Are we photographers or business analysts?

With all these industry news articles and blogers forecasting and pretending to be some sort of authority on photography market, it makes one wonder... What does all of this have to do with photography?

I don't know about others, but I am a photographer. I have been in the business for 48 years. I have heard the predictions of the demise of the profession over and over again throughout that time. All those predictions were wrong. Unfortunately, the Internet has given voice to a huge number of opinionated people who have no credentials to back up their opinions. Now there are some business analysts out there, but much of the analysis I read is speculation developed without proper research. Fortunately, I have learned to disregard that stuff.
