Re: is there room for techno geek freaks in professional photography?

I am everything but a pro but photography has an artistic and technological side. The latter has evolved very quick over the last say decade or so, changing the artistic side as well.

Pro doesn't mean you're a great photographer, it means you get the job done and get paid for it. Specializing in one area is easier than being a good allround advanced amateur imo.

I had a chat at work and was told that the weddingphotographer had my colleage look into the sun (NICE!). Pro photographer, yes still has a business, good one? not my choice.

Tech matters and some people believe that a better camera takes better pictures, only if you can make use of the technology. I think it's only human being proud of your purchase, but it only makes sense if you can use it.

Just like with cars, there is a lot of braggingrights with gear.

And let's not forget that things change in an ever increasing tempo.
