i am quite curious abt this question.
usually when ur kids ask u why cannot do this why cannot do that, parents usually ans cause i eat salt more than u eat rice.
yet is this really true?
let me set the context so its easier for discussion:
assuming a photographer currently in his teens (lets say 17). he has started shooting from a young tender age of 7, and until now has experience in rangefinders, film slrs, Polaroids, dslrs etc, proficient in photoshop and DI.
an adult of age 30, who has gotten their first dslr from IT show, shoot less than a year.
edited to: which would u hire to shoot photography?
i'm suspecting ppl will be more inclined to the adult due to the age cause personally thats what i'm more inclined to, even though i know that teenager is mroe experienced.
i am further adding on to this topic. realised it may had already been biased
rank the things most important to u when choosing a photographer
4: experience (how long in industry)
5: how big is their company
6: Reputation in industry
7: Integrity of character
