->> "Master Photographer" That's the title given to me by the studio. Of course, it's not as prestigious as it sounds. Really, it means that I'm trusted with money and the images of the students taken that day, and I'm on call all the time because I am qualified to do any job the studio does. Still, to say that I'm a "master photographer" to non-photographers sounds pretty cool.
