it is called commercial photography, nothing more

It's everything! All great art came from commercial activity. We might look at master pieces as great art now, but when they were made they were bread and butter.

But of course, the vast majority of commercial art is not great art. My point is that it's only through a commercial activity that artists can hon their skills sufficiently and to have enough pieces of work to hit on a master piece.

I know a profit-seeking motive is not popular post-2008 financial tsunami but you can't change the truth.
