The photographers’ skill is not dependent on location nor on his equipment, many famous photographers have captured exceptional images with a Polaroid or Toy Camera.
When the model is tired, or cannot perform for the camera, it is the photographers responsibility to get creative, even when the model is passed out (the show must go on); perfect example GIA (rent the movie, starring Angelina Jolie).
A models entire career depends on the photographers’ skills – he is the primary person whose skill is used to capture the images that will be used to promote and hire the model – the model utilizes these images to make money .
At times, these images are captured without the use of a Makeup Artist, Hair Stylist, etc. therefore, when these other creative individuals are used, ALL the hard work can be wasted if the photographer does not have the skills.
