Do you Take pictures -or- Make pictures

It's become more apparent to me that there are two different approaches by photographers to their photography.

One group Takes a picture, whether it be a landscape, a bride and groom, a sport activity, their kids, birds, street scene, etc.

The other group starts with a vision somewhere in their head and builds that image in their studio or out on location whether it be a dream, or a fantasy or an editorial comment or a fashion spread, product or commercial shoot, etc.

I am mostly a picture taker. But I admire the picture makers. So what are you?

EDIT - I'm sure someone will post the comment "Does it matter?" The answer is no. But it interesting as to how one approaches that little rectangle that is their photography.
