Songs For Photographers

It's a tough world out there for photographers these days. We live in a world where most people have a camera with them at all times (via their cellphones). Digital imaging software is readily available, and you can find .99 cent apps that will make your cell phone photos look incredible, or publish them instantly. The problem here is that many people now think they're expert photographers, and this makes it harder for the real professionals to make a living. Why hire a photographer if uncle Jim can do it? But no matter how cheap and easy photography tools become, photography will always be an art, and the cream will rise to the top. This playlist is a tribute to those photographers who still take the art seriously.
