You are assuming the photographic "craftsmen" will only know how to produce "boring" photos, which is a strange thing to say.

In my experience as a teacher, craftsmen do occasionally produce stunning images. But the norm follows more along the lines of what Ansel Adams said, "There is nothing worse than a sharp image of a fuzzy concept."

The digital cameras that we have today are very capable of producing technically correct images.  the photos are sharp, properly exposed and in focus.  But they are boring.
