My review and respond task for this week was to read chapter three ‘Everyone is a Media Outlet’ from the book ‘Here Comes Everybody (2008)‘ by Clay Shirky. It raises the issues about the digital impact of image making and also how anyone can really take a photograph but does it make them profession…or just an amateur?

“The amateurization of the photographers’ profession began with the spread ofcheap cameras generally, but it really took off with digital photos and online photo hosting sites. The threat to professional photographers came from a change not just in the way photographs were created but in the way they were distributed.”
