A Photo Student’s Appreciate a Photographer week

So, the jobs of photographer and photojournalist rank right around being a maid, undertaker or garbage collector in a recent survey of the 200 best jobs of 2010. We’ve seen this before: in 2007 photographers were near the bottom of a list of people who consider themselves “very happy.” APhotoEditor’s concerns about that previous survey seem just as reasonable in light of the current one; I’d imagine working photojournalists and full-time advertising photographers have a very different level of job satisfaction than a Sears portrait photographer or a weekend warrior football photographer.

In light of the news, James Pomerantz at APhotoStudent has declared this week “Appreciate a Photographer Week” and suggests that we send an email each day to one photographer whose work we like. Great idea!
