I wish I were. There is also a perception now days with a lot of people. Why do we need pro photographers when have a camera on the cell phone? I have friends who have gone to school for photography who have experienced this to no end.
In the 3d world I get this, were people think it is all automatic, and I do no work and there for I am lazy. The other I get is you do 3D. That must mean your a programer. So annoying.
well, if you saw the snap shots you get from most people you would have a little more confidence (something i lack in the business world, too)), I think its too easy for a photographer to take his work for granted, though.
i havent used many 3D modeling programs (none actually), so i think i can speak for the other side when i say that i always assumed you had to be a programmer to model. What programs are you using?
