Photography is one of the basic arts, which has existed since the 5th century. People deem it interesting that moments can be captured and viewed later. Photos are taken at almost all events including birthdays, weddings, and even funerals. Currently, as of the 21st century, photography is considered among the most important professions there are, making cameramen very much sought after.
Even though taking a picture might seem easy, and may seem as though everyone could do it, to be able to take a good picture is considered an art, which can only be done by talented individuals. Learning the right concepts to use, the angles to take from, as well as how good your editing skills are, will tell you how good a photographer you are. People see the pictures you take and can decide if your good or not. As of when the concept of photography began, the snappers at the time were all males. How good you are, will determine how far you will go as a photographer, and how much you get paid by your customers.
Currently, photography is done by both genders, and females are considered good on the job too. It does not really matter which gender is taking the photos, the most important thing people consider is how good their photographer is and the quality of photos that are produced. There haven’t been separate names for either gender in photography, they are all collectively called photographers. Certain people either call them cameramen or camerawomen, but that is almost outdated, which means they are not in use anymore. It is sexist to consider calling men “photographers” and deciding to call women something else. This will imply they’re somewhat less of photographers than men are.
Both in that profession, offering the same skills, the only thing that differentiates them is their genders, and that should not matter. For example, female doctors don’t get called something different from doctors, just because they are females. A doctor is a doctor regardless of what gender it is, the same applies to being a photographer, you’re just called a photographer.
It would not be advisable to treat a female photographer any differently than you would have treated her if it were a man. The best way to define them is by their work since men don’t take pictures differently from how men take theirs. Treating them the same way you would have treated a male will give them the confidence to produce the best work as expected of them. Differentiating their work from that of males would not only intimidate them but make them feel less of what they see themselves to be.
Female snappers are simply called photographers, they are not different from male photographers. The title to professionally address them is the general title for all individuals who take photographs, which are photographers. This is not as rare to anyone as it was when the concept was initially instated, and their number is currently almost on par with that of the male ones.
