What I find annoying in the entire matter is that he is routinely referred to as "a blogger", which is a convenient way of getting around the fact that he is an excellent commercial photographer with some of the most technically perfect and beautiful results I've seen in the world of product photography. He's "a blogger" in the same way Einstein is "a mediocre violin player" or Hemingway is "an alcoholic from Florida". "A blogger" is someone who has no other distinction or qualification other than writing a blog, and to many people here a top photographer suddenly becomes "a blogger" when he criticises their camera.

Fully agree!

But he is a blogger when you talk about one of his blogs. He is a photographer when you are one of his (I'd imagine very satisfied) clients dealing with his photographic output. In different contexts the same person puts on different hats. If you went to one of Einstein's violin performances as a listener, his other more prominent roles in society should be regarded as irrelevant, unless you went to see a freak show and was not interested in the music, which I'm sure the performer would not be happy about.
