Photographer, Still Frame
You tried and failed to make it as an artistic photographer. The only thing you're taking now are mental pictures of the inside of your cardboard box. Click.
You're a photographer at Walmart's photography studio. You earn a regular paycheck but have to work hard to avoid taking pictures of exposed and enormous butt cracks all day long.
You are a photographer for your city's newspaper. You make a fair living, you do interesting and rewarding work, and once in a while, your stuff makes the front page. You won Best Zoom in 2011.
You're a talented and well-respected photographer who does work for a number of national magazines. You once got to shoot Blake Lively in a teddy.
You're an independent, artistic photographer who has achieved (B-list) movie star status. Your gallery shows are well-attended and your photos go for a pretty penny. You laugh in your high school art teacher's face.
