with "****head" seems to fit best for me.

I typically go with "I'm a photographer who shoots glamour among other things."

"Photographer who specializes in people pictures, such as ..." followed by "portraits," "head shots," "individuals and couples," and so on, tailored to the occasion for whom I am speaking.

If I mention glamour at all, I always mention it as "classic Hollywood style glamour," which is what I like to shoot and my greatest area of interest right now.

I go with 'Photographer' but I like what Marty said also.

I call myself Scott. Referring to myself in the third person gets creepy and the pretty girls run away from us. Why do they run from us? Must be to catch a bus. It's really quite a fuss. It puts the lotion on it's skin or it gets the hose again...

I call my self a amateur photographer seeing how I only been doing photography seriously for a year but few local pros keep telling me I need to start saying pro seeing how I charge money for photos and run it as a part time business.

Usually refer to myself as a photographer or Jim if they want to know my name. Most of the girls that shoot with me call me Jim but they know I have a Canon.

I think Windy has that pink boa now doesn't she?
